Two keys open the door to the wizard’s world. Or if you will, two lamps light the wizard’s path. One must first grasp ethics as key; one’s path must be lit by an ethical light. The one who would be wizard must live justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with one’s God. Justice is key; justice lights one’s path in life. Mercy adorns justice, and humility adorns mercy. Arrogance disdains justice, shows no mercy, and crowds out the feet of the divine. When one walks arrogantly one walks alone, and is soon lost. But humility is always ready to go where the divine goes.
And that gives us the second key to the wizard’s world; the second light upon the wizard’s path: Sensitivity to one’s divine calling; a sensitivity borne in humility. Or if you will, aesthetics: One must learn to trust one’s deepest intuitions about the true, and the harmonious, and the beautiful. If one has paranormal senses, then one must use those to listen for the divine. When one practices this sensitivity, then one begins to learn the signs that show when one’s path is the right path: The sudden states of altered awareness; the synchronicities in daily life; the dreams at night that are more than dreams.
The masters of wintertime wish to keep this world a frozen barren reality forever. But a new world of the Spirit is coming. But it’s coming like the springtime: one small green blade at a time.
