Do not become complacent when you have achieved a certain level of success. The reason why many people fail when they have become quite successful is because they start becoming overconfident, proud, too sure of themselves, arrogant, cocky and just plain imbalanced in their consciousness. They have moved off from the center. There is a center state of mind in between the state of failure and the state of success. Send forth your intent and let it go without doubt or being too sure and complacent.
Remember that there are no certainties, only probabilities. You create certainty by controlling probabilities. You have to be fully intentional and single minded in order to polarize probabilities one way or another. Certainty does not exist on its own except in the plane of absolute truth. But in the plane of the relative where experiences exist, what you have are probabilities. The relative plane does not contain certainty because that which changes cannot be absolute. To know this truth is to be of a meek spirit.
The principle of rhythm is always at work. It is important to stay at the center in order to transcend rhythm. If you move to one extreme by becoming overconfident and too sure about yourself, the return swing of the pendulum will smack you in the backside. Being overconfident to the point of complacency will cause your intentions to lack power and focus necessary to succeed, and also you will activate the opposite swing of the pendulum to create opposite effect from your intentions. Failure is self created.
You must always give your full heart and soul each time you do anything and not become complacent and lapse in your focus and direction of energy. To live is to create. How can you at any moment live consciously without the creative urge? Each soulful moment of living is what enables you and others to experience the fullness of your being. Everything around you is your life and is created by your life energy. Slackness within reflects as slackness without. Act completely and your world reflects fulness.
A haughty spirit comes before a fall because it has swung to one extreme and activates the opposite swing of the pendulum. When you become proud by thinking you can always succeed without acknowledging the probable scenarios of failure and start taking your success for granted, the principle of rhythm will express the opposite polarity of truth that says you cannot succeed and will create failure to show you that this is so. Therefore one must remain centered and meek in order not to be opposed.
There is always balance in the universe and one must always keep that in mind when it comes to probable outcomes. When one’s mind is focused on the center and moving in the direction one wants to go, then one will have the universe working with him and not against him. To focus on the center is to be focused on God because God is the center. It keeps you humble and directed when your trust is in the power that works within you. Hence, focus on the center of truth and you will never go astray.
The meek shall inherit the earth because humility causes one to be in harmony with the truth and natural laws of the universe. It is said that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. But this also works according to universal law. When you become proud and swing to one polarity of the truth, you are creating your own resistance by activating the opposing swing of the pendulum. Therefore you’re getting in your own way and causing your own downfall. As God, you resist or help yourself.
An enlightened mind is one that understands the truth and nature of the universe and goes along with it. Enlightenment is the key to maintaining good success and escaping the suffering and setbacks that plague those who overstep the boundary and need a wake up call towards their imbalanced consciousness. All suffering is the counterbalance to push people back into balance. Those who deliberately seek after enlightenment would eliminate much suffering through balancing their consciousness.
Always return to the center and remember the principle of rhythm so that you will know the truth and walk with meekness and full direction of your soul. To become proud is to become too sure and complacent. In the universe, everything is a probability. Every act of creation is an act of altering probability. Energy and focus is needed to make one outcome more probable than another. Meekness is emptiness, the balanced state of the universe. Pride is illusion and an imbalanced state which collapses.
Each time you want to create success, you must put in your whole soul and give it your all. We either progress or regress. We never stand still. When you rest on your laurels, you stand still and start to regress. That is why people who have arrived at a peak and stay there start to decline from that point onward. The principle of rhythm is always at work and you must keep being in motion to counter it. There’s always a natural move to decline when at a peak. You must keep directing energy to be on top.
Everything in your life is influenced by your magic. To be G-d is to be humble and fully intentional. There is no pride in divinity nor is there slackness of intention. G-d is G-d, but he understands probabilities and creates with full intention with neither complacency nor slackness of will. Magical work requires consciousness and energy. You must always raise power, program it with your mind and direct it to accomplish what you desire. Failure comes when you lose your focus. Be meek and concentrate.
