Quick disclaimer (please take a moment to read)

Hey kids

I was just watching an old episode of the Twilight Zone (the Rod Serling TV series from the '60's—hmmm . . . is it time to start calling it the "1960's" yet? After all we are in a new century and who knows how long this post will be up). Anyway, if you are not familiar with it, The Twilight Zone (that is a link to Youtube)  was not for everyone. It is an all-time classic now, but it was definitely a niche show, and that is the point of this post. I want all of you to become Twilight Zones.

I have spent my life examining the world from a philosophical view; it is simply in my blood, who I am. I have studied magic, divination, religion, and philosophy since first awareness. Sometimes I wished I would have studied high finance, or how to become a celebrity—those paths seem to be more physically rewarding. I see things differently than most people it seems. I am adamant on things like truth in metaphysics and the destruction of superstition and lies perpetuated through the generations to make way for real truth and workable magic that gets you results you can see, touch, taste, and feel. This puts me at odds with many "experts" (and pseudo-experts) in the fields of metaphysics and divination. I am a niche in a sense, and I know I am "not for everyone." Many people desperately want to cling to fantasy and try to make it their reality, even if at the end of their lives they fail miserably. I simply cannot do that. I must find answers that work, are repeatable, and can be passed on to future generations.

So you will read here, and in my books, on my websites, and hear in my audio lessons and interviews, more than my opinions. You will be subjected to my philosophy on magic and divination and philosophy, even as I try to remain objective and allow everyone to believe whatever it is that makes them happy. I do not apologize for this and I don't want you to ever apologize for what you believe in, as long as it works for you and creates real, tangible results you can see, touch, taste, and feel. It is my "job" in life, my mission to help you evolve, even beyond what I have been capable of. I am here to help as much as I can for as long as I can, and then I will be somewhere else, learning and doing, and hopefully helping out.

In the course of all of this I will present the viewpoints of others: students, experts, artists, teachers, and authors. I may present points I strongly disagree with but see as valid enough that you should be exposed to them. Other times, like my previous post about the Joker in playing cards, I will refute lies and misinformation that is poisoning the well of current accepted knowledge. I will leave it up to you to do even a little research to verify that what I say is true, or if you do deep research and find I am wrong on anything I am eager to see proof where I have erred so that I may correct it.

I want you to stretch yourself beyond your perceived limitations and grow to your fullest extent, to find the lasting happiness so many seek (and often fail to attain). This blog, and the associated websites and books are  on the subject of tarot, but other times we will explore astrology, energy work, manifestation, confidence, popularity, and prosperity. It is my belief that to find happiness you must find a balance of responsibility which creates self-worth, pleasure, and evolution, so that you overcome obstacles that plague so many in this world.

Now, on a side note, given the basic capitalistic state of affairs our global society runs on, we all need to pay the rent. I can pay the rent by working a mundane job that has nothing to do with helping people, and squeeze in a few hours a week doing the great work or I can pay my bills by working full time to help as many of you as I can. I choose the latter. To this extent I will occasionally point you to products and services you may benefit from. I will never suggest anything that I have found to be a scam, or questionable. If I suggest an author whose views I personally disagree with and have a link to their products or services I may make that link an affiliate link, meaning that if you decide to try their style of teaching I may get a tiny commission of the sale. I want to make sure this is clear as I believe in transparency. I am not here to sell you products. I am here to help, and in that process things like books, videos, seminars, and so on may cost money. That is the way of life. Until health care is free (don't hold your breath on that ever happening) and my mechanic fixes my car for free, food being free, rent being free, and of course my internet connection :-)  . . . I think you get the idea. Until all of that happens it is natural that we all must find a way to earn money to survive and thrive.

It is not for me to tell you how to live your life but I hope you will provide real value to the world around you and know the labor and psychic expenditure you put forth has value. I want you to be the best readers the world has ever seen, unconstrained by false beliefs and ludicrous superstitions that hold so many back. I want people to value you, and the gifts you give to them. I am here. I am me, and not much else. I make no claims of supernatural powers. In fact all of us have abilities others would find amazing if we only knew ourselves and honed those abilities.

Find yourself. I can help you do this. Any competent astrologer can help you find your special psychic powers. But find them. Train yourself, even if "you have no time," because time is the only thing you truly own. We all make "deals with the devil" meaning that we all trade our time for work, family, or whatever responsibilities that demand we sacrifice our dreams and goals to the realities of the life we choose. We all have obligations and distractions. But make some time for yourself and find out who you are. Let me help, or get someone who will. No matter what your religious views are knowing yourself is paramount to success and happiness, and will cut years off of your attempts to find happiness. Knowing who you are tells you what you want and like.

This life, whether a one-shot deal, or one of many, is the only life you have right now. It is the only one that counts. Make something of it. Make yourself happy and bring value to the world by being that amazing super-human who lives inside you. Pick one thing and perfect it. Become a niche. You may "not be for everyone." No one is. That is the problem with religion; there simply is no "one size fits all" and the more we try to force our beliefs on others the more we are like a shoe salesman who tries to sell everyone the same exact shoe—one pair; forever. No choices but this shoe. Take the time to be you, and I will be me. I hope to god we can all find a way to get along. But until then just be you and I will try to understand and help you along. I hope you will do the same for others, even when we disagree.

Thanks for reading.
