Hi, how's it going

I like precepts, I'm going to throw some at the RSF collective
This one has been on my mind past couple weeks, creeping back in

I learnt this one from my first teacher, a secret ninja master ;D

The wording, I'm probably mangling it from memory:

#You may forget your Karma, but rest assured, your Karma will never forget you!

added embellishment and emphasis is all mine.

keep trucking'
kind regards

I heard a old monk said:

Nice one peacedog,
going to give that a look

I got 108 of these.. way back when, and they still stay with me.
and yes, beads can have their use (like keeping counts) in various practices.
no need to tell you I'm sure.

Eg. they can be handy if you're doing auto suggestion type stuff @ bedtime :)
for example



kind regards

nice article, I can recognise the auto suggestion angle from the work of Bardon, i know you are a follower of.
All I'd say is there are "precepts" (like you describe) and there are precepts..

This set of 108, can be quite far reaching and deep.
It's like a transformative little system in of itself I found.
Auto suggestion protocols not needed.

The group I was in got 3 a week, where we would meet each of us would go through what we made of the ones from the last week.
Once a seed is in your head, I guess it can sit and grow.. as long as you let it.

Can be much more than a set of daily rules/positive affirmations to regulate potentially harmful and negative behaviours and habits - or similar.
Let's say, more philosphical in nature, perhaps ?

As long as it is within the realm of physics it is doable.

The thing about being a magician is that it is an inherently dual path.

People get hung up on the part where you gain the ability to shape reality to your will.

The other half of that reality is the ability to change yourself in accordance with your will.

And yes, precepts can be both tactical and strategic. It’s fundamentally a form of astral magic and also allows you to engage with egregores on your own terms rather than passively the way most people do.
