Our Careers In This Life & Beyond
When we are
young, our parents always told us to study hard, get a degree, get a good job
and then settle down.
When we are
growing up, we find that there are more jobs in our current life that we must
do; and we need to take care of the life beyond too.
think that we need to do many jobs concurrently in this life:
worldly job for earning bread and butter; provided of course if you are born
with a silver spoon in your mouth.
not-so-worldly job that we need to do concerning the occult world.
out-of-the-world after death matters or ‘religion’ in short.
My point is
that all the three jobs are inter-related and complementary to each other. When
we strive to make a living (with some lucky few exceptions), blockages block
our progress; so we turn to the supernatural world for solution. But the
supernatural worlds are not so dependable even though we have invested in a
large quantity of money and time; and at last we turn to ‘religion’ to seek a
peace in mind and further to take care of the mysterious after death matters.
I would think that the occult sciences or magic if you would call it, it in
fact ‘religion’ of this material world; while the secular ‘religion’ is the
religion of the hereafter. Magic works on the assumptions that our current
world can be changed with magic rituals; but ‘religions’ tell us to accept our
fates as our current challenges are not the ultimate aim in this life, the
hereafter world is.
cannot do too many changes with our worldly job: we will need to go to the
workplace to face our bosses and fellow workers, we will need to take care of
our families and etc. The magic gives us some sort of euphoria and a hope of ‘tomorrow
will be better’ which may be a motivational force to move on in life. Religion
teaches us to accept our fates and wait for the coming world.
life would be a lopsided one if we only concentrate on one aspect of our jobs:
we only work, work and work; when we have lost our worldly job, we shall feel
at a lost and feeling depressed.
we only do magic, then we would not enjoy the world as it is for magic is not
dependable; but magic can definitely do wonders in time in our time in need.
we only study religion, then we will always hope for a better hereafter life;
which we may or may not enjoy.
It is my opinion that we should work hard to earn money, work magic to smooth things out and
then perform religious study for our next life; which no one can escape this
eternal curse of sentient beings.
