Magic, history, and the inventions of the individual

What follows are notes I made prior to putting together my second collection, Exit From The Matrix. The whole point of that collection was to provide numerous exercises a person could do on a daily basis—exercises which would reveal and expand his latent power to create reality.
“Reality is invented. It isn’t just ‘there.’”
“There is the study of the past; then there is the obsession with the past; and finally, the blithe acceptance of the past as that thing which molds the individual and makes him what he is. The third preoccupation is by far the most injurious. The sting of its injection is never felt. The fluid enters the bloodstream and paralyzes the mind one gradual degree at a time. The result is an addict who considers himself highly sensible and realistic and comfortable.”
“As long as the concept of The Individual lasts in society, before it disappears under a bulbous landfill of psychological spin and academic garbage, the official approach is placing him, the individual, in a context, a tradition, a historical time line, in order to make sure he believes he is reacting to the forces around him and the history prior to him. In this way, the individual is never seen to invent anything; he is at best responding to ‘the problems of his time.”
“Even when the idea of magic is somehow connected to individual freedom and power, we are referred to older studies and systems of magic, as if the past is the only place we can visit to understand what the individual is capable of. This is absolute nonsense.”
“Rejecting ‘the individual as an artifact of history and tradition’ is like stepping off a speeding train and floating upward, where one can view, below, a giant machine spooling out the insanity known as social sciences. The machine concocts reports of tribes, clans, nations, religions, customs, rules, dogmas, which supposedly describe thousands of years of human experience. Floating free, one can see these trillions of data are tinged with the attitude that the individual has never been vitally important. The machine is making that argument.”
“Here is a proposition for you: ‘If magic, in any interpretation of that word, exists, a person must find it in the past.’ This is like saying a person must move around in a wheelchair, in order to understand his power.”
“What the individual invents and creates makes history, makes new space and time. This isn’t just magic; it is THE magic.”
“When you listen to a symphony, you experience a different space and time continuum. You see it, feel it, inhabit it. It’s easy to say that continuum isn’t real, but it is. If it were somehow removed from your experience, the symphony would come across to you in an entirely different way. A shrunken dilapidated way.”
“The study of symbology conveniently forgets that all symbols are, originally, inventions. They don’t intrinsically mean anything. Every symbol and its meaning was first invented by an individual, not a group.”
“The individual isn’t the end-point of time. He creates time. But this statement is true at a level most people don’t want to explore. They prefer to believe they are fitting into a system that has already been prepared for them. This is like believing all meals just show up at the table, rather than considering the possibility of cooking meals in the kitchen one’s self.”

What has been called The Matrix is a series of layers. These layers compose what we call Reality. Reality is not merely the consensus people accept in their daily lives. It is also a personal and individual conception of limits. It is a perception that these limits are somehow built into existence. But this is not true.
What I’ve done here is remove the lid on those perceived limits. This isn’t an intellectual undertaking. It’s a way to open up space and step on to a new road.
That road travels to more and more creative power, joy, and fulfillment.
During that great adventure, the individual experiences what has been labeled “paranormal” and “synchronistic” and “magical.” These words really don’t do us justice. They only hint at what we are and what we can do.
I put this collection together because it expresses, explains, and shows, in detail, how the individual can rediscover and reclaim his/her true power.
That process, that engagement, that life is beyond solving problems. Our problems, at the core, exist only because we have “misplaced an infinity.”
Everything I’ve done and written in the past 20 years has been aimed, one way or another, at bringing back that infinity, seeing through the layers of disguise, and moving ahead on the sunlit road we all desire.
This collection is for you, for me, for all of us.
We have, each one of us, an infinite life, lived in a world that is convinced it is bounded.
It’s time we dissolved that false contradiction.
