Nowadays in the Magical community we all too often see things like "I need a spell to get a job" or "I need a ritual to find true love." Yes Magic can help us with these things but magic only helps what we have already done on a physical level on the material plane. We cannot cast a spell to find a job but then never submit an application and expect to get a job. Magic would help you on your search for a job and line up the circumstances for you to find the job you want but you still have to put forth the effort. The Christians have a saying that goes "God only helps those who help themselves." I personally believe that this saying is true also with magic, the gods and other beings that watch over us. They only help us when we have helped ourselves. Think about it in this way, would it be fair if you were always there for someone helping and supporting them and they never did anything to help themselves? In my opinion no. We are the walkers of our own path and magic is the road that helps us get there but we must be willing to actually walk and break a sweat otherwise the road will become a dead end. Well thank you to those who read this and please comment and let me know what you think of this subject and if you disagree definitely comment. I like to hear both sides of a subject I find it very fascinating. Besides our differences are what make us interesting.
Blessings of the Spirits on you all
