New Magic for a New Era: How to Live a Charmed Life is a book of magic. When we get out of our own way, magic opens doors for us that take us down new and unimaginable paths.
This practical book is about how to undertake a personal transformation of a different, more subtle yet more powerful, nature.
Mindful Time Management
›Like the lack of money, the lack of time is perhaps the next biggest excuse for us not achieving our dreams. The two, of course, are interlinked.
The secret to living such a charmed existence lies in taking control of your Personal Time Machine–your mind–or more specifically, your minds. People who live a time-full existence are super-productive, super-creative, and also super-lucky.
What are the keys to living such a life?
It lies in understanding how the perception of the passage of time is created by where and how we direct our attention. If we lose focus from the task in hand, then our efficiency drops. By using simple mindfulness techniques, our minds can become immune from the distractions and bandits of time that are sent to plague us. When we live a timeful existence, we are able to jump outside linear time and tasks seem to get done within the time we have allocated them.
Take time under your control:
So, just imagine that there is all the time in the world–what do you need more time for?
What would and could you do if there were enough hours in the day? What excuses would you have to let go?
Path of learning and advancement
›Karma is a powerful concept that allows us to gain perspective on both why we are here and what direction we should take in life. The term ‘Karma’ is also one that can get hijacked and misused.
Karma is not some kind of cosmic retribution system. Simply put, karma is your collective experience and learnings to date.
Karma, though, does not just work linearly forwards with Time’s Arrows. Karma describes a path of learning and advancement, and that is the context in which it is used when we want to awaken our inner magician. Karma is simply the sum of all our past learnings combined with our intent in the now and our actions going forward.
In the context of karma, there are only two types of events–ones that confirm we are on-path and ones that tell us we have strayed off it. When we are on it, life is a breeze. When we fall off the path, life is a struggle.
Voiding karma is something so subtle that it is also quite elusive. It is more an intent than an action in itself and once you make the decision to void your karma, the karmic purpose itself doesn’t so much disappear but it crystallises and appears in full view.
We understand what it is we came here to do.
There are many routes to enlightenment. We each have to find our own path.
So how do you choose?
Which path is right for you?
