Dear forum members,
I opened 'The Magical Battle of Britain' to a random page today, and I was struck by the wisdom and relevance of the first paragraph I read, which follows below:
"As has often been pointed our in these Letters, we can help to bring the Aquarian Age by living individually in the Aquarian manner. Even those who do not understand occultism can understand the power of example; but there is another factor in the matter as well as example. The sprinkling of water alone is not sufficient to induce the rain to fall - the rain god has to be invoked, just as it is not enough merely to receive the Eucharist passively, it has to be received "with intention". If we live in the Aquarian way "with intention" we shall exercise more power than that of example as has so often been said before in these Letters; we shall inoculate the group mind of the race at a subconscious level.”
What Dion Fortune seems to emphasize here is that the path is not just about practicing meditation and/or ritual, but also about continuously striving to live our lives in accordance with certain higher principles. Not an easy task if you ask me!
Any further thoughts?
