Magic for Climbing Mountains
I once heard that someone gave the reason for climbing a high mountain as: "Because it's there." Of course there is more to it than that. They must have really been saying, "Because it's there and I am excited about conquering it." One purpose of magic is to give us the zing and excitement to energize us to accomplish our goals. The first magical thing to do in getting ready to conquer a mountain is to clarify your goals. You must know which mountain you are climbing. A basic principle of magic is: magic is well formed. Another thing to do is gather all your needed spells and magic wands. Or get you equipment and plans well worked out. Then you must plan for the zing. The motivation, the excitement, is important. Please don't climb any mountains just because you think you 'should' climb one. Build up your feelings, your sense of hunger to climb, your sense of risk and adventure. Dare to believe in your self. Every task, even, or especially, the daunting tasks are more likely to succeed when you put in a dash of magic and stir well. Climb mountains. Grab some success for yourself. One agonizing step and pull at a time, bit by bit you CAN do it. May the spark be with you.
