We are in unprecedented times where uncertainty is the dominant theme. Kept within our homes for an indeterminant time, we can either succumb to fear or take the opportunity to access essential knowledge that will take us forward in our endeavors. This is when the river of creativity can really start flowing.
One thing is for sure – the show must go on. What we return to will likely be very different but I think one thing that will emerge from this is a number of highly creatve entrepreneurs who will have much to contribute.
With that in mind it will serve us to take some cues from our ancestors who preserved certain guiding principles that have fallen by the wayside. Our schools have been woefully negligent in ensuring students learn these principles that enhance our personal life as well as our ability to function in the commercial world where many of us are cultivating/conducting business.
This knowledge provides us with an edge when we understand for instance, how contracts work, what a conditional acceptance is, how to properly sign our name so we don’t give away our rights etc. Many have no idea how to form a contract, nor do they realize that we contract everyday by our words and actions in addition to forming written agreements. This information is actually spiritual in nature and applies to the magical arts as well, and I find it compelling and deeply empowering.
As well, Maxims of Law are guiding principles of truth that have been passed down over time to guide us not only in the area of law but in every facet of our life because ultimately, natural law is designed to do just that. A maxim of law I find most comforting and inspiring right now says, “As a thing is bound so it is unbound.” No matter what the problem there must be a solution, there can’t not be. Another maxim we should all bear in mind at this time says, “Favors from government often carry with them enhanced measures of obligation,” Just thought I’d throw that in.
In addition, the ability to recognize flawed arguments will keep us from being manipulated or swept up into emotional nonsense. The logical fallacies are a list of flawed arguments that are ubiquitous in media and our everyday conversations. To recognize these will change your life. When I began studying them I realized how both my ex-husband and myself used them and of course we got very caught up in emotion and thus resolved very little in those arguments. I realize now that I could have avoided so much suffering if I’d only studied this material. With everyone stuck at home, this knowledge could be a godsend.
I will be teaching an online course on these essential principles in an effort to enhance our ability to move forward effectively on a personal and professional level. Whatever world we return to will be better served by those who possess a clear understanding of foundational and fundamental principles that will enhance our ability to establish harmony and honor in all our affairs. This knowledge produces noble leaders and entrepreneurs who adhere to the timeless guiding wisdom of the ancients. This wisdom will not fail us as we learn to steer our ships through these very strange and different waters.
We perish for lack of knowledge and the truth shall set us free. May our world be restored to one that once again adheres to timeless guiding wisdom and may all who are endeavoring to carve a life for themselves be served by the light of truth.
