“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.”
― Warren Buffett
The Wizard’s Reflection
Casting The Circle
By far the most empowering thing we can do to cultivate our ability to say yes to life is to have a healthy relationship with saying no. A true “no” is rarely even needed to be spoken, for it ripples into the reality around us. It arises from an integrated, embodied certainty of the sword blade of choice. This life-giving blade cuts both ways. To cut things out of our lives that do not serve us we must also cut the corollaries out of ourselves.
To work magic we must have the space around us within which we can cultivate, circulate and resonate our will into being. Without the ability to say no to what impedes our chosen energetic currents we cannot hope to be successful in our aims. The art of alchemy is entirely reliant on the ability to craft an appropriate container for the chosen operation.
