About 5 years ago, I hit the Lottery (Big money, not bragging, but it was a HUGE Payout.), using the 'New Avatar Power' book & Cobb's/Malak's 'Mystical Grimoire'.
Prior, I worked Magick for almost 40 years.
As an offering, around the anniversary of my lottery winning, I will email random people and tell them about the NAP/MG, usually individuals in magickal forums, yahoo groups, etc., who are beginners and having no luck financially.
This year, I thought I would do something cool, and post here, on an actual forum, which even had their own "NAP" category.
In retrospect, BIG MISTAKE ON MY PART TO POST HERE.
You can delete My Account.
That is an admirable thing to do; it really is.
It's just unfortunate that your lack of knowledge of Qabalah and GD based magick meant that you couldn't see how the NAP is a simple, very accessible and very workable derivative of the same
You didn't know that....no harm done. But your posts suggested you were saying the NAP is diametrically opposed to the very systems on which it was based. You can't blame people for picking you up on it. And NO ONE bagged you for it.
It's sort of like saying Americans should stick to speaking "American" and not draw on other languages such as English. It just doesn't make sense since they are one and the same with some slight variances. Does that make sense?
I guess your mistake was assuming this was a beginners board. I am less experienced than the guys I learn from here...but this not the board for people who do not have a vast library and a voracious appetite for knowledge and therefore spend a great deal of time studying and applying their knowledge.
Lets be completely honest here...your second last post does not bespeak of one approaching fifty years of age. Dude.
