Lecture 1, Basic Precepts
The basic precepts of the craft of the wise form a consistent unity that places the responsibility for living a meaningful life firmly on the shoulders of the individual. The ultimate Deity is not responsible for the day to day running of your life. Instead of blaming IT or a stone goddess for the mess you're in, then, you will acknowledge that your own efforts will complete the learning assignment you excepted at the beginning of the present incarnation. If you need natural magical help, you can work for that too. The reality you live in is or at least in your partial control, so you can influence it to improve your lot.
