Make yourself invisible. Don the cloak of Invisibility. Even the smallest selfless acts are magical acts. Go out into the world and make a difference. Make this lifetime really matter.” ~ The 64 Ways

Lack is the problem facing the shadow of pride. Lack is fundamentally a "whole-world" perspective that rejects abundance or the light side. At a deep unconscious level, we are in survival mode if we think there are never enough resources to go around.

* Where are you living from a sense of lack?

Think about everything, including your relationships, finances, career, and diet. Ask yourself: Where am I fooling myself? What simple act of kindness may I perform for someone else today?

* Will you be remembered as a giver, or a taker by Cosmic Intelligence?

Consider your highest potential: Know that you can do anything you put your heart, mind and will towards.

*Ask: What is my greatest Gift of Artfulness? How can I use it to make a positive and lasting difference for this world?

* Breathe the breath of the Buddha into your heart.

He or she is beyond time and space, beyond past and future. The magus is eternal, and omnipresent. The magus is within each of us, invisible, waiting, always waiting
