Mr Spencer’s scones are legendary. Their ingredients are mixed in such perfect harmony that eating them obliterates all the obstacles to love that exist within one’s soul.

Jason Miller's Strategic Sorcery offer of Financial Hands conjure bags

 

“I have once again created a set of financial hands for sale. These are special conjure bags that are in the grip of gator claws. I have been offering these once a year or so for several years, and they have helped a lot of people draw money, obtain employment, get promoted, start businesses and so on. In the past I have offered a Red and Green design for either fast action or longer term work. This is the first time, and maybe the only time, that I am offering the Black Series.

These are not evil, but they are wrathful. They will work for you no matter what. They will kick ass and take names, and not let anyone or anything stand in the way of your success.

They are the perfect conjure hand for the fiscal apocalypse.” [via]

“Just a note that there are still seven Black Series Financial Hands left.

Someone asked me what I meant by “wrathful” in relation to these conjure hands. There are three qualities that play a role here.

1. Wrath is action: It is more active than other types of magic that approach it from a more peaceful perspective. You could use the word forceful or ruthless as well as wrath.
2. Outer Obstacles: If there are people keeping you from your goal, the hand will work to remove them.
3. Inner Obstacle: If your bad habits, weaknesses, and propensity for inaction are keeping you from realizing your goals the hand will do what it can to kick you in the pants. It won’t hurt you, and it won’t kill anyone, but it will shake things up.” [via]

The Deeper Symbolism of Freemasonry from The Meaning of Masonry by Walter Leslie Wilmshurst.

“Upon self-scrutiny, too, i.e., upon entering into that ‘porchway’ of contemplation which like a winding staircase leads inward to the Holy of Holies within himself, he realizes that difficulties and obstacles placed in his way are utilised by the Eternal Wisdom as the necessary means of developing the latent and potential good in him, and that as the rough ashlar can only be squared and perfected by chipping and polishing, so he also can be made perfect only by toil and by suffering.” [via]

“Independence”, Chapter IV of Patanjali’s Yoga Aphorisms in Swami Vivekananda’s Raja Yoga

“Good and bad deeds are not the direct causes in the transformations of nature, but they act as breakers of obstacles to the evolutions of nature: as a farmer breaks the obstacles to the course of water, which then runs down by its own nature.” [via]
