„The Magician must be wary in his use of his powers; he must make every act not only accord with his Will, but with the properties of his position at the time.“

—  Aleister Crowley poet, mountaineer, occultist 1875 - 1947
Context: The Magician must be wary in his use of his powers; he must make every act not only accord with his Will, but with the properties of his position at the time. It might be my Will to reach the foot of a cliff; but the easiest way — also the speediest, most direct least obstructed, the way of minimum effort — would be simply to jump. I should have destroyed my Will in the act of fulfilling it, or what I mistook for it; for the True Will has no goal; its nature being To Go. Appendix VI : A few principal rituals – Liber Reguli.
