- Do not be overly sexual.  Sexual activity twice a month is considered a safe maximum that allows spiritual progress to go mostly unhampered, presuming it is performed as an expression of love.  Masturbation is strictly forbidden for someone who wants real success.  Celibacy is always the most effective choice when it is realistic.
- If you are a particularly sexual-minded person, then avoid the company of the opposite sex.


You know, this could be difficult for some people my age (meaning 18. Young.)

It could actually be difficult for anyone older than 15 years. Being in relationship and having sex twice a month is a good way to get your partner cheating on you, btw.

Dragoon, if you want to make some sense out of your research, I would avoid Prophecy's articles for now, at first you have to develop a special learning faculty which will filter ANY magick related papers into this:
*BLAH BLAH BLAH*, *TAKE WITH GRAIN OF SALT*, *BLAH, BLAH*, GOOD INFORMATION, *BLAH*.

Nice and simple, learn to divide information you get into following categories:
- great information
- not so great, but with a couple of tweaks I can get something out of it
- useless (either because of traditional or functional aspects).

If you want to study something more ready for you, I can only recommend to take a look at the Theories, Articles and Philosophy section, there are a couple of articles written by me.

Prophecy's stuff is great if you want to follow HIS path and does HIS stuff. It is by all mean not the only path out there. An it is not the greatest path. It is easy to become a magician, just practice magick.

Actually Prophecy's stuff is a bit misleading. I don't say it is wrong, just not totally correct...

Well to me is shows a long inconsideration to other paths, basically in a way it calls them weak. Which is something that is not correct.

Yup, that's one of the problems.

Another could be in the gayatri mantra, which is commonly written as:
Om, bhur buwah suwahah, (om) tatsavitur varyenyam. Bhargo dewasyah dimahih.
Diyoh yoh nah prachodayateh.

And translated as:
Om, we meditate on the infinite being that created this universe, may He enlighten our minds.

But we cannot forget about sanskrt origin of the mantra which makes it hard to rewrite into latin alphabet and also there are multiple possible translations, so Prophecy's version isn't incorrect, it is just incomplete. "Om", which Prophecy translates as "God" also has multiple meanings and quite frankly, "God" is rather western translation, originally was Om viewed as a divine syllable, vibrating through all the matter and higher forms.

And the list could go on :)

Your smarter than me man. All I do is concentrate on magickal doodles :P. Have this stuff could be written in plain speak and I still couldn't wrap my mind around it. That has always been one of my problems. I do so enjoy simple instructions and simple paths. Cuts down on the mind clutter.

It's not about smartness, opposite might be truth. I guess I caused some mental retardation to myself by reading too much Crowley :D

I would trust Prophecy. He is humble and hard on himself. Just as Bardon's description of a magician.
