Transcript: As we will cover in greater detail later, I believe there are 4 primary causes of individuation:
Naturally, you will mature with age, but it doesn’t mean that you will individuate because this is a process of reaching your potential. What an open-ended concept - your potential… What is that? No one can really say… perhaps not even you because I seriously doubt you have even begun to push the limits.
I recall the words of a mentor I once had, “Michael, you’re going to find that most of the people you encounter are dying of terminal potential… chose wisely.”
As you mature along this path, you’re going to find that you begin to encounter your unique, latent abilities and this somehow ties into your biggest fears and most secret pain, and together these lead you to your primary purpose… It isn’t magick, it has just always been there in the stars waiting for you to keep moving forward toward it. And as you’re progressing, maturing, individuating, you’ll find that you begin to gain perspective on both your life and the lives of others. You learn new things from old lessons and have the capacity to do difficult things just for the sake of learning and improving yourself.
Much of life goes back to your ability to manage controlled failure. If a little kid can play a video game for 10 hours straight, using biofeedback to train his neurology to respond appropriately so that he can level up his character then you can also retrain your mind and body to respond appropriately in real life scenarios that actually matter. Once again, this is the importance and relevance of controlled failure…. Every thing you want requires that you pass over the threshold of potential failure and rejection. The more you do this, the more you train your neurology to respond advantageously to your environment, and because learning is associative, your learnings adapt and spread into other areas of your life.
