"Jay, the first two chapters of your book on the gift and three levels basically lay out your own model of how magick works. If models are always limiting, why did you present one?"
The short answer is: my model doesnt suck.
The long answer is that there is nothing inherently wrong with models of magick or spirituality as long as they are treated as something that is a work in progress and are updated to fit data. My model of three levels, is not really a model of how magic works; its a model of how magic works best. It is designed specifically to get people to expand, rather than contract their view of how to work magick.
