There is a certain Occult Maxim that states, `Nature unaided fails.'
If taken at face value and if Nature is interpreted as correlated to
Mother Nature or the Earth and all her species, many including myself
would tend to disagree with this great Occult Maxim. It is one of my
personal beliefs that Nature, as defined above, as opposed to failing
if unaided actually thrives when not `aided' by humans. Nature will
find a way to survive. Ever see grass growing up through a
sidewalk? A blade of grass somehow gets through solid concrete, how
is that possible? If left alone without human interference Nature
would even take back control of our largest urban areas. Apparently
that is actually happening right now in parts of Detroit. Nature is
thriving all on its own.
So if the Maxim is not really talking about Nature as in Mother
Earth, to what then does the Maxim refer? Could it be Human Nature?
If the Maxim does actually mean human nature to what part of human
nature does it refer? Could it be our Subconscious? If so, is it
really possible for our subconscious to fail? Our subconscious
produces that which we, through the messages and images we inundate
it with, desire. Our subconscious does everything in its power,
which is quite vast, to give us that for which we have asked. The
problem many people face, whether realized or not, is that we are
sending messages and images to our subconscious that actually work
against that for which we are striving. In that respect, I do not
believe the subconscious can actually fail.
We may say, for example, I want to lose weight. Our goal in turn
becomes to lose weight. What happens if we do not actually perform
some physical actions such as diet and exercise? We should not
expect to lose weight while continuing to do nothing to bring about
the desired result, some action is required. If, on the other hand,
we do perform the required physical and mental actions and send these
messages and images to our subconscious it will in turn focus its
power to help bring about our desired goal. Once the subconscious
and conscious minds are working in conjunction rather than opposed to
each other, the desired goal will begin to manifest.
What then does this all mean? At least in part to me it means, that
to bring about the desired result we must aid our subconscious mind
through the use of images and symbols and action to bring
subconscious and conscious into alignment. We must get our
subconscious and conscious minds working together. Once conscious
and subconscious are focused on the same goal and if that focus is
maintained that goal can be achieved. In the end I agree with Occult
Maxim, `Nature Unaided Fails' to bring about our desired result.
