Slogging Through Liber III

Postby Cygnus » Wed Jul 09, 2014 5:29 pm

So I've been at Liber III for almost 2 years now, using rubber band or "marking myself with a pen" methods as I work in corporate environments.

I've spent about 10 months each on sections 1.i and 1.ii; haven't gotten to 1.iii yet. My best "score" is 1-2 slips a week. I can consistently hit that. But still, I'll slip.

My question is: How much is enough? (Specifically for 3=8 level mastery.) Crowley recommends practices last for a week or more in Liber III, and then for the grade states "He shall attain complete success in Liber III, Cap. I." Does that mean 0 slips for each section, i-iii, over the course of a week each?

Thank you for any insight anyone can offer!
Rabbits, hats.

1-2 slips a week is fantastic.

I'm not sure what "change you" means. Some would argue that you can never "change you," you can only change the outward appearance of you. Behaviorists would argue that once a personality is formed, it is unchanging, or that at the very least the "core belief structure" of the personality does not change "without a traumatic cause."

What the practices of Liber III (and other practices) do is teach. They may teach you something about your nature, human nature, abilities, and your belief structure regarding the world you live in.

As Jim loves to say, your mileage may vary.
