The central question of Contemplative Sorcery is, “Who are you?” Extensions of that question are, “Who were you?” and, “Who are you becoming?” as well as, “Who do you really want to be?”
These are not easy questions to answer, but they’re important. If you don’t know who you are, you’ll have sloppy boundaries both practically and magically and that leaves you open for exploitation on both the physical and metaphysical layers of existence.
This is why I encourage people to explore personality frameworks such as the MBTI and the Enneagram. Not because they are 100% accurate (nothing really is) or fixed (though pop psychology would tell you they are), but because they give you a framework for defining yourself, and that’s very, very useful in magic.
So who are you?
