I can focus and complete task. I’ve read other books to completion in only a few hours. I utilize the mundane knowledge that has been gathered over the years. I can focus on projects that are easily completed within a few hours.
However, something happens that creates a scratch in the groove, causing the needle-like focus to skip onto the next whatever when I work on long-term, high-focus projects. In my case, most of these projects are practicing magickal operations. Rituals, meditations, etc. Writing also seems to get lost. In truth, as I look at the clock, I’m minutes from getting interrupted again. And I know that I’m not the only one who suffers from this syndrome.
I have noticed that metaphysical work seems to be a catalyst for distractors. The more I attempt to do ritual, the more people seem to need my expertise in the mundane work that has become instinctual through repetitive use. Even worse they want to socialize (shudder) when I’m almost finished, and the thought is lost. I do have good boundaries but being rude isn’t acceptable either. Where is the balance I crave?
I would like to say that I have a solution, but that would be a lie. Writing ideas down only works when pen and paper are available and then only if I can read my writing at a later time that never comes, if my stack of notepads and journals is any indication.
I can only remember to look for the magick in the mundane. We live in a world filled with magickal occurrences, should one actually take the time to see, feel, and hear them instead of marginalizing the experiences in what I feel is the ultimate cumulation of MADS.
