Second Step:

Modulation 1: "Necessity" - The inexperienced Apprentice will embark on any endeavor. The
experienced Magician is guided by Necessity in his actions. Necessity is Ancient Measure.
Measure older than Love and even Truth. Necessity is the determining factor when the Magician
should decide on an issue. Necessity determines what should happen. What is not determined by
Necessity awaits failure. Necessity is a regulator and catalyst of the Impulse - it tames the Impulses
that do not lead to something really necessary and directs and gives direction to the Impulses that
are generated by the Necessity. In this step, the experienced Magician performs a kind of "strategic
review". This is the moment when the inexperienced will concentrate on the detail, will look at the
tree, but will not see the forest. Necessity requires that the Adept-Magician be able to capture the
whole picture. The whole forest. In this step, it is decided whether the Impuls will continue or
should be stopped (ignored). This step corresponds to the Eagle's Wide View method.

Third Step:

Proto Element Intention: "Sunrise" - In this step the Magician receives Clarity about the Object
of the Magic Act. He defines his goal and clarifies in which direction to go to continue the Impulse.
Here appears the "line" of Intention connecting the Adept and the Object of Intention. The Path is
outlined. We have seen the "Home" of the Object in the distance. We have also seen the Path that
leads there and we have taken action. A typical mistake of the inexperienced Apprentice in this
step would be that once he saw the "Home" in the distance, he would rush headlong towards it
without looking at the terrain he is about to cross. This Path can often be full of hidden traps and
other dangers. Seeing the goal does not automatically mean achieving it. If we see a fish in the sea,
it does not mean that we have already caught it. The inexperienced Apprentice will say to himself:
“Done! I saw the target! Forward! ” The experienced Magician will say to himself: “I saw the
Object`s "Home". I have Clarity about it. Let me now review what I have missed to see and what
Path I can actually take to reach this goal.” This step corresponds to the Eagle's Piercing Eye

Fourth Step:

Modulation 2: “The Key” - In this step, we are in front of the Door of the House of the Object of
the Magic Act. The Door is often locked, so we have to choose our Approach in what way we will
enter the Home. Here we should choose the right Principle, find the right Key that will give us
access to the House of the Object. It is important to say that if we slow down too much, the
momentum that has given us the stimulus to move forward may subside and we may lose our
initiative. If the Impulse calms down, as a consequence we will lose our Clarity and our Energy
will slip away without being able to flow forward properly and thus will be exhausted. This is how
many inexperienced Apprentices end up - they have a strong impulse to do something, but they
have no formal training, they do not know the Principles of Magic Art and therefore they do not
have Keys. They can only knock on the Door and hope it will open by itself. That is why many
Apprentices will say that sometimes their "spells" work and other times they don't. In this step the
so-called "Synchronization" is made - synchronization between the Principles, the Strategy, and
the Magic Approach. Only then they are finding the right Key to the correct Door. This is a
fundamentally important point. It is no coincidence that the first part of this book sequence is The
