is for the times you are scared to go directly after what you want.
By accident I opened my copy of E. Nietzsche’s Will to Power. By coincidence the first fragment I saw was this: “What is evil? Three things: chance, uncertainty, suddenness”. (My copy not being in English nor German I’m finding it hard to pinpoint this frase for reference).
Evil is three things: chance, uncertainty, suddenness. Both housewife, reading “her” weekly horoscope on the back of a gossip magazie and politician following the dictates of his economic haruspiscators are engaging in basicly the same activity: reduction of randomness via magic.
The first observation I want to make about magick is how muddled the thinking of most people who engage in it is. Recently I was to translate this fragment from Ted Andrew’s “Animal-Speak”. I had much grief working on this pseudo-thinking.
Now, not all books about magick are this lacking. (I’ll discuss the great ones at a later date). But most are. Visit any thematic bookstore and you will find out for yourself.
I sometimes feel guilty because of my indulgence in this hobby. Where is my intellect?
In order to give some focus to this blog (and to my thinking) I’ve decided to explore the concept of magic in a series of posts. Now, I’m not a practitioner, although I did and do dabble. Hopefully, as I clarify my thinking about the topic, I will either be able to lie aside my superstitious behaviors or, conversely, empower my practice.
