Bro, why not throw these paradigms out and just do your own thing. Despite how much people will exclaim the greatness of their particular path, most are stuck using magick within the same mediocrity mindframe that they are actually trying to evolve from. So power doesn’t necessarily guarantee an upgrade in your perspective of the nature of reality, and I have yet to actually see how “white magick” is more restrictive when viewed without the psychotraumas related to religion. The fact that folks write books about white magick, and practice white magick with these particular psychotraumas in tact shows just how much this actually comes through. In the same facet, black magick can be extremely restrictive, and there seems to loads of contracts a person can lock themselves down in with these practices. Blood sacrifice, offerings to beings that are immaterial on this plane, altars… it’s the same shit with a different appeal.
This is why I say to people: stop reading books. You cannot find a manual to ascension reading books, and there is so much conflicting info, with validity and weaknesses abound, that it should be obvious that you trust your intuition first and foremost. The books can give you general theory and info, but beyond that, what you will come up with is just as valid as anything else. Many shamanic cultures literally just give folks the road map to power, and whatever the person does is up to them. I have to ask Titan though, knowing what practices you do now… what are the difficulties you are having? What about evocatory magick has you feeling like it will help you more than what you have on your plate already? I know what you have available to you, so what about evocation is making you feel it can give you a missing piece?
