I’m kinda torn between Magick being nothing more then a “means to an end” - while I pursue creative writing more successfully (ie writing empowered by Magick), and magick "having to be this SIGNIFICANT part of your day and how you spend your time/focus/ energy.
I like knowing I can get whatever I want- BUT most ppl here make it sound like you have to be a " Career Magician " just to get anywhere with this stuff. I know you dont , I know its all belief- and will- and focus- and trust-
But sometimes I let myself get sideswiped by a conversation that deepens and complexifies, what I thought was simple and strraight forward.
Thoroughly researching the history of an entity before you evoke/ invoke it may seem like a fun necessary part of the process, but to me it sounds like learning physics before I use the microwave.
So in other words its seems (as I’ve always sensed over the years) that ignorance is an asset to Magick, that what ever increases Will, Focus, Trust, Belief, is all that matters, and anything that splinters or diffuses or (what’s the opposite of ejaculate?) those things ought to be disavowed.
Can you be “serious” about Magick, and ascend exasperately, while only letting it take up a small part of your day?
Don’t some great magicians like great writers spend half their “work time” simply “living Magickally/ Creatively” ?
