So, I have a question and I would like your input and your opinions.
I just discovered magic maybe a year or so ago. It might be two years at this point. Anyway, before that I never knew there was really a such thing as magic outside of Harry Potter fantasy books. Based on my Googling I accidentally stumbled upon this website and the website of a pretty legit ceremonial magician. Sometimes you read something and you just know it’s legit. That’s what happened. So then I became curious if magic is truly as real as you guys say it is. I’ve been following both for the past two years just reading and trying to understand what exactly you guys are into.
Then the most ironic and crazy thing happened.
This past week I received an email from the newsletter associated with this website. In the newsletter, E.A. Koetting mentions, “In addition to daily meditation…if I encounter people who might need a little boost, I’ll send them magickal boosts without them ever knowing about it…”
That seems awfully kind…
In the same week, I received a YouTube video from the other magician who warnes against baneful magick and claims to not use it. In this video, he talks about how you might harm someone using Bible verses but it’s not baneful magick because you’re asking God to do it and you’re not the one actually doing it.
Seems pretty mess up to inflict harm on people regardless of how you do it… whether you curse a person or petition God to do, it would still suck… and it causes harm so is that not baneful magick?
I’m sure it’s for good reason and all…
But my point is. What exactly makes someone a left-hand magician? So far, the newsletters I’ve been receiving associated with this webpage have been pretty cool and rather thought provoking. I thought that the difference was good vs evil or something… but that doesn’t seem to be right. Because I see all kinds of people looking out for each other on here and allegedly trying to help one another… and then I see this guy trying to teach me how to like hex someone or something using the Bible.
So is the difference the means? Is someone a left-handed magician because they work with demons? No matter if they never harm anyone? I guess I’m just looking for some insight because as a newcomer who pretty much knows nothing about real magic… seems to me like all of the magician’s I have witnessed are just like regular humans in the sense that there is a continuum of good and bad within each individual. If that’s true then what determines what side you are on? How do you guys define it?
