I 've noticed as I get more and more into my own path and take more interest in the darker side of the magical path, that I tend to try to justify anything I do, think of doing or want to do with it. For example money I think can be justified by a need to pay bills, and get out of debts and I make sure it’s clear why that is needed for the greater good. I need people out of my life and I make sure it’s clear to myself at least exactly WHY they need to be out of it. I realize that even here on these boards I make it clear that I need a result for a morally decent reason. Yet at the same time on the same boards we have members who seem to have called on powerful demons to go and destroy an enemy, and these members don’t seem to need to justify it fully.
I’m not saying this is bad of course. Quite the opposite. I find this darker side fascinating and powerful and promising. Perhaps the right words here would be… alluring. I feel like I might not know how to approach this far more left handed path. Am I being too kind, to considerate, too concerned with making sure I harm none? Are “because I can?” or “because I want it?” or “because I deserve an advantage of won in life,” really the only justifications anyone needs?
I’m curious here about your views and opinions of this. How are things justified? Do we need to bother to justify a damn thing?
