Welcome to a wee bit a Magick
everything on these pages are my personal views.
for entertainment purposes only.
yes, I believe what I have written.
my 'job' is to believe and learn, not to convert others.
"The mystical theme of the space is this: the world, as we know it, is coming to an end. The world as the center of the universe, the world divided from the heavens, the world bound by horizons in which love is reserved for members of the in group: that is the world that is passing away. Apocalypse does not point to a fiery Armageddon but to the fact that our ignorance and our complacency are coming to an end." ---Joseph Campbell This is a quote from chapter 1 of "Exploring Inner and Outer Space" by Brian O'Leary, Ph. D., who was a NASA scientist-astronaut.
Do I believe in magick? Absolutely! Magick is all around us, and in us. Magick is energy, everything is made up of energy. Even the universe. I know some people don't believe that. That is their opinion, to which they are entitled. As am I. I have a habit of asking my higher self many questions, but I also ask various Gods and the Universe. This is usually how I get answers. Am I a Christian? No. Have I ever been? You bet. I was a lot less tolerant, then. Any religion should be tolerant. But they aren't. Doesn't matter, each person must walk the path he/she chose, or the path that was chosen for him/her and that they agreed to be on. Now, I believe we all find our own way. And regardless of whether you're a Pagan or Christian, Shaman, Muslim, Wiccan, whatever...you go for it. We all need something/someone to believe in. Most of us give our power over to something/someone else. This way, they can get the blame if things don't work out the way we want it too. Not to mention, if we screw up...well hey! it's not our fault. (laughing) This is why we have so many gods and goddesses. Even if we don't believe in them, they believe in us. Actually, everything that exists, exists inside our awareness. If we aren't aware of it, for all intents and purposes, it doesn't exist. If you are unconscious, you aren't aware of anything, so nothing exists at that time. This is pretty much what a person's belief system is: The sum total of all the experiences you've ever had... all you've thought about yourself and those experiences... and all anyone has ever told you about yourself and them. After all, like I said, this is just my opinion. So, please don't bother trying to change my mind. If you wish to contribute to my knowledge, you're welcome too; but I'm not going to change my belief system. So don't even try. Stubborn? Probably, but at least I admit it. I don't claim to be the 'know all and be all' on the subject. We would all be hurting if I was. We all perceive everything in our own ways. We all learn in our own way, and in our own time. I know that much..been there, done that. What is true for me, might not be true for you. This too is ok. I'm here to learn, just as you are. Seems to me like we don't learn very well at times. Takes us so long that by the end of it, we're like..what the hell was that all about? Patience and attitude will go a long way in achieving anything. Focus on that which you desire. As you focus, you may feel a build up of energy. When you have gotten to the point where you can hold no more energy, let it go out to the universe with a heartfelt desire that it be granted. The more you focus, the sooner it will appear in your life. But focus on that which you want as if you already had it, not the lack itself. Whatever you focus your attention on, that is what you draw to yourself.
Now a few words about the 'wiccan rede'. It says "an it harm none, do as ye will", however, since I am part of this universe, this means that I'm not supposed to let someone harm me either. And if you think for one minute, that I will...you have another thing coming. No one should let another person harm them, we should all respect ourselves enough to protect ourselves. An example: if someone breaks in and is intent on doing you harm, will you let them get away with it or shoot them to stop the perpetrator? Me, I'm gonna shoot. Am I gonna feel bad about it? Hell no. I feel bad that they care so little for the rights of others, that they think they have no other way of getting what they want. But if they are intent on harming me, and they get hurt in the process, then I think they got what they deserved. Sometimes karma doesn't make us wait. Where do these people get these ideas? You might well ask. I find that by asking I get an answer. Maybe it's really my higher self. Maybe it's the universe. I like to call them 'my people.' As long as they don't mind, I will call them that...if they mind they will so inform me. At which time, I will call them something else.
