|MAGICK 1 -- WHY MAGICK
The ability to think seems to set us apart from other creatures. And although we
are concerned with living in the physical world, we are mental beings. The fact is
we are thinking all the time. We plan, we brood, we get depressed or elated -- all
of it is thought. But the universe is mental too, and if we could control our thinking
we would see magnificent results in the everyday world.
Many systems have been developed over the ages to help us control our thoughts.
A great amound of dogma too has been kicked around in an attempt to make us
into better people. Magick (the occult kind, spelled with a 'k') is one of the oldest
and most general of these systems.Magick is the study and application of psychic
forces. It uses mental training, concentration, and a system of symbols to program
the mind. The purpose of magick is to alter the self and the environment according
to the will.
Most of the magick we see today comes to us from ancient Egypt and Chaldea.
The Chinese, Hindus, and Tibetans developed their own unique types of magick.
Western magick was locked up by the Egyptian priests for thousands of years and
then supressed by the rise of Christianity. It was not until medieval Europe that
magical knowledge was rediscovered by the alchemists and Cabalists. Only during
the past hundred years or so has western culture been open minded enough to
permit widespread investigation of the subject. Only since the start of the twentieth
century has science shown much interest in it all.
