Archive for Thursday 25th April 2002 - Black and White Magic

Black magic helps you to trick people and take advantage of them by underhand means. You may think you are doing well by it, but you cannot avoid the comeuppance. It affects your looks and character, and you end up as a monster, cut off from human sympathies.

True magic is for your own happiness and the benefit of everyone around you. First it transforms you and then it changes the world. One of the first exercises in magical training is to put aside grievances and visualise your surroundings as a type of paradise. If you try it, you will soon glimpse the purpose of magic to bring back that natural, but long-forgotten state of existence, the Golden Age.

In ancient, magical times, whole nations were held in a state of enchantment. In the relics of stone-age Britain you can see the instruments by which the spell was maintained. People lived simply, in thatched huts together with their animals. All their skills and efforts were devoted to the huge structures of earth and stone by which they kept in contact with the dead and with the gods. With constant festivals, music, dancing and story-telling, their lives were made rich. They knew nothing of prisons or palaces, but were happy and secure and in need of nothing.

Nowadays, of course, everything seems different. But this world is as magical as ever, once you start seeing it like that.
