Because I can to help myself and others
Agreed , friend...:)
Humans as a whole, that's all of us, do magic all the time, but we do it unconsciously. However, it's part of growing up and being an adult, from a species standpoint, to take conscious charge of originally unconscious behavior. It's better to do magic purposefully with intent than to unintentionally project it without understanding.
I honestly think in a past life I was a Magi in Egypt or Nubia and my soul yearns for Magick in my life since its already experienced it. So many things point to this for me but this was an interesting question.
Witchcraft is useful as a teaching tool...that if we put forth the effort (intention) we may be rewarded...its like writing a letter and receiving an answer; planting a seed & watching it grow...if you do good works you may be rewarded sooner than not. If your a kitchen witch your nurturing will be evident daily...and an honor it is to cook & feed the mass at Holy Days!
First , Mary , I shall define some things to answer you :
Magic = Change By Both Desire And Need
Mgieck = Ancient Faery Tradition
Magick = Sex + To Bring Forth
The third spelling also has to do with tapping into the
Telluric Current , to affect change , through Sex , thus
why Crowley used the spelling...and why his Boleskine
House was on the edge of Loch Ness , close to a major
network of ley lines...
Now , in my ancient Faery Tradition , these two words
from our language have the same gematria value :
Wietchcrreayafth = 682
Theaantherrea = 682
( Witchcraft and Tantra , today )
Yet , among those who know , in India and other old cultures ,
the Old Tantra , *was* Witchcraft...
So I use the Ancient Faery Tradition , of Mgieck , to affect
Change , By Desire And Need , using Sex , among other methods ,
to Bring Forth the reality most applicable to the situation at the time...;)
It's better to ask why not. But I understand your point.
Because it's the natural thing to do. To not would be un-natural.
I felt called to it, this feels more natural and true to myself then other forms of religious expression and practice. Im much happier with a nature centered spirit focused practice then i was before.
My answer: to bring about change through my will.
Sciencey answer: psycho drama, psychology
I only do magic when I need help and don't see any other way to get the help I need.
It's not a game or something I have 'fun' with. You all know what comes from dabbling.
Dabble , Dabble , Psychobabble ,
Add Some Herbs , And Stir The Rabble ,
Gods And Spirits I Call And Foment ,
I Raise The Dead By Focused Intent ,
Not That I Need You Just Wanted To Ask
You All To Help Me With This Task ,
Not For Some Increase Or Deficit ,
Just Call It A Spell For The Hell Of It !
Yeah...can piss somebody off on the Otherside...;)
