After careful research and studies regarding the process's that come into drawing circles, one may ask why go thru all the process's of calling elements and angels when it can be done by a simple sign or word. Let's face it calling Elementals and corners in a sitch can take time and sometimes when you have that spirit bothering you or that person throwing the evil eye your way, there is not enough time to protect yourself when it really counts.
The solution to this problem is to draw one circle and attach it to a piece of jewelry or ring, or even store it in the astral with a code word that you can say that opens it in times of need or whenever you just feel like throwing down a quick ritual on your break at work. Let's face it we are all people who have lives and our space should be sacred at all times, because why walk on corrupted ground when it can be clean all the time. That will cut down on negative entities coming into your space when you don't want them too. With the on call circle method there would be no need to call another corner or elemental again. And if you are so inclined you can draw the circle into a sigil and keep it in your pocket for even easier means if you don't want it tied to your jewelry.
Your forum post is similar to Lady Shadow's recent blog post. King-of-sort-of anyways.
Lady Shadow: I Am My Circle
I can recall some years ago an inventor came up with a `pop up plastic Altar` so Pagans living in today's fast pace world would not have to take the physical time up in setting up an Altar to the Gods?
That idea fell flat on its face, and rightly so, if we wish to commune with the Gods, then a little of what we can offer in reality and respect, is the time taken to create that circle, and address the Gods and the elementals in a respectful and decent way.
Todays folk want everything now, now, now at a push of a button, or swipe of an app.
Yeah, what happened to foreplay?
Sadly its become an `App` somewhere to be found among taking a selfie and completing the act of union?
Newfangled fancy kids and their iAltars and whatnot; back in my day we had to travel uphill, both ways, to the altar...
Teachers’ Conference, 1703
Students today can’t prepare bark to calculate their problems. They depend upon their slates which are more expensive. What will they do when the slate is dropped and it breaks? They will be unable to write!
Principals Association, 1815
Students today depend upon paper too much. They don’t know how to write on a slate without getting chalk dust all over themselves. They can’t clean a slate properly. What will they do when they run out of paper?
National Association of Teachers, 1907
Students today depend too much upon ink. They don’t know how to use a pen knife to sharpen a pencil. Pen and ink will never replace the pencil!
The Rural American Teacher, 1929
Students today depend upon store bought ink. They don’t know how to make their own. When they run out of ink they will be unable to write words or ciphers until their next trip to the settlement. This is a sad commentary on modern education.
PTA Gazette, 1941
Students today depend upon these expensive fountain pens. They can no longer write with a straight pen and nib (not to mention sharpening their own quills). We parents must not allow them to wallow in such luxury to the detriment of learning how to cope in the real business world, which is not so extravagant.
Federal Teachers, 1950
Ballpoint pens will be the ruin of education in Our Country. Students use these devices and then throw them away! The American virtues of thrift and frugality are being discarded. Businesses and banks will never allow such expensive luxuries.
I love Googling stuff like this to give people some perspective :) These were on Reddit, but can be found on Quote Investigator.
