I want to talk about energy. Not magickal energy, but the kind of energy you spend exercising.
I’m moving to San Francisco, apartment hunting this week. I probably walked 10 miles between yesterday and today. That’s after walking roughly 0 miles for the past… rest of my life. I’m exhausted.
And I’m realizing how much magick is a luxury of modern times. Because it’s only in the past couple hundred years that you could come home from work and not be exhausted. Before that, it would only have been the upper classes who would even have the leftover energy to study any of this.
The Internet is awesome. I wouldn’t be talking with any of you without it. But at its heart, what magick study takes is leftover physical energy. And that, I think, really is a luxury of modern times.

Short post today. Because I’m exhausted. If you want more to read, you should all check out Jason’s great response about magick for enlightenment. I’ll reply to it soon. And to those of you that emailed me, it was great to hear from you, and I’ll reply tomorrow.
