How many posts does a ‘non-mage’ have to read before they qualify to ‘be’ a mage
One of my friends in college ran a student-taught class on the history of magick. Everything from Pythagoras to the Rosicrucians to Crowley to Chaos Magick. We was better-read as a freshman than I am today. But only ever read. He never actually did magick.
To answer Kol: Reading doesn’t make you a mage any more than watching baseball makes you an athlete. What makes you a mage is awakening your ethereal muscles and altering the world. There is no substitute for doing the work.
The natural next question is, “How do I do that?” The answer will be coming soon, in part 2 of the initiation. But remember: Those answers are only useful if you actually do the magick. Reading is the easy part.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
