You found my old blog. Thanks for visiting! For my new writing, visit mikesententia.com.
From a friend’s magick class:
- White magick is about finding the way of the world, and working with it.
- Black magick is about doing whatever it takes to get power. Stealing energy, blood magick, sacrifice, etc.
Those aren’t perfect definitions. That’s ok. You get the gist.
It got me thinking: Science is an entirely different paradigm.
Science is about understanding the way of the world, like white magick.
Then we use that understanding to control the world, like black magick.
When you do energy healing, you’re aiming to influence nerves and other cells, causing them to behave differently than normal.
When you create luck, you’re influencing events, and more skill means fewer unwanted side-effects.
I don’t think the answer is to fear power. I think the answer is to develop as much control over the world as we can, and then use it for something worth doing.
And fortunately, blood sacrifice and stealing energy aren’t required (or even useful) to develop that control.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
