Magic is the art of changing consciousness at will.
When we practice magic we are always making connections, moving energy, identifying with other forms of being. Magic could be called the applied science that is made on an understanding of how energy makes patterns and patterns direct energy. To put it another way, at it’s heart is a paradox:
Consciousness shapes reality;
Reality shapes consciousness…
Magic is art – that is, it has to do with forms, with structures, with images that can shift us out of the limitations imposed by our culture, in a way that words alone cannot, with visions that hint at possibilities of fulfillment, not offered by the empty word.
And magic is will – action, directed energy, choices made, not once but many times, as this writing is an act of will as well as art made up of hundreds of thousand of small decisions, of the choice, made over and over again to sit down at the PC and do it instead of the infinity of other things life offers…
2.) Göttin oder warum Göttin?
The Goddess is not one image but many – a constellation of forms and associations – earth, air, fire, water, moon and stars, sun, flower and seed, willow and apple, black, red, white, Maiden, Mother, and Crone.
She includes the male in her aspects: He becomes child and Consort, stag and bull, grain and reaper, ligth and dark. Yet the femaleness of the Goddess is primary not to denigrate the male but because it represents bringing life into the world, valuing the world.
The Goddess, The Mother as symbol of the value, tells us that the world itself is the content of the world, its true value, its heart, and its soul.
The image oft he Goddess strikes at the roots of estrangement.(Entfremdung)
True value is not found in some heaven, some abstract otherworld, but in female bodies and their offspring, female and male; in nature; and in the world…
Let us be clear that when I say Goddess I am not talking about a being somewhere outside of this world, nor am I proposing a new belief system. I am talking about choosig an attitude: choosing to take this living world, the people and creatures on it, as the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, to see the world, the earth, and our lives as sacred.
To say something is sacred, is to say that we respect, cherish, and value it for its own being.
Healing means becoming whole, a unique, powerful, aware, fulfilled person. Healing means becoming the main characters in our own life stories – heras and heroes. It means living passionately, creatively, and joyfully.
To feel „the joy of being alive“
