Faith and Self
SymbolsMagick is an area in which things are easily taken for granted by people. Both the skeptics and those who believe and practice often have the mindset that in magick things don't have to obey logic, don't need nor correspond to an explanation and just *are*. However, that has never been my approach, neither to magick nor to any other area of spirituality. As a rule, things that lack explanation disturb me because that lack shows either a lapse in my understanding or that things are misunderstood by everyone altogether. In my opinion, everything spiritual is just as logical as everything else in the Universe and likewise can be explained scientifically, be it even by branches of science unknown or shunned by modern humanity. Fortunately the reluctance of humans to study it seriously cannot stop me from working theories of my own, based on my own experience. This is what leads to the appearance of bizarre writings as this one, every now and then.
