Magick is Magick

Essentially, magick is magick. It isn’t black or white. It is not wholly good and it is certainly not intrinsically evil. If a color could convey magick’s true character, it would most assuredly be gray—a color devoid of any ethical intention or moral implication. Every religion employs magick in some manner or another, whether in blessings, cleansings, holy water, or other practices. And anyone who has carried a lucky rabbit’s foot or some similar

totem, or made a wish by blowing out birthday candles or by dropping a coin in a well, has attempted to work magick as well. The working of magick is part of being human and of being self-aware. It is a natural tendency to try to impose our will and intent upon the world around us. The elaborate culture and history of magick are just examples of this tendency.
