Magic today has mostly been confused with, or thought of as simple trickery. It's sad because it was not always that way.
In ancient societies, like the Greeks and Egyptians, magic was everywhere. It permiated everything, people, objects, sacred places; it was a tangible
and powerful force. The Egyptian system of magic, known as Heka, was more ancient, and considered as powerful as the gods. It was the source of their
power, not something to be played with lightly.
The druids also regarded magic as a tangible force. Celtic orders believed the power of magic could be used to communicate with plants, animals, even
beings from other worlds in the cosmos. Magic could be used for divination and healing, or it could be used to curse one's enemies, or even to summon
demons to cary out dark magic in the name of the summoner.
When we are young and posed with the question 'do you believe in magic' the response is typically and unabshedly: yes. As we grow older and see the
physical aspects of the reality we live in our belief in magic becomes surpressed or all together lost. I would propose that question again. I believe
in the pwer of magic. In my mind (flame away) it could be compared to something like the 'force' from StarWars. It surrounds us, and binds us, it is
the commonality between us and the existence we percieve. Positivity and light magic would in turn enhance our lives for the better, while negativity,
dark magic, only serves to create hatred and supress the good of the world.
Cool thread, OP.
