As has been established, it is easiest to learn a spell by having it cast on us first.
Lets look at a few that we dwell in now. Our homes.
Accepting responsibility for a piece of land is one thing, but submitting to the
responsibility of a home on that land is another all together. Simply put;
owning a piece of land is equal to having power, but having a home is
to be conquered. A family that are pilgrims & settlers who tame a
tract and then erect a home on it are conquering themselves.
There children are born conquered never knowing a world
without doors, and so on through the generations of
occupants. Proof of the power of this spell is that
families will happily pay gold to shut
themselves in behind doors.
Consider the elements. We must get permission to erect a house.
The rules of the region govern the kinds of house.
The materials selected determine the durability,
and the happiness of the workers
predicts quality of the house.
As always, the ends serve to strengthen the means, more than the ends themselves.
The more homes that are built the more strength the ritual gains. Until no one
can remember the first house but the ritual seems natural, proper, and right.
The decay of eternity sets in, and traditions become sayings, sayings
become foot prints, foot prints become letters, letters words, and
words become sentences. Hence we have judges who may
pass sentence on us from the laws recorded in books.
Let us now cast this spell. Search for a new name for this home. Ask this home for
permission to give it a new name. Study how this name will affect the region.
Select few matters that will give this house durability. Call to the
happy workers to help. When the new name has taken a
life of its own, be sure to pay the workers their due.
And with that I hereby pay
our hearts a blessing for
attending these words.
Peace be with us.
