I was leaning in this direction as well, his book, while bizarre, does seem like it could be a sincere attempt to teach young adults...something. Tips
for practicing abstinence through the study of wizard's magic seems like it just might work phenomenally! Thanks for your input so far guys
Here's a sample exert from the book, maybe it'll lend some insight, or...something. All credit to the author Oberon Zell-Ravenheart and all that.
I. Introduction: The Costume of a Wizard
When we put on any clothes we are creating a persona
(character) to present ourselves to both others and ourselves within a context; all
clothes are costumes designed to hide or reveal the real you. Your magickal regalia
(splendid clothes;finery) are sufficiently different from
everyday clothes (no #...says I)
to help remind you and others that you are now in the role of a Wizard instead of the role of school student,
athlete, or other mundane individual.
Each wizard develops a unique individual style all his own too, and no two wizards appear quite alike. Wizards do not buy their magickal clothes
off the rack at the department store, but rather design and sew their own, or acquire them from other skilled seamsters and seamstresses in the
magickal community. Being able to design and sew your own clothes is a very important skill for a wizard, and I strongly urge you to learn this. If
you do not have a sewing machine try to get one, and learn how to use it.
You might want to go to your neighborhood fabric store and check out the sewing patterns available. If you ask for help (tell the clerks you're
making a costume for a party or for Halloween), you will find that there are many fine patterns for wizardly robes, cloaks, tunics, jerkins, and even
Wizard's hats. I'll list a few such patterns here, although most of these designs are so simple that you probably won't even need a pattern other
than the diagrams I have drawn here for you.
IMPORTANT: Use natural materials, such as cotton or linen. Avoid man-made fibers like polyester or nylon, as they are insulators against natural
energies! (wait....isnt he wearing a purple polyester velvety tunic in all those pictures of himself?)
I dunno....this guy seems more and more bizarre, he probably is just a nutter.
