Magic(k) in every Day life
The world of magic, okkult and spirituality is usually perceived as something which is different from our everyday life. We picture Yogis, Sadhus and Taoists who devote their lifes completely to the path of enlightment. Preferably they find some remote Spot to sit on and submerge in Meditation and generally being holy. After years and years of meditation about their inner self, they reach the Nirvana or Tao or how ever we care to call it. While this is probably a valid path, I dare say it is not the only path a human can take.
Wouldn’t the world be a strange place if the only way to enlightment and spirituality is by totally refusing to be in the world?
The Western way to enlightment was always a little different to the eastern way. While the typical Alchemist would also draw back from the everyday life of his fellow humans, he would not focus on his inner self alone, but on the great work which would take place inside himself and inside his laboratory. He would blend his special work into his path of enlightment, merging the above with the below, the inner world with the outer world.
We also find fraternities (clubs, Sororities and whatever) who draw their followers from the “normal” people within our society. The Freemasons as an example are usually working man and they strive for the Gnothi seauton in their normal everyday life.
Within these pages I will report about my way to blend magic into my normal life (and my normal life to blend into magic).
