The Real Humbug of Scrooge

I like the works of Charles Dickens. His A Tale of Two Cities is breathtaking in its scope and plotting. But even more fascinating are his insights into the psychology and motivations of the characters. Published just three years after the birth of Sigmund Freud and decades before our modern understandings of the mind, he […]

Putting the X in Xmas

Ever since I was young I’ve had a “thing” about religion and spirituality. Although I often found myself disagreeing with various religious beliefs, or with ideas being presented as supposedly representative of various religions, I still had respect for the underlying concepts. Sometimes, I found that people would create religions not to help others, but […]

Yes, Magick Works. But Did THAT Magick Work?

There are magicians and there are those who play at magick… I was once participating on an internet forum discussing chaos magick. One person posted that the great thing about magick [meaning chaos magick] is that you didn’t have to accomplish anything, you could just do it. I asked why go to all the bother […]

Learning and Nostalgia

Photo by b r e n t A few years ago I saw an article on the internet that discussed “the best colleges.” From that time on it has seemed like every few months I’ve seen articles on the same subject. Most colleges require some effort by prospective students to get accepted for enrollment. It […]

Magick & Magicians—Tantra & Tantrics

Magic & Magicians I am a magician. I practice magick and I perform magic. I’ve been a “magician member” of  The Magic Castle, a world-famous club for magician entertainers. I have performed magic for all age groups and have entertained thousands of people. Magic, like magick, has several subcategories. Two such subcategories whose differentiation can […]

Where the “New Age” Goes Wrong

According to Thelemites, followers of the beliefs of Aleister Crowley, we entered the new age (or more accurately, New Aeon), in 1904. According to astrologers, we are either at the cusp or beginning of the new Age of Aquarius. Some say that this new age is an era of invention and universal brotherhood. Others say […]

Religion—>Spirituality—>Mysticism—>Magick

On Monday, September 10, 2012, the Dalai Lama wrote the following to his friends on Facebook(!): All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This […]

Magick and the Butterfly Effect

Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Shawn Martin Scanlon, author of Everything You Want to Know About Magick (But Were Afraid to Ask). In 1952, Ray Bradbury wrote a short story about time travel. This classic story, one of the most re-published science fiction stories of all time, deals with a man of […]

Synchronicity and Magick

I recently read a blog which claimed that the author’s magick was improving because he was witnessing increased synchronicities in his life. Is this a valid point? Well, I have to answer both yes and no. Yes, his magick is increasing but not in the way his blog implied. Blinded With Science? Today, the concept […]

A Book That Needs to be Written

Are you familiar with Tantra? If you live in a Western culture, you probably know that Tantra is “that sex stuff.” It’s about “spiritualized sex,” the Kama Sutra, weird sex positions, and sex that lasts for hours. Didn’t Sting say so? (Okay, now he admits it was a joke.) Even in India, the birthplace of […]
