Tomorrow Belongs to Me

This article was written by Donald Michael Kraig
posted under Magick

The title of this column is taken from the musical Cabaret, where the words are used in a song that heralds the coming of Nazi power. What I mean by it is that many concepts once considered weird are now mainstream. Mystical Christianity and Gnosticism are popular in books and movies. The ancient “law of attraction” has taken the world by storm by calling it a "secret." Concepts of quantum physics match ancient mystical teachings. Tomorrow belongs to all of us.

Where will magick go? One of my recent favorites is Ascension Magick by Christopher Penczak. It links ancient systems and philosophies with modern ones for magicians known as "lightworkers." It features numerous practical techniques for meditation, working with the chakras, performing spells and so on.

On the other hand, I have a feeling that the future of magick may come from ancient India. There is so much mystical and magical information from there that most books focus on one tiny aspect or gloss over things. An exception is Dr. Jonn Mumford’s A Chakra & Kundalini Workbook. It shows how simple yoga poses can change you, guides you to project out-of-body, do psychic healing, discover the power of real meditation and much more. Learn these techniques in just three short months.

Perhaps the future of magick can be seen in Patrick Dunn's Postmodern Magic. Just as Western society is moving to being information-based, Dunn presents a magickal paradigm focused on information. It shows you how to make original talismans and create a powerful magical language. You'll learn new ways to understand how to detect auras, increase your personal power, do banishings and perform effective evocations.

So which one of these three potential futures of magick will be the main focus of magick in the future? Maybe it will include several or maybe something else. Whatever it is, you will want to study these books to prepare for the future because tomorrow belongs to all of us.
