Message : what gets me the most is when new ppl come in and ask a real question and honestly want to learn and get made fun of because they are new and are asking for help on where to get started. Then there are the newbies that come in and ask stupid questions like how to become a mermaid that one gets me I just want to reach through my monitor and ring their stupid neck..lol
A direct quote from a close friend...Many new members are popping up and the art of Magick grows. Without this the art would surely fade. Think back to when you just started learning about magick and think about those who did help you. Imagine if those people didn't exist, you wouldn't be where you are today. So when someone pops in and says "Hey I'm new", how bout helping them find the direction they are looking for instead of being a smart butt or cracking jokes.
Many young people are mislead on what can be acquired through magick. Explain to them that what they seek isn't possible on this plane of existence. Then if they still don't get it, refer them to someone more experienced than you.
After awhile of trying to help the inexperienced and watching others create Covens and classes for those just starting out. I must agree with my friend's statement wholeheartedly, there really is so much in this site for beginners, you just have to dig a little. The more you are willing to help yourself the more the rest of us are willing to help you.
May the Dragons of wisdom guide you and may the Dragons of love protect all of you upon your magickal journey =)
