Ethical rules of the road
By:
Post # 1
These ethical laws will give you a more detailed standard by which to measure your acts, or the acts of others, to determine whether they are in accordance with Rules of the Road. Judge any act of magic by these laws before doing it.

1. Do nothing that will harm another being unless you are willing to suffer like or greater harm. Note that what the Universe considers harm may be different from what our culture teaches as harm.

2. Don't bind another being unless you are willing to be likewise bound. This applies to many love spells and some kinds of healing rituals.

3. Never use magic for show, pride, or vainglory. Using magic to show off, to prove a point, or from a place of injured pride usually results in side-bands (undesirable side effects) to the operation that will bring very undesirable backlash from the Universe.

4. Never set an extremely high price for the use of magic (especially divination, healing, or spells) based on your having special knowledge. With some operations that take significant man hours, such as divination, it appears by our observation to be appropriate to charge the same fee as any other professional might charge per hour in your local area.

5. Don't use any special word, symbol, incantation, or spell unless you understand thoroughly and completely its mechanics, content, and intent! Be very wary of using other people's operations if you wish to avoid "frying" yourself, either figuratively or literally!

6. Never do a spell without first doing a divination to determine a) if you should do it, and b) exactly what needs to be dealt with. Modern American social values and overt appearances of a situation are not trustworthy guides for a magician wishing to avoid bad karma. In other words, there may be hidden factors in the situation, which cause the doing of a spell to be against Rules of the Road.

7. TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT THROUGH, AND DO IT RIGHT!

To read more on this, see this site here; http://www.shamanschool.com/resources/articles/bigrules.html

Now to list what I disagree with again.

1) I don't believe in karma and sometimes harm must be done to prevent greater harm from being done.

2) I agree with, but only because I am a strong believer in our rights and freedoms. Our right to have free will is among those.

3) This kind of contradicts your other thread comparing magick to magic, although since I'm still waking up I may have read it wrong. Anyways, if you've got it flaunt it. :)

4) Divination doesn't take hours, nor should many other spells. Healing might according to how bad the damage is, some forms of divination could if you're not really skilled, but in my opinion if you are not skilled you should not yet be charging anyone anything for your practice.

5) Words, symbols, incantations, etc, they only mean what we believe them to mean. They are methods of helping us to direct our intent. If I say bing-bang-kadabra-dalaza, I believe that means something along the lines of letting it rain, and my will is that it should rain, it would be just as likely to rain if I had said the spell in English.

6) To a degree I agree, but it's a specific method that I would agree with. Whenever I'm about to cast a spell I perform some necromancy and seek the aid of Spirits before I cast. If they disagree then I'm on my own, if they agree then I get their blessings and their help. Necromancy is a form of divination.

7) Always.

Interesting thought! Very general, of course this is a general info forum. Everything has a balance and these rules seem to correspond to the work of the balance. Interesting...

I strongly disagree regarding love bindings. I think in certain special cases they are necessary. I also think magic should have a laundry list of rules. Everyone has a right to their own beliefs these are mine.here their are so many rules listed it is so limiting . Magic I think is supposed to allow you to do whatever you want if their are repecussions then so be it but I don't think there always are repecussions. Karma ? I'm not sure about . Magic should be like what crowley said do as thou wilt ...

Morally, Forget, and speaking from experience, love spells that force a person to love you should not be necessary and should not be done. If they are necessary then you are chasing the wrong person and should accept the fact that they just don't want you. Once you have accepted that you move on and find somebody else. To force someone into loving you is almost exactly like holding them against their will and lying to them at the same time, especially if you tell him/her that you love him/her since if you truly loved him/her you would let him/her choose for his/herself whether or not he/she loves you too. It's not a matter of kharma, in my opinion, it's a matter of morals.

This doesn't have anything to do with me personally but I think in magic you should be able to do anything you want.if someone wants to do a love spell then they will. I think magick shouldn't have rules that's what religion is for. Magic should be total feedom to do as you want. And that's what I think its all about. Especially those who practice black magic and there are many who do

From what I've seen "black magic" seems to basically mean using magick for things that most people would deem immoral. Through magick many things are possible. Not everything, but many things. However, just as in the mundane world, I don't believe you should freely do anything that you like. Murder is still murder, kidnapping is still kidnapping, the law is still the law and the law should not be broken. But, that is just my belief. As I said before I do not believe in karma, but I do believe in revenge. An eye for an eye may make the whole world blind, but so long as you don't go taking eyes you shouldn't have to worry. :)

Okay, I think your standards are very well thought out. But I beleive if we let go of our ego all the way, we'll realize we're just part of the world, and the world has no ethical laws. The earth will kill millions without thinking about it so why should we? I do not think or act this way but you should think in the larger aspect of the universe than from the humankind standpoint. A blackhole does not care how much it destroys and devours.

@Forget

I strongly disagree with you there. I believe that those who practice magick should be responsible and sensible with it, and not be able to just do whatever they please. And no, love spells on a particular person aren't right. You can wish for something to happen and if it's simply a matter of making them realise their true emotions then it's perfectly all right to do so. However, if they're not intended to be your lover in this life then you must get over it.

Callum u n I have totally different points of view on everything. I believe in black magic. U definitely don't . If anyone wants to do a love spell then they can . And they've been used successfully for many years I no many ppl who've used them . And they r happy and fine. I don't believe in murder or death spells. But for centuries love spells have been used and will continue to be used to save marriages n families.look into history n u will see what I mean. We have to agree to disagree here. Everyone has their own beliefs these r mine. U don't have to agree. But I think magic is used at times to do very difficult things and that's what its there for. Sorry but a man or woman who is married and has kids should be bound to stay with there spouse n kids and that's how I feel. If it takes away free will so be it. It can save a family.and I'm speaking for the many families who've been desrted by their spouses n left alone to struggle. And that's where I think magic comes in and helps. Some don't believe in this I happen to . But I respect ur views I just don't agree.
