Just a little rant and heads up for the new people and the fluffies. Magick, for those who are serious, is intimately linked to spirituality. BOTH are lifelong pursuits.
Magick requires you to be committed to learning and practicing. Constant reading, reviewing, working (yes, working), and doing it all over again is required.
You can NOT learn meditation in 5 minutes. You can NOT master visualization in 5 minutes. You can NOT astral project, raise energy and direct it, or invoke a god/dess by reading a forum post.
Serious practitioners take weeks, months, even years, to master their art and skills..and work hard to maintain their basics.
If you can't understand that, stick with the hollywood version of Magick, please.
