I don't pretend to be an expert in the art of Magick. But, as with many others here, a few decades of personal practical experience and endless studies may serve to qualify me to teach a few things.
I'm alarmed and disgusted by the new & nearly new magick users (if, indeed they are) answering questions and providing information to other new people as though it's authoritative.
Please, if you only read it in a book, saw it in a show, heard about it somewhere, but have not sufficiently experienced it yourself....SHUT UP!
Have a nice day. =)
