Ah, magick/magic! What is it? It is the effect of will to make changes, first in oneself, and then in one's surroundings. It is "cause and effect". Many years ago, when I was a teenager, I asked my witch teacher that question, "What, exactly, is magic?"
I wrote down what she said; here it is:-
"Throw a few seeds on to good soil. Add water and sunshine. Tend the plants carefully. Watch them grow. You cannot get much more magical than that!".
Magic is all around you, and is as natural as breathing. All you have to do is find it!
I agree, magick is as natural as a growing plant, as natural as the world itself. The definition of magick I always found was that "Magick is the manipulation of energy", thats half correct. Magick is natural, so it manipulates itself to get a task done, yet we can also manipulate magick's energy into what we desire. So what do I believe magick is? Magick's life.
