Courtesies in Magick
By: Moderator / Knowledgeable
Post # 1
A friend posted this elsewhere, and I felt it was highly applicable here. The following are the outlined courtesies of Richard Dukante, paraphrased:

1. The Magician who repeatedly contradicts the knowledge of another Magician without first having his facts in order will never excel in his studies. This is because if one is constantly arguing one's own point of view, he is closed to all others.

2. A Powerful Magician will not boast of power or greater knowledge. His magick and his Art will prosper.

3. Ranks amongst Magicians should not be coveted and status should not be competed for.

4. A lesser-ranking Magician should not be intimidated by nor afraid of a Magician of greater rank than himself. The Magician of greater rank is a figure to be learned from and he is an equal to the Magician of lesser rank, not a superior.

5. Likewise, a higher-ranking Magician should not look down upon a Magician of lesser-rank nor pull superiority, for the Magician of lesser-rank is his equal and someone to be learned from.

6. One Magician's 'only right way' of working Magick may not be the right way for another. Each and every person is an individual and must do what works for him.

7. It is only natural that one Magician may excel in one area of magick where another will falter. Everyone has their strong and weak points.

8. We, as Magicians, are each given a gift from the Universe. This gift is the ability to excel in one or more areas of magick. These gifts are an extension of an ability which we were already born with.

I believe at their heart is the concept of humility, which every magical practitioner should strive for.

It should be noted, however, that there is a vast difference in contradicting the knowledge of another magician and speaking out against the teaching of pure fantasy.

That's something all human beings should strive for.

And there is indeed a huge difference.

It's actually very refreshing to see a lot of these because when I first started my practice I had come across these thesis and I still follow them to this day. This was a long time ago but I love to see it still being thought of and passed around.

Thank you for the post :)

I also agree with this way of perceiving the Universe ,understanding others and yourself and walking your path by being who you are .I am glad we did not came to this plane of existence to be either equal, neither too different ,so we could learn and grow pushing or dragging each other, or the world would have been very boring place to get along with .
I must admit sometimes it is hard to not get yourself too serious ,or to not get angry when someone refuses to even try to get remotely your point of view ,however we all need to learn to let go of our bad habits and inclinations .We can do that only by observing how we interact with others as part of group .For this reason I am very glad to belong to such a vast multitude of people practicing different paths and ways .
Awake thanks so much for sharing those courtesies with us .
