First off, I'd like to state these are my personal opinions and I make no intent to offend anyone. If you find this offensive, please message me immediately.
So what is magick? In my definition magick is a form of science that uses energy. As energy is in everything, physical and otherwise, you can do a lot of stuff with various magicks.
Often times people, usually young folks, start learning magick because they think it is cool. Magick is not something to be used because it's "cool" but because it enlightens people.
Magick has been around for thousands of years. Recently, practitioners have added a "k" at the end of the word magic because without that "k", many people think that magick sounds fluffy.
As a practitioner of nearly seven years, I have learned two things. Nothing is always as it seems, and nothing in magick, or anything really, is easy.
There comes a time in every practitioner's life when they must choose to make magick their life, or to continue standing from the sidelines and only continuing it as a hobby. This decision can be hard for many due to many different reasons such as their family's beliefs, how they were raised, and so on.
Magick is an ancient form and I believe that it should not be used lightly. Then again, this is all my own opinion.
