The occult is not what people think it is.
As wikipedia puts it: “The term is sometimes taken to mean knowledge that “is meant only for certain people” or that “must be kept hidden”, but for most practicing occultists it is simply the study of a deeper spiritual reality that extends beyond pure reason and the physical sciences.”
It takes courage to let go of what society, parents, religion and other systems teach you for years and years, to finally form your own ideas free from dogma.
When a system tells you it is Evil to free your mind that very system could be evil.
So far, for me, magick is connecting. No one should live disconnected and sleeping.
