Example text

Sure, you can learn from other people, but you don't become a magician until you begin to twist something that you have read or learned, and apply it successfully within your own life. Anyone can convince themselves that they are a magician in the safety of their own heads; it helps sometimes to have a few followers or friends who agree—but the test here, is to go somewhere else and be a magician there. One of the most significant 'powers' a magician develops is a certain poise—a degree of self-assured assurance of manner.

Although Carter had the military power to do this, it could not actually be done. In the light of this, a more appropriate definition of magical power might be that it is the ability to achieve intended effect within the constraints of a given situation. A common misunderstanding of magical power is that it somehow allows the magician to exercise control over aspects of reality, and a distinction has arisen between "power-over" (bad) and "power-from-within" (good). The term "power-over" is used to describe the wielding of power against another, by physical, legal, or financial means.

A magician is a person who recognises that the world he moves through is an extremely complex place; that all that seems apparent and clear-cut, in actuality, hides a seething complexity, the full depths of which he may never grasp. Such a person, by necessity, is continually on guard against that which might limit his ability to adapt and survive in this world. A magician is constantly aware of his inner structures, and that which is around him. He constantly strives to extend his possibilities for action, patient, yet aware of the necessity sometimes, of going too far in all directions.
