Ya, With A "k"

I often find it curious that the actual practice of magic must contain a 'K' somewhere in the spelling, but if it will help break people free from the associations with Tolkien and Rowling, I guess it serves its purpose.

I think the question 'does it work?'  Is actually indicative of the cultural biases at play when Westerners meet magic long forgotten.  Magic is a holistic practice by which you create internally the changes you want in the world around you.  It is very closely related to what Gandhi meant when he said 'be the change you want to see in the world.'

As such, Magic needn't create any external change to be dramatically impactful.  Done properly, it is a healing and therapeutic practice which settles the mind with its desires.  This settling creates the calmness, clarity, and confidence needed to achieve one's goals.

Magic which can do all this works.  The changes it creates in others and in the physical world are the simply a compliment to the core of the practice: a gift from self to self.

The "K" in Majik goes back a lot further than any of you are realizing. TRUE it DOES seperate the decandant/wanna be "magician" from the True practioner, but if you research it out back to Summeriatic times which by the way, predates any other "organized language", it is spelled with the k, not a c! The c also came about thru the translation into "English" form. Theres your education for the day. Tomorrow is yet another day! New day, New Oppurtunities.
