You can email me and I could tell you alot more.
But the short story is magick separates true believers in the craft from three card monte side show acts. I mean sure, even they are special, but it just separates the two you know?
You're starting to get into a very cool thing called paganism. The trick of our religion is you don't have to be any one denomination. The word magick is accepted in Wicca, Satanism, probably even maybe Kabaala, but it's also accepted in the vast majority of less..zealous forms of the religion? I'm not a Wiccan or a Satanist or anything like that, I'm just kinda spiritual.
I guess what it comes down to is Magick you can respect, and magic you see David Blaine giving all of his secrets away? I don't know lol. I'd take my money on the real elemental manipulation of forces and energies and even entities that people today simply seem to be detached from.
In conclusion I guess it's just a state of mind, albeit a beautiful state of mind. email@example.com if you've got any other questions.
