Magick Brings Joy - It is the Mundane Life that is Tedious & Joyless -

Magick Brings Joy

Magick is Happening everywhere and there’s a lot of it too...

I was sad to see a joyless academic text, by someone who spends time in the Australian Pagan community, that claimed that magick and the Pagan community, was only a passing trend because of movies like The Craft, Practical Magic and Harry Potter. I am happy to say that these movies came out 10 years ago, but the Pagan community is still here getting bigger and stronger.

Sure, groups come and go, form and then become formless, but there are more of them. And more individuals in the census claiming that their belief system is one of many forms of Paganism. Fashions, cell phones and social media are things that ‘trend’ and go (sorry Myspace) but Magick endures. Magick never faltered - Magick always led. Magick is a basic human need that has been around as long as mankind, that pervades EVERY belief system. The study of the science magick continues on to this day and is growing stronger and it keeps me very busy here and overseas. It keeps many of my friends and peers racing from place to place too and we hardly get a chance to see each other. Yet when someone needs something we make ourselves available. Magickal practitioners are there for others during the sorrows and the joys of life. Ceremonies are required not only for the turning of the wheel of the year but also for the turning of life. Ceremonies need to be performed for birth and deaths. For weddings and heartbreak. For children starting school and leaving home. To create work and to recover from loss of employment. For post traumatic stress after war or victimisation and sometimes for mental illness. However, it is also for the times when there are no dramas and we are just immersed in joy and are grateful to the vast magickal universe that allows us to be living on the jewel of a world at this most interesting time. 

Magick brings Joy. It is the mundane life that is tedious and joyless. 

Magickal practitioners help people return to their joy - 
Now that is Magick!

So if I seem a bit slow getting the magazine out, please don't feel neglected... Know that I am busy helping someone somewhere- just as you are too...
And together, the more people we help with magick the more magickal we will make the world.

You are in my thoughts and heart always, that is why I go to all this trouble of producing this magazine. It is for you. Every joy to you.

PS: The next issue of Magick Magazine should be arriving in your mailboxes within the next 2 week - Enjoy!

HERE IS THE SECRET TO STOPPING TERRORISM

HERE IS THE SECRET TO STOPPING TERRORISM:
BAN ALL MEDIA COVERAGE ON TERROR RELATED EVENTS world wide -
Gone - End - Over - No more terrorist attacks . it really is that simple.
It takes away the reason for doing them.... if they get no free publicity then there is no point. If governments wont do that, then you know that they are opportunistically using these for their own political ends.
Today the media should simply be reporting on a SIEGE in SYDNEY - which is more accurate anyway - and fuzz out any flags and the like
PLEASE SHARE THIS TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE

Ice Caps Thickening Whilst Offsets Destroy Rainforest

Please feel free to share this post
Here are the real research facts about Global warming and climate change :-
During the last decade, East Antarctica thickened at an average rate of about 1.8 centimetres per year. The Antarctic is so cold that even with increases of a few degrees, temperatures would generally remain below the melting point of ice. Warmer temperatures are expected to lead to more snow, which would increase the amount of ice in Antarctica, offsetting approximately one third of the expected sea level rise from thermal expansion of the oceans.

The lowest recorded temperature of any location on Earth surface was −93.2 °C (−135.8 °F) at 81.8°S 59.3°E, which is on an unnamed Antarctic plateau between Dome A and Dome F, on August 10, 2010. The highest temperature ever recorded in Antarctica was 14.5 °C (58.2 °F) in two places, Hope Bay and Vanda Station, on 5 January 1974.

The West Antarctic ice sheet has warmed by only than 0.1 °C/decade in the last 50 years, and was strongest in winter and spring of the 1980 & 1990s . NOT NOW! Although this is partly offset by fall cooling in East Antarctica, this effect is restricted to the 1980s and 1990s.

The British Antarctic Survey, which has undertaken the majority of Britain's scientific research in the area, has the following positions:
    •    Climate models predict more snowfall than ice melting during the next 50 years,
    •    Antarctica seems to be both warming around the edges and cooling at the centre at the same time. Thus it is not possible to say whether it is warming or cooling overall.
    •    There is no evidence for a decline in overall Antarctic sea ice extent.
    •    The area of strongest cooling appears at the South Pole, and the region of strongest warming lies along the Antarctic Peninsula only
Yet the global warming mob ignored all these findings and promoted the only 2 that suited them
    •    Researchers reported December 21, 2012 in Nature Geoscience that from 1958 to 2010, the average temperature at the mile-high Byrd Station rose by 2.4 degrees Celsius, with warming fastest in its winter and spring. The spot which is in the heart of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet  beyond the arctic peninsula  - is one of the fastest-warming places on Earth. but it must be remembered that this sheet is not static and is slowly moving into warmer seas all the time

Don't let these facts be selectively promoted and misconstrued by our politicians for the sole purpose of introducing new taxes and policies that are in reality destroying our planet - IE Carbon credits that allow big companies to buy Amazonian rainforest to off set their tax and then they use it as a toxic waste dump that destroys the forest - These same hypocritical governments hamper the alternative fuel industries due to their loss in fossil fuel industry taxes - Change to alternative fuels is what we want along with a lowering of our cost of living. Real pollution reduction by big business should be rewarded -  not individuals taxed for the air they breath....
