Out of the Shadows
An Exoloration of Dark Paganism and Magick

The Nature of Magick


Magic is a very touchy subject. Through the evolution of the human mind, we have come to learn of ways to subtly influence our environment with various techniques we collectively call "magic." Various schools of thought, from folk magic to the Golden Dawn, have attempted to define the underlying principles and forces at play. Still, we are no closer to defining and documenting the underlying laws of nature on which it works.

The secret to working magic lies not in ancient grimoires or clandestine organizations, but in understanding and working with, the nature of magic. This chapter explores some of the aspects of this nature that are not commonly found in books.
