The Magician's Creed

You are the people,
You are this season’s people –
There are no other people this season.
If you blow it, it’s blown.
– Stephen Gaskin


I. The human race is in imminent danger of self-destructing and dragging our mother earth down with it.

II. There will be no miraculous salvation due to so-called Mayan 2012 prophecies; or Jesus' or the Mahdi's return; much less from the irresponsible governments, corporations, media, and academics who got us into this mess in the first place.

III. The theory of probable realities states that each individual person decides the fate of the entire universe. If you truly choose to save c the world, you will wind up in a probable reality in which the world is saved.

IV. The only chance for survival - not to mention prosperity - is for each individual to reject society's mutual suicide pact and make saving the earth and future generations their NUMBER 1 PRIORITY (as opposed to something they may get around to someday). This is the magician's equivalent of the Bodhisattva's oath.

V. Rejecting social conditioning means eradicating all trace of self-pity. Only by clear, sober, objective thinking - as opposed to the endless loop of yada-yada nonsense emanating from society - can each individual save him/herself and the earth.

VI. This type of thinking is based upon what each person's heart tells them. It is different for everybody; and everybody has to find their own answers for themselves by examining their own habitual thoughts, moods, and concerns minutely. To do this magicians use various techniques, including:
     a) techniques of self-analysis such as Active Imagination and Recapitulation.
     b) techniques of transformation such as resorting to tree spirits and the earth.
     c) techniques of hopefulness such as Creative Visualization.

VII. Detaching from society's conditioning of self-pity necessarily implies taking complete responsibility for oneself rather than wallowing in helplessness or daydreaming. To do this magicians:
     a) channel their own spirit guides themselves for information and advice;
     b) go to nature spirits for validation rather than seek the approval of other people or society;
     c) become as self-sufficient and frugal as possible, including growing at least some of their own food and reducing their needs to the bare minimum.

VIII. The goal of magic is to make everyday life more dreamlike; to be able to feel comfortable in situations beyond one's control. Feeling relaxed and in good shape even in the midst of a maelstrom is called "enlightenment". Enlightenment doesn't mean light as opposed to dark; but rather light as opposed to heavy.
