Magick, as the Master Theron put it, is the art and science of affecting change in accordance with ones will. This statement is both astute and purposefully vague since it can be applied to something as simple as making a peanut butter sandwich to getting your band signed to making it rain. This definition of magick is intentionally broad to call attention to the fact that anything that one does can be magickal - and often is. Magick is a way of life, a way of both perceiving and manipulating reality, it is a technique that can be applied to absolutely everything that one does. Magick is the doorway to a more intriguing and fulfilling existence, a life of adventure and wonder and infinite possibility.
The universe is magickal, it is an infinitely complex and unknowable living thing. Man often seeks to come to understand this universe by applying aristotelean logic to it and quantifying everything into a rigid and inflexible grid of memes and maps. Practicing magick is an act of embracing the unknown and absorbing it, creating reality for yourself, learning to know through experience rather than accepting the word of dogmatic and authoritative scientists and theologians, and in doing so becoming unknowable ourselves.
To be applied effectively magick requires a little more than just passive acceptance, it requires practice and perseverance and most importantly it requires love. You must love yourself and love those around you and love the universe itself. By projecting love you attract love because the energy you receive is concordant to the energy that you project; what you give is what you get.
We here at DOOMCULT endorse practicing a form of magick that acts more as a lifestyle, applying its technique to everything one does and perfecting the alchemy of life rather than emersing oneself in ritual work and the study of ancient and outmoded grimoires. Magick needs to be lived to be effective and it needs to be effective to be worthwhile. One needs to embrace both the ascetic as well as the aesthetic. To focus on one and ignore the other is missing the point entirely.
It is often said that magick is not for everyone and perhaps this is true. Magick is simply a way of living life to its fullest, breaking down the walls that separate you from your full potential and lighting the way to illumination and self empowerment. All is consciousness, choose to take control of your own mind, then you will be able to take control of your own DOOM.
