Maybe I'll call it "Mag[i!]ck?"

After years of “been meaning to”s, this month I finally bought a copy of Liber Null & Psychonaut and began practicing Chaos Magic.

Reasons:

  • Two of my favorite writers are magicians.
  • I’ve spent a lot of time developing my body, but very little time developing my mind. I should even this out since the latter pays my bills.
  • An interest in studying belief systems for insights into human nature.
  • Fictional reference.

I got my manual, I got my journal, let’s see what happens…

Liber MMM – Mind Control – Motionlessness
Some basic meditation techniques to develop one’s ability to concentrate. Stage one, sit perfectly still for at least 5 minutes, once fifteen minutes have been achieved proceed to the next lesson.

I’m surprised how quickly my focus has developed. Last week I could only stay still for eight minutes before snapping. But last night I went twenty minutes with little difficulty. I know my tendencie to half-ass or skip basic lessons and rush right into advanced material unprepared. To break this habits I’m setting my goals higher than suggested. Tonight I did twenty-two minutes, tomorrow I’ll go for twenty-four before moving on to the next exercise.

  3. If you switch it up and go more Eastern with yogic crossbreathing and Kundalini and stuff, I’m so there. Leave the tantra out of it, tho.
