The practice of magical ritual is not something i can claim to be knowledgeable about although it is a topic which i am intreagued by. I have a friend who is into the practice of elementary magic and after reviewing some text on the attached link am interested to know whether it would be percieved by the folk on here as being intergratable with my big toe practise and concepts. From what I can gather it provides the means for harnessing the forces of pure elementary archetypes to gain clarity and personal growth, and aide with ones development and understanding.
As a suggestion of where to start on the path to spiritual growth Tom provides a technique for beginners meditation using a mantra or whatever suits as a means for expanding ones awareness. While I understand the difference between negative entropy reduction (control/acting) and the positive, becoming a genuine embodiment of love, I cant see that the use of these kind of ancient ritualistic practices would be detromental to ones growth, provided they were used in conjuction with the right inent.
It is something that interests me and I am considering finding out more about, before I do however am i missing something? Or is this path just as valid as any other if it achieves what it sets out to in a positive way?
If anyone with any knowledge in this area could review the link and offer some thoughts I would be most gratefull. :)
