The Magician longs to see…
Through the darkness of future past
The magician longs to see.
One chants out between two worlds
Fire walk with me.
“My people believe that the White Lodge is a place where the spirits that rule man and nature reside.”
“There is also a legend of a place called the Black Lodge. The shadow-self of the White Lodge. The legend says that every spirit must pass through there on the way to perfection. There, you will meet your own shadow self. My people call it ‘The Dweller on the Threshold’… But it is said, if you confront the Black Lodge with imperfect courage, it will utterly annihilate your soul.”
—Deputy Hawk, Twin Peaks
Order and chaos, in a perpetual dance; it is all light and shadow, black and white, good and evil, life and death. One cannot exist without the other. Its counterpart completes the circuit, the sum of two parts…
Magick is where dualities inmix, sending a ripple through the multiverse, a whisper of esoteric potential. Between stasis and change, we look within and without, folding time and space, in conformity with will and mystic intuition.
A beacon of light in malevolent darkness; a spark of the sacred fire in a sea of infinite night.
