A miraculous power available to all.

Let's see a show of hands for those who believe in Magick.

We're not talking ordinary card tricks or run-of-the-mill prestidigitation, brothers and sisters, but the genuine art which has been transforming individuals and societies since ancient times.

Though sadly neglected in these cynical times, this miraculous power is available to all. No--don't turn away. You won't be transformed into a toad and it's not sinister or occult.

The ingredients are absurdly simple and available at ridiculously low cost (no sale of soul required).

This type of magick often goes by the more common name of creativity, and its major ingredient is curiosity.

The reproachful chorus of "Haahs!" indicate the normal response of disbelief accorded MAGICK and that is exactly why it is not more widely utilized. The skills required are not difficult, but Mr. and Ms. Average refuse to believe in their own innate abilities.

All of us are born with an ample portion of the ingredient. As children, we come equipped with a natural curiosity which enhances the ability to learn. It may have been curiosity got the proverbial cat in trouble but, without it, there can be no learning and, hence, no creativity.

Education begins with the individual and the first requirement is desire. There can be no beginning without that first vital quotient which is curiosity, fostered by need and receptivity.

Curiosity is the seed from which all invention flowers.

Curiosity is the magick ingredient that sparks great art, inspires the religions that succor our souls, carries explorers to new realms, gives us the inventions we take for granted and provides the zest to make life worthwhile.

If the study of quantum physics has done nothing else for the world at least it has shown there are no facts, ma'am, just possibilities.

Canadian novelist Robertson Jeffries postulated that acceptance of magick and the marvels of life mirror one another in that both require imagination to make them reality. In other words, what we're willing to believe becomes possible. Curiosity (imagination) opens the door to creativity (possibilities).

Curiosity provides an adventurous outlook, the ability to take chances and risk falling on one's face in the name of experimentation.

When we stop asking why the clock ticks and simply respond to its clamor then our world grows smaller and we become slaves to time rather than its master.
