The magic drive is inherent to all beings: it is the urge to master the unfoldment of phenomenal reality. But the modern ego chose the black magic of technology devoted to war, conquest, and control rather than the white magic of attunement to the will and word of God. The ego has thus become an ongoing magic spell produced by mental insistence on protecting the shadow and keeping consciousness in a trance of ignorance. But the Supreme Magician is now setting us free through the sweet necromancy of grace. Recorded on the afternoon of Tuesday, November 10, 2009.
