Check out this amazing blog post over at “Inciting a Riot.” It’s all about the public’s misunderstanding about magic, and the Pagan community’s own relationship to magic – specifically why everyone isn’t doing it and why magic isn’t marketable. It’s really some great food for thought. I wish I had read this blog post ages ago when I first started to try and explain magic to my non-Pagan friends. I always end up looking like a crazy person. Since I grew tired of the “this chick is insane/stupid/gullible/going to Hell” look, I’m mostly in the “keep magic to myself and sacred” camp. I sometimes post about it on my blog because, aside from the friends who are Pagan or are more accepting of my craziness, the blog is relatively anonymous.
Also, I must admit. I do get a giddiness when I know more about magic than some people. It’s kind of a horrible thing to admit, but when people don’t believe, I just feel like… “Damn, you’re really missing out on something amazing. ” They’re probably looking at me thinking, “Damn, she’s missing out on xyz.” It’s funny how that works…
