Control? Please.

rootandrock:

theheadlesshashasheen:

I don’t get - at all - some of the male magicians I interact with. Of all the bizarre notions I see them discuss regularly, one of those is this idea that the magician is ‘in control’ of his spirits, the world, etc.

Spirits have Agency, which is why we engage them. Their abilities - and capacity to set up events and swing things into motion - are why we turn with them, ally with them, and so forth. To strip them of that Agency, and pretend that you ‘control’ them baffles me.

Why the fuck would you do that? Sure, there’s a sympathetic - or perhaps even contagious - link between the two of us and each influences the other. But that isn’t the same as “control.”

It seems to me to be begging to have one’s life upset when a spirit finally breaks free of your influence and decides that it isn’t particularly pleased with your actions.

And then - especially if we’re chatting about the dead - you are fucked. It is gonna fuck your entire world up, and without a mediating God or Spirit, you’ll just be taken for a terrible ride.

I have allied with my familiars. They “serve” me, in the same sense legions in an army might follow the instructions of a General, but in that same sense, they also have their own Being. They will abide by their nature, unless I go out of my way to compel them otherwise… And that is always a last resort. Without mutual trust, the alliance is meaningless. And if I try to micromanage them, then I’m probably going to fuck up the paths to my desires. Because they have a better understanding of those paths than I do.

"Be obedient to the spirits, that they be obedient to you."
- Grimorium Verum. (Peterson translation.)

Okay, but that last quote though.

This is also how I interpreted ye olde line of “A witch may enter and exit the circle where a magician may not.” ‘Cause witches don’t piss spirits off by dick-wagging at them from the safety of a zoo cage, but that’s me being snarky.

I don’t have a very flattering view of what I consider abduction, illegal detainment, assault and battery of spirits.  NOT doing that is how I can work with shit that will fuck other people up soooooooo badly, and yet I come out smelling of roses. I treat them like friends, like honored guests, and I don’t be a dick. Not being a dick goes a loooooong way. I don’t put them in a cage, I arm myself and make the terms of hospitality known. There I am evoking demons from Solomonic work sans circle, and they’re like “Awwww, what’s up witchbitch? How’s your fine ass been? *slaps a high five* I found this weird ass little goblin thing with a nose that sprays glitter. It eats pocket lint. I saved it for you. *offers*”

Though I will marginally, marginally, disagree on one point: The Dead. I work without intercession. I work on my own FIRST. If they are utterly beyond reason - beyond the reach of what I can do - THEN I call in someone else and I remove myself from the equation. I sing for them and love them with the whole of my heart and I’ve never had ill effects - human or animal.

I’m not complaining, I’m just curious. Is everyone else having issues with xkit? I know he does his best and he’s fantastic for giving us what he has, so I know he’s working on it. I just want to know if it’s not just me.

I keep getting a thing that pops up and says there’s something wrong with xkit, and my timestamp plugin is NOT working at all, but everything else appears to be working fine. I mean, honestly the only annoying thing is the little red box that keeps saying something’s wrong with xkit. which goes away when I refresh my feed. XD

It’s the latest post on the xkit blog!

(Short Version: A recent Chrome change now requires me to do either impossible things or drop the majority of XKit features in order to actually work. I’ve tried doing the impossible thing today and failed miserably, crashing the servers, and I’m still searching for a workaround.)

(He usually keeps the blog pretty up to date! I’m just gonna deal with the issues ‘cause I don’t feel like dragging Firefox up, and hopefully something will get figured out)

When you’re extremely intuitive, it can be hard to sit back and watch people make choices that will be the source of their suffering. Step in when your heart drives you to do so out of love; not when you think it’s only right.
