What Divine Magic is Not

Round about the cauldron go; In the poison’d entrails throw. Toad, that under cold stone Days and nights has thirty-one Swelter’d venom sleeping got, Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot. Double, double, toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting, Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. Double, double, toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

(Witches’ spell from Macbeth)

The Three Witches from the Showtime series: Penny Dreadful

As fun as the above kind of witchcraft sounds, this is not at all the motivation, purpose or point of true, Divine magic.

  • Divine magic is not performed to cause harm.
  • Divine magic is not performed so that we might get what we want – a car, money, a house, a lover.
  • Divine magic is not ever guided by our own selfish wants or desires – NEVER.

 

Divine magic is engaged for two purposes only:

  1. To support union with the Divine (and through this union, supporting union within ourselves, with each other and with all of creation).
  2. To support the fulfillment of Divine Will – which interestingly, is the same as #1 above – union.

That’s it. The prayers, rituals and chants of Divine magic, as they are utilized in the Order of Melchizedek, are for the purpose of Union.  Period.

And, as ever “witch” knows, be careful what you wish for. 😉
