recycled cycles

Fire & water-
Agents of destruction also revive
Consuming, yet giving essential spark to life
Refreshing the earth by clearing away
all the old, making room for the new

Fire the scythe that sweeps in searing swathes of smoke,
ash of all it touched turn’d to dust & soot
Prepares in its wasting wake
A newly bared surface for life to reclaim…

Water also rampages
in its irresistible raging waves
Slow or rapid rising,
silent creeping flood or roaring tidal walls’ crushing cut
Seething underneath its currents’ churning surface rush
Wearing through all it contacts in submersion’s decay
Eroding, uprooting, smothering
streams swell & swallow as if new inland seas
Wreck & recklessly redistribute lands’ fertility
once receded, subdued to former flows’ seeming docility
Ever enriches, even by that which it claimed
imparting its life-giving qualities in more moderate share
Returning & nurturing each generation through softer rains-

Til the next drought begins and the cycle’s restaged…

Types of Majik-

While there are a lot of different practices of majik, or magick, or however the fuck you want to spell it, at the end of the day it all boils down to this (pictured above).

I thought I should explain a few things, just to avoid confusion.

~

Positive majik- this is majik done with good intentions, obviously.
Negative majik- majik done with no good in mind, also obvious haha

-

Motion- majik that directs itself between the one doing the majik, and other energy. You are redirecting your energy and intent to something of a different energy. It will entail use of emotions, multiple energies, changing something, fire, air, and is intended to be offensive (by this I mean it will affect someone else, not necessarily fighting terms here). Warm colors are often affiliated with majik of motion, so using colors that fit this while doing majik may better help your intentions.
Sustain- majik that directs inwards, not necessarily from yourself to you, but rather it holds something in place, together or from change. This entails calmness (being at peace during majik practicing will help- think protection spell as an example, if you are anxious it won’t be as strong as if you were calm while performing the spell), a singular energy (even if you are putting a protection spell on someone else, their energy is not being used, just yours. This would make it singular.), retaining and not changing something, water, earth, and is usually defensive (used to counter balance an energy). The cooler colors can help a lot with intent for sustaining.

Both positive and negative majik can go via motion or sustaining.

-

Aggressive majik- majik that’s upfront, in your face, I suppose. It’s meant to either make something happen (motion- EX: aggression spells/curses) or keep something from happening (sustain- EX: protection spells/calming spells)
Passive majik- majik that’s more subtle. It’s meant for information (motion- EX: Ouija boards, premonitions) (sustain- EX: empathic, healing)

-

Ethereal majik-
This type of majik is special in the way that it is completely neutral. It isn’t positive, negative, motion, sustaining, aggresive or passive. But at the same time, it is all of those things. Its the majik of paradox and contradiction. It is used for recycling energy, cycling energy, it creates and destroys itself yet stays sustained in itself and it is the bridge between planes. Unless you are an ethereal being, such as the ethereal fae (which are very limited in number), or nobodies/shadow people, you can not perform this majik, as it doesn’t agree with non Ethereal energies. You can contract with ethereal beings and they can do it for you, but you alone can not.

Fire- Aggressive, sexual desire, emotions. Creates and destorys by taking

Air- Passive, music, transfers energy
Creates and destorys by moving

Water- Aggressive, purification, clarity
Creates and destroys by giving

Earth- Passive, protection, parental
Creates and destorys by containing

That’s all that this really boils down to, I might expand a bit more on this, and if anyone has anything to add I would love to hear it!

Love, I Apologize

  Dear Love,

I apologize

See I love you, but I cant love you

I dont know how to love you

Its like I try and I try just to realize

I cant love you when I don’t love myself

See this toxin was engraved in me

Something Ive been carrying with me since the age of three

You can thank my father Who didnt bother

To be a father when I needed him to be

I guess he got lost in the further

Because he abandoned me

Left me to learn this love game on my own

See I was never shown the way to love

And I know you wished my father had loved me

That I would have known to love another

But now Im stuck in this constant cycle

Of recycling the bad habits that I never knew I had

Damn Im more like my dad than I ever knew

Who ever knew donor sperm could influence

How fluent I am in abandoning people

But they say hurt people hurt people

So love for give meI apologize, but I cant love you just yet

A big Cycle

Maybe someone can relate to me, maybe not, but I see everything as a huge cycle.

After I came to a realization that I was molested at the age of 14, I’ve been living in a big recycling cycle

Because the molester is a close family friend, I affiliate with him almost weekly, and it’s practically unavoidable. 

Firstly, I start by despising him, then moving on to thinking mutual of him, then interacting with him, then reminding myself that he molested me, then losing contact and then the cycle continues.

Don’t get me wrong, this cycle usually happens within every 5 months or so, so it was very hard to catch up on but I eventually learned.

If you’re a victim, and the same thing is occurring to you, don’t worry, you’re not psychotic and you’re not the only one.

We’re all alike in 1 way.

Coldplay songs for the signs

Aries: Major Minus

They got one eye watching you
One eye on what you do
So be careful ‘cause nothing they say is true
But they don’t believe a word
It’s just us against the world
And we just got to turn up to be heard

Taurus: The Scientist

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart.
Questions of science, science and progress
Don’t speak as loud as my heart.
So tell me you love me, come back and haunt me,
Oh, when I rush to the start

Gemini: God Put A Smile Upon Your Face

Where do we go nobody knows
I’ve gotta’ say I’m on my way down
God give me style and give me grace
God put a smile upon my face

Where do we go to draw the line
I’ve gotta’ say I’ve wasted all your time, honey honey
Where do I go to fall from grace
God put a smile upon your face, yeah

Cancer: Sky Full of Stars

'Cause you’re a sky, 'cause you’re a sky full of stars
I’m going to give you my heart
'Cause you’re a sky, 'cause you’re a sky full of stars
'Cause you light up the path

I don’t care
Go on and tear me apart
I don’t care if you do
'Cause in a sky, 'cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you

Leo:  Princess of China

And why’d you have to go?
Have to go and throw water on my flame?

I could’ve been the princess, you’d be a king
Could’ve have had a castle, on a reign, but no
You let me go

Virgo: Clocks

Confusion that never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks
Gonna
Come back and take you home
I could not stop, that you now know
Singing
Come out upon my seas
Cursed missed opportunities
Am I
A part of the cure?
Or am I part of the disease?

Libra: Up In Flames

So it’s over
This time I know it’s gone
Salt water
Tasted it too long
I only know I’m wrong
Now I know it’s gone

Up in flames
Up in flames
Up in flames
We have slowly gone

Scorpio: Death And All His Friends

All winter we got carried
Away over, on the roof tops, let’s get married
All summer we just hurried
So come over, just be patient and don’t worry

No I don’t want a battle from beginning to end
I don’t want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don’t want to follow death and all of his friends

Sagittarius: Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall

I turn the music up, I got my records on
I shut the world outside until the lights come on
Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone
I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song

And all the kids they dance, all the kids all night
Until monday morning feels another life
I turn the music up
I’m on a roll this time
And heaven is in sight

Capricorn: Viva La Vida

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
“Now the old king is dead!
Long live the king!”

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

Aquarius: Shiver

Don’t you shiver
I sing it loud and clear
And I’ll always be waiting for you

So you know how much I need you,
But you never even see me do you?
And is this my final chance of getting you?

Pisces: Paradise

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep

And dreamed of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes

The European Union generates about 2.5 billion tons of trash each year. That’s 1,060 pounds of bottles, fast food wrappers, and other detritus for every man, woman and child. Forty-three percent of that stuff is recycled into still more stuff, a rate that puts the Europeans ahead of the US.

Belgian photographer Paul Bulteel has always been fascinated by the intersection of industry and sustainability, so it was only natural that he’d spend some 18 months visiting 50 recycling operations in five countries for his photo series and book Cycle & Recycle. “[I want] to confront the viewer with the volumes and variety of leftovers from our society,” he says, “and to document the ongoing efforts for recycling.”

This is really important because this could stand for anything whether positive or negative, Energy is the principle of the universal system. How we direct that energy is what we attract into our awareness. If it’s something of our past or future it creates a cycle, a recycling of our thought patterns generating around that energy you are feeding into it. This what i like to call blackhole thinking ;)

Don’t get stuck in your own blackhole

For his new book of photographs, “Cycle & Recycle,” the photographer Paul Bulteel travelled to recycling plants in Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, the Netherlands, and France. He wanted not only to document the “volumes and variety of waste streams,” which photographers and artists have been doing for decades, but also to illustrate and encourage efforts “to recycle waste on an unprecedented scale.”
