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…
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)
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!
Not only does Lizzie love to get down and dirty at the skate park, but she also loves getting gritty with DIY projects. At US Open, we challenged Lizzie to transform a T-shirt with only a pair of scissors, and within minutes she made this rad shredded sleeve top. From jeans to shoes, we’re all about that deconstructed edgy look, so you can bet we’ll be making our own DIY Shredded T soon! Get the step-by-step instructions below.
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
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?
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.”
Check out more photos and read about Bulteel’s project.
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 ;)
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.”
