“Indeed, to cast a spell is simply to spell, to manipulate words, to change people’s consciousness.
And I believe that this is why an artist or a writer is the closest thing in the contemporary world that you are likely to see to a shaman”
— Alan Moore
Speak to the spirits around you
for they see things that we cannot
Listen to their voices on the wind
Grass, tree and mountain breeze
The flowers on the path
Dogs have Buddha nature
and cats have visions
withheld from us
that they share with those deemed worthy
Invoke the deity in all things
call it forth and watch the world come alive.
— G A Rosenberg
