Treatise of Daoist Magic (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
The rational, the mental, and the intellect have increasingly taken over our modern lives, leaving no room for the intuition, the sacred or the magical. We have lost the ability to observe the signs and messages of the world. This book invites us to perceive the world in another way, with a more open and available mind, so that we can fully take advantage of the energies around us, with full awareness. Intention is the mother of magic. By training our senses and listening to our emotions, we refine the mind so that it can perceive something more: a new and always fascinating daily life.
This book is divided into two parts, Yin and Yang. Yin magic is passive, involving learning to listen and observe the world, and paying attention to the mechanisms and changes of the world. Its more active relative, Yang magic, builds off the previous phase, showing you how to act on the world according to your intentions. The book also explores seals, talismans, glyphs, stones, elixirs, fluid condensers, plants, and herbs.
To engage with the material within requires nothing more than a healthy curiosity, and an open mind. If you play the game, you will welcome the unexplained, the strange, the coincidence, and chance into your existence...
