Religious scholars have called the spirituality of others “mythology” or “superstition” and some would say with scorn “they believe in magic.” Pagan, indigenous, and earth-relating traditions offer another perspective. If “Magik” is the art of transforming consciousness at will, what does consciousness create? Schoedinger says that consciousness creates reality. Magik and communal celebration practiced by earth-honoring and deity-relating traditions change the world.. Let us learn from them how to create changes rooted in love.
