Damnit, it would be good to be able to work with a group and perform/channel/direct magic for useful and world changing purposes.
How many Pagans are against deforestation?
How many are against whaling?
How many are against tyrants in Africa?
And where are the groups working serious magic in order to bring positive and meaningful change.
Far too many times have I heard lines such as "I'm gonna do a small ritual for a good exam result", "I need more money - better get the corn dollies out" - but when it comes to real, serious stuff, it's almost as though people are scared of their repective karmas; scared of actually being able to change things.
Individual people can do things - but how much better, how much more powerful would it be to have groups doing this?
Spells for peace?
Rites for democracy?
Circles for fair government?
All alongside ordinary mundane action, of course.
