At a crossroads with Magick

2022.01.28 15:58 AutarchOfUrth At a crossroads with Magick

Well, it would be more accurate to say I'm at a crossroads as to whether or not to finally take that step from researching Magick into the actual practice of the craft. My hesitation boils down to this, essentially: I grew up in a strict, high-control religious organization. I've since left that behind. Being naturally EXTREMELY curious, I've always been fascinated by the likes of Jack Parsons and Aleister Crowley, and over the past year I've begun to read more deeply in the subject, going as far as studying the basic rituals without actually practicing them. Again, my reason for hesitation is tied directly to my Christian upbringing. Specifically, while I have personally left behind the Christian faith, there are some aspects (fear-based primarily) that linger. Because of the proliferation of "demons" in the Bible, and its interpretation of them as evil, fallen angels, I was brought up to believe that occult practices could and likely would invite these beings into your life, and once in, they are difficult to convince to leave and work only evil towards you. In other words, I've long believed that no being that would be willing to engage via occult means is the kind of being you would want to engage with. In the various books on Magick I've read I've been exposed to vastly different viewpoints regarding spirit entities, demons, angels, etc, including the idea that all of the above may just be higher-dimentional versions of ourselves.
Let me stop prefacing and get to my question for the group: Have any of you practicing, ritual magicians experienced negative results from doing so? In the classic, cheesy horror movie sense? Like, "I started practicing the LBRP and eventually started experiencing unpleasant occurrences in my house, etc?
Again, I have a strong pull towards the esoteric, but really really really don't want a Conjuring situation up in here.
I'd love to hear from those who have actually practiced Magick, not just circled the perimeter like me.

2022.01.28 15:58 drmanhattan1640 Dune Messiah, what a masterpiece [Book Spoilers]

I have just finished reading Dune Messiah, and I am simply speechless. This is the best piece of literature that dealt with destiny and choices that I have came across.
Like the first Dune, it dealt with the nature of governance, destiny, religion and politic but Dune Messiah elaborated on all of that and become an unparalleled human introspect into what we have to do for the people we love, the idea that the more powerful you are, the more constricted you get. Paul saw an infinite amount of visions, and the more he saw, the more he tried to control, the more chaotic things got. How heartbreaking that, with all his might and compassion, he still couldn't save the thing he cared about most in the universe.
Duncan said to Chani before the birth, in a different context

The Zensunni approach to birth,” he said, urging her even >faster, “is to wait without purpose in the state of highest >tension. Do not compete with what is happening. To compete >is to prepare for failure. Do not be trapped by the need to >achieve anything. This way, you achieve everything.”
In my opinion, this is exactly what Paul did.
The whole penultimate Chapter is an exquisite piece of writing, the reveal of the nature of Paul's son and how Paul was victorious over the Face Dancer was really touching, as a man who deeply values love and fatherhood, I tore up or to say it more correctly, "I gave up water to the dead".
