The energy we use for magic is all around us. It is the nature of this power to become something, become anything. All we have to do is give it direction. We do this through ritual intent-this is basically what magic is. The ritual is a means to gather and direct this energy towards a chosen result. There are many means to gather this energy and basically it is through rhythmn and repetition. We can chant, drum, dance or spin in place- just to name some methods that are familiar. Or we can use sex-with ourselves or with a partner (or partners). But it is not to be hurried, it is to be indulged in. We immerse ourselves in tne sensuality, seek to lose ourselves- or to loose ourselves. We edge forward toward the peak and then draw back. Then edge forward again. This is the rhythm of sexual ritual. We delay our release until we enter a state of gnosis, a trance awareness that all things are possible, that we have the power and that we can use it. Only then do we push forward towards ecstatic release.
