Circle of Joy and Sorrow

Everything that exists is in a manner the seed of that which will be. -Marcus Aurelius

Coup D'oeil

Now these two fancy little French words mean “power of the glance” and tell you the heart of casting spells- with bumper stickers. “Free Tibet” I’ve blogged about, and there’s also one on my car for my favorite brewery, DogFish Head. “Think globally, drink locally; support your local brewery,” makes for good advice all around.

Then there’s my sister’s (sarcasm) favorite. “Draft SUV Drivers First.” You guessed it-she drives an SUV.

That sticker expounds one unreserved little opinion. Which probably compels one of my co-workers to keep spitting on my driver’s side window. So whose energy work do you think is more effective? Who has control over the actions of the other?

Bringing us to one of those more trickier moral quandaries of spell work. Almost no need or intent comes without the requirement to induce behavior or not in others. Even if you cast a spell to be glamorous, that requires people be induced to see you as more glamorous than perhaps they would have decided.

Once upon a time, I read that healing is really the only moral magic a witch could do, and I still believe that’s not true. Forcing people to look at the horrible results of their desires and actions, how is that immoral? Just so, blessed bumper stickers are like highway hierophants, revealing to people the divide between the sacred and the profane.

My spell affects no one who has not an honest heart about the war in Iraq and what it has cost us as a people. Those who are stirred to restlessness and spitting on liberals, or their cars out of cowardice, are those whose peace of mind may be stolen away by a 3 x 12 sheet of plastic. The contempt with which conservatives feel free to treat liberals and progressives deserves its wages.

Great Goddess, Goddess Cybele, Goddess Lady of Dindymus,
May all your fury be far from my house.
Incite the others, go. Drive other men mad.

Spitting on your driver's side window? Man, that takes some bile - pun intended but nevertheless true! How utterly vile. I am so sorry to read that, but am in complete agreement with your opinion as expressed in this post overall. x

Thanks. I've had my stickers for about, oh almost three years now. They are starting to fade, and the "Free Tibet" looks more pink than red. I've been shopping around because I thought perhaps the shock value of them had worn off a little, but apparently not. Cheers!

BBC ONE's Real Story has uncovered concern about celebrity-led advertisments that can lead to borrowers putting their homes at risk by consolidating existing debts into loans secured against their property.
In one featured case loan company FIRSTPLUS lent Emma and Kris Galloway more than the equity of their property.
