Magic(K)al art and Imagination

Some may disagree with my assessment of Magic(k) as a mental activity, but then I’m of the mind that imagination is a powerful thing.
I don’t consider myself a Pagan Fantasist – or those within the Pagan/Occult community who reconcile every occurrence in their lives with a fairies passing or a demons whim – I’m a realist who feels that the foundational aspects of reality are primary to understanding the world as a Pagan and that living in a world of manifested fiction is not only harmful but debilitating.

With that said, I also feel that when one embraces ritual as a physical exponent of worship or religious action there is also an aspect of imagination that needs to be loosened.  This act can alter the perception of ones place within reality and his/her chosen or prescribed role.
