David Bowie on Magic

Bowie writes about his experiences with Magic, and tells joking that it actually works 😉

Q: “So were you involved in actual devil worship?”

A: “Not devil worship, no, it was pure straightforward, old-fashioned magic.”

Q: “The Aleister Crowley variety?”

A: “No, I always thought Crowley was a charlatan. But there was a guy called [Arthur] Edward Waite who was terribly important to me at the time. And another called Dion Fortune who wrote a book called ‘Psychic Self-Defense‘. You had to run around the room getting bits of string and old crayons and draw funny things on the wall, and I took it all most seriously, ha ha ha ! I drew gateways into different dimensions, and I’m quite sure that, for myself, I really walked into other worlds. I drew things on walls and just walked through them, and saw what was on the other side!”

-David Bowie, interviewed in NME, 1997

The Great Invocation[1]

From the Point of Light within the Spirit of the Deep
Let light stream forth into human minds.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of the Spirit
Let love stream forth into human hearts.
May the Becoming One return to Earth.

From the center of the Web where the Will of the All is known
Let purpose guide the little human wills –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the center which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power
restore the Plan on Earth.
