The Power of Consciousness – Magic, Magicians and Sorcerers
Heka was a foundational concept (like maat) in Kemetian creation mythopoetic narratives to represent the importance that speech and rhetoric have to change and alter the world around us through the influence and affect that word symbols have on consciousness.
Heka was externalized, personified, anthropomorphized, reified and deified as a “god” to represent this idea.
Heka is he-ka, and the word “he”was the symbol of entwined loops to symbolize time, infinity, and eternity, used to represent millions of years in some cases. But it had a more important meaning when used with the all-powerful symbol “ka”.
Heka symbolizes our actions through cyclic time, as in the Wheel of Dharma, Karma, Time, Fortune, Fate, Destiny, boundaries of behavior for living. We reap what we sow. We create our own destiny, fate and fortune through time.
There are many ideas that are sold where people buy into them and live accordingly. These are spells, invocations, conjurings, that are injected into consciousness through the simplicity of being heard and listened to. This is magic of the highest kind, imperceptible, hidden, mysterious, unless you know how to see and hear what is being done to you.
“The power of words which have conscious (or unconscious) meaning, when spoken or chanted aloud, have an ecstatic quality which may bring one into a hypnotic or meditative state.”
~ Michael Ford (Necrominon – Egyptian Sethanic Magick)
Chanting, entertain, amuse, amaze, mesmerize, hypnotize. These are altered states of consciousness that can be induced, invoked, and summoned into consciousness, just as a magic spell in fictional stories can summon things into reality, these spells cast on the mind will often summon specific actions and behaviors into the world (government is one example, a belief cast on consciousness to live a certain way in life).
We can practice and master this art and science to create more good, right and moral truth into the world, and we can also do the opposite and create more evil, wrong and immorality into the world. Understanding principles of moral truth is a supreme importance to determine the condition and quality of life we lead.
A magician or wizard is concerned with the suffering of all beings and seeks to alleviate that suffering of all by influencing consciousness to understand the root causal factors of how we create the conditions of suffering for ourselves on this planet. They are not solely concerned with their own suffering, and use their will-power to try to find ways of ending the problems, chaos, immorality, evil, violence, enslavement and suffering in the world by being concerned with and including other beings into a larger scope, worldview and perspective. Caring for ourselves requires also caring for others.
Sorcerers use their will-power to create advantage and gain for themselves or their circle of concern alone, and often at the expense of others because it’s about them and theirs; their circle of inclusion of their family, their friends, etc.; “my truth”, “my freedom”, “my survival”, while they find ways to justify their actions against others because they are not included in their circle of concern and care.
We are bound together, connected, in how we collectively aggregate our actions and behaviors in a social context to create the environment that we live in. We can create and have greater freedom, peace, prosperity and anarchy (no rulers, no masters, no slaves), compared to the enslavement, war, scarcity and chaos we are still creating for ourselves on this planet. It all starts in consciousness and ends in action.
