The Rose CrossTo be a magician is to take responsibility for one’s own life, completely.

As soon as one accepts that responsibility and ceases to blame others, one becomes a magician.  Whether one practices any particular system of magic is irrelevant.  The perspective of responsibility is itself the practice of magic.

A magician recognizes that one cannot change the world, only oneself.  A magician recognizes that the only way to change the world is to change the self first and then engage with the world.  A magician recognizes that, ultimately, the world is the self, and no change is necessary.
