Magic is a matter of common sense... It's good to believe what's good...
Magic exists as long as you believe in it. Magic is a matter of faith. As long as you believe you're a wizard, you can do magic. …Too clever people who question your magic should be driven the hell away and harshly ignored. For doubt is Poison.
Some special things can also provide energy. Not only favorite beautiful things, but also talismans, amulets and artefacts. It's always useful to have some portable source of energy at home or in the pocket.
The point is that the human Mind is the God of this world. The mind itself can decide what is beauty (the source of energy), what is faith (the source of power). The mind can designate anything as its source of infinite energy and power. The mind can defeat any enemy only by focusing its attention on it and loving its enemy.
The idea of pride is the idea of power over an ideal order. A fool is an ignoramus who makes magical gestures and imagines that it is raining because of him. On the other hand, intelligent people, having carefully studied reality, can quite successfully predict the weather and use it successfully.
