Writing - the magical dimension of this act

Writing does not consist merely in tracing signs, characters, on paper or some other material. Writing, in the initiatic sense of the word, is an act of will, a stripping down. Writing consists firstly in subjugating something in oneself and then in expressing it outwardly as a gift to others. To write is to leave a mark, and some artists and philosophers have left magnificent marks, which are still being studied and are still providing food for us after thousands of years. But over and above philosophers and artists, there are great initiates who are true creators, for they work with divine magic, theurgy. They trace a few words in space, and these words, written in letters of fire, become imprinted on hearts and minds everywhere.
