Is Magic Real?

I've always believed that magic is possible. Or at least, I've always hoped it was. I have no proof that it exists, but that doesn't mean that it's not real.

I don't know much about witchcraft. I have always been interested in learning more about it though. Do witches really have power to perform magic? I don't know, but it's interesting. I do know that they perform spells for different things. Is this magic? I think it is.

The problem with magic is, that although most people are good, there is always a few that aren't. In any group of people, you have a few bad seeds. I don't care if it's witches, Christians, nurses, or teachers, you always have a few bad people who don't follow the codes that the group as a whole believes in.

Witches have a code (I'm not sure if this is the right word) that they believe in, to harm none. I believe that most of them follow this code and I believe that most of them are good people, but I know there are a few out there that don't follow this principle. As with any group, it is this minority that brings scorn to them as a whole. This is not right, but unfortunately, it seems to be the way the world works. It's like the Catholics that get bad publicity for the few terrible priests that have molested the children in their parish. Most Catholics are good people, but it only takes a few bad ones to make them look bad.

The point of my ramblings is that although most who practice magic are probably good, there are a few out there who are not and practice black magic. You have to take the bad with the good, or do without completely. I'd hate to think that we miss out on all the good things in life because of the bad things. Do we avoid the city because it is more dangerous than the country? Many people do, but at what cost? Do they never see the museums and zoos? Never get to shop in the best malls? What about all the history the big cities have to offer? Do they never get to experience that either? I would personally hate to miss out on everything this world had to offer because of fear.

If magic does exist, I think it's a good thing. I would love to believe there is a place such as Hogwarts. I'd hate to realize there really is a Valdemort, but look at all the wonderful things you'd have to do without. Besides, I'm a firm believer that good wins over evil.

I hope I haven't offended anyone with my thoughts today. If I have, I apologize, that was not my intent. It's my personal belief that we should accept the differences in people. If we were all the same, how boring would that be? I like to learn about different people and cultures. I don't believe there is one right way to live your life. I think everyone should try to be the best that they can be, no matter which way they try to do it or which path their life takes.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a comment and share with me.

I don't necessarily believe in magic, but I do believe in the paranormal and an afterlife. I think this world is just one plane before we head to the next. In my heart, I think the universe is truly just. Karma might not be evident all the time in this world, but I think that your actions here follow you to the next realm, where ever that may be :)

And I agree, I'm so thankful for all the different cultures and that there isn't a 'right' way to live. What would be the fun in that? ;)

Hi, Sierra! I do believe in magic. Maybe not the wand action abracadabra type magic (although that would be cool to learn it existed), but I do believe it exists. And, like you, I love the differences of people. It makes life so much more fun. How boring it would be if everyone was just like ME or YOU! I mean we're pretty entertaining and fun, but all the time 24/7 of just offense, but that would get old. ;-)

Thank you for the comments. I happen to agree with you Katie, I believe that karma eventually catches up with you at some point. I hope I've lived my life so that all I get back is good karma. At least mostly. That is my goal.

Yeah, Gracen. 24/7 of us would get old, LOL. Even though we are pretty cool ;) You really can have too much of a good thing. Hehe.
