There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. -- Hamlet, Shakespeare Forces unseen by our waking eyes pull and push us. Some unseen forces may be malevolent or parasitic, while others may be loving, symbiotic and encouraging our development. Other people influence us in ordinary ways, but also magical ways through their unexpressed inner thoughts and fantasies. You are also a magical influence in ways you may not realize, and therefore have an obligation to be aware of the energy and thought forms within that act as magical influences on the collective, and especially on those to whom you are connected by inner ties.
