Base Use Of Mind Power

One writer says: "It is a fact known to all students of occultism that

Black Magic has been frequently employed in all times to further the

selfish, base ends of some people. And it is also known to advanced

thinkers today that even in this enlightened age there are many who do

not scruple to stoop to the use of this hateful practice in order to

serve their own ends, notwithstanding the punishment that all true

ts know awaits such persons. The annals of history are full of

records of various forms of witchcraft, conjuration, and similar forms

of Black Magic. All the much talked of practice of 'putting spells' upon

people are really forms of Black Magic, heightened by the fear and

superstition of those affected. One has but to read the history of

witchcraft to see that there was undoubtedly some force at work behind

all of the appalling superstitions and ignorance shown by the people of

those times. What they attributed to the influence of people 'in league

with the devil' really arose from the use of Black Magic, or an unworthy

use of Mental Influence, the two things being one at the last.
