Probably time to read this again. Need to crack open my spiritual side again.

I read this book several years ago, recently lent my copy to a lover, and after a coffee based accident they bought me a new one, so I thought it was perhaps time to read the book again. I really enjoy Hine's work, and found a lot of this book to be what I needed to hear again. The book covers more of what I would term the philosophy of Chaos Magick. The book has a focus on what Chaos Magick is, why it works, and what one requires as a magician, but very little on doing the magick, which is perfectly alright, but if one is expecting more of an exercise or ritual book, this would not be it. Phil Hine lightly touched upon the concept of personal demons, but really not in a way I found satisfying in theory or practise. I'm glad I took the time to reread it. ( )

The discussion of groups and politics in this book is surprisingly true for other semi-academic groups as well, such as universities and the Indie RPG Theory crowd. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 156184117X, Paperback)

Magic is a doorway through which we step into mystery, wildness, and immanence. We live in a world subject to extensive and seemingly, all-embracing systems of social and personal control that continually feed us the lie that we are each alone, helpless, and powerless to effect change. Magic is about change. Changing your circumstances so that you strive to live according to a developing sense of personal responsibility; that you can effect change around you if you choose; that we are not helpless cogs in some clockwork universe. All acts of personal/collective liberation are magical acts. Magic leads us into exhilaration and ecstasy; into insight and understanding; into changing ourselves and the world in which we participate. Through magic we may come to explore the possibilities of freedom.
