C_A, I can see where some people might be puzzled by your comment. Can you discuss a little why hatred is not a factor? I recall my first Wiccan teacher (an HP by the way) saying baneful magic is unwise because you have to work up so much negativity and hate you can make yourself sick. I've also heard very competent witches remark on revenge being served cold, with a calm and objective attitude being crucial.The world is filled with so much hate, it would be sad for me to bring any of that into my spiritual life.
Okay, let me put a STOP to THAT right there.
This has NOTHING to do with hate. Nothing whatsoever.
Can you expand a little on what you mean?
