Present day magic thought is a bit different.
At the beginning of the 20th century Sorcerers of the “Golden Dawn” in various societies described it like this : “Magick is the art of causing changes in consciouness” (Aleister Crowley).
Devilman G. Chap 01
The Reign of Darkness hath an end. Behold!
Eight stars are gathered in one fiery sign.
This is the birth-hour of the Age of Gold;
The false gold pales before the Gold divine.
The Christ is calling to the starry fold
Of Souls — Arise and shine!
The Isis of the World hath raised her veil
One moment, that fresh glory of the stars
May glow through winter, where the sun is pale;
Melt snow-bound lilies; bid the prison bars,
Wherein men bow their heads and women wail,
Blossom to nenuphars.
The sacred lotus of the universe
Blossoms this century — a million tears
Melted the ice of Eve’s accursed curse:
A million more have watered it — it peers,
A resurrection fragrance, to disperse
Men’s folly and their fears.
Only I see the century as a child
Call Truth and Justice, Light and Peace, to guide;
Wisdom and Joy, and Love the undefiled,
Lead up true worship, its eternal bride.
Stormy its birth; its youth, now fierce and wild!
Its end, how glorified!
O Spirit of Illimitable Light!
O Thou with style and tablet! Answer me
In that dread pomp of Triumph and of Right,
The awful day: my witnesses are Ye
That I have said in all men’s sound and sight
The things that are to be.
