BETWEEN THE WORLDS – THE ART OF WILFULLY
CHANGING CONSCIENCE

Author: Marco Nektan (Serbia)

Many books, ancient grimoires, teach us ritual-magic techniques for changing the condition of our own conscience and entering the world of incredible visions. Hours and days of corporal torture, fasting and ritual activities were integral parts of lives of many artists, who sought perfection, great inspiration or the great work of art which lies at the end of this magical road, perhaps only in legends. Our origin is in the creation of universe and our creations take us back into eternity. By changing our conscience we strive for self-revelation - the source we originated from so that we could create this grandiose work.
