Magic is the science of gestures. For this reason, disciples must learn to be conscious of every movement they make; they must be careful not to make useless or destructive gestures while they are talking or walking or in their work, for they can have very grave consequences from the spiritual point of view.
Every gesture is a force, and it is operative on every level of being; it corresponds to specific currents, colors, and vibrations and affects a host of beings in and around us. Every gesture opens or closes certain doors of nature to us and links us either to good or evil powers. If we want to advance on the path of love, wisdom, and truth, we must study our gestures and see whether they manifest the presence of these three virtues within us.
