Some practicing witches claim that the power they draw upon can only be used in benevolent ways. Then what power do so-called “black magicians” use? Moreover, this claim seems to attribute morals to an impersonal Force. The fallacious concept of a Force innate in the cosmos with a “light” and “dark” side producing “white” and “black” magic has caused much confusion.
The whole idea of a “dark” and “light” side to the Force comes out of Eastern mysticism. IT is found in Hinduism, where there is no sin, no right and wrong, each person’s dharma being an individual matter. It is found in Buddhism and Taoism, in the belief that there is a psychic Force, or ki, expressed by the yin and yang, neither of which is superior to the other, and neither of which is right or wrong, but both must be in balance. Acupuncture, for example, is the attempt to bring the yin and yang in the body into alignment. As William Devine, chairman of the California Acupuncture Association, has said:
“Oriental medicine is like that. You could bring one patient in, five different practitioners could look at him and come up with five different diagnoses, and nobody’s wrong.”
On the basis of what “Ramtha” (the 30,000-year-old warrior that J. Z. Knight channels) has said, we can be delivered from the idea of a judgmental God by understanding that “there is no sin, therefore no reason for guilt.” Of course, if no one is wrong, then no one is right either. Indeed, the very thought that someone might claim to be right is anathema in today’s amoral society. As Wade David insisted during an interview on the nationally syndicated Geraldo talk show, “There is no such thing as right or wrong in religion…that’s where wars come from.” Yet Jesus Christ claimed that all who rejected Him were not only wrong but eternally lost. Clearly a choice must be made between Jesus Christ and the world of the occult.
