Are any of these on healing?  Thanks.

What do you mean by healing? Physical healing?

Pål R:

Yes, illness, disease, pain. 

Also, it seems like magic is sort of similar to "law of attraction" type philosophies, is that correct?  All I've read on the topic is Daniel's essay and a few other short pieces.

It seems like there's a spookiness around the subject.  Many of the book covers have frightening images - what's that about!??  I'm a little bit hesitant to read much more if there's anything 'bad' about it.

I think that a lot of the above information can be used for healing, but not in a laying on hands sorts of way. 

The images could be there because of the great importance of symbolism in magic. For a good introduction, I'd read the rune soup guide to sigil magic, "sigils reboot" I think it's called, and then Alan Chapmans "Advanced Magick for beginners" to get to know the contemplative/enlightenment oriented aspects of the subject. 

But if spookines is not your thing, you might not like magic. It's bad-ass emoticon

Thanks very much Sid.  I'll consider all of that and hope to read a more detailed explanation of the links if you get time to do that.

cheers

Nice list, and not just because I am on it. I am inclining along similar lines, actually. Might be fun to talk sometime.

In one of threads linked, Daniel says as a response 

"for whatever obsessive quirk must wrangle the theory to death before they begin strong practice, which 2 hours a day is unlikely to be, as for most it will simply be insufficient to get to stream entry, which is key."

I wonder how many hours a day would be required on average.
