the way of the wyzard

This is the Path of the Wyzard-ress

the path from the earth to mercury. It is the path of the mind. It is the path of excellence and expertise wherever the mind is concerned. It is the path of logic and knowledge on the mental plane. To tread this path is to become an expert at something, often many things. The Sci Fi hero Dr. Who is a prime example of this path as is Gandalf the Wyzard and Sherlock Holmes. Real life wyzards were Pasteur, Madame Curie and Tesla. It is the path of the Vulcan (ever wondered why they have pointed ears?) The elf who pursues this path learns to control their mind...to think logically and clearly... to act in a transpersonal fashion. Their mind becomes a tool of magic and creative visualization is their forte.
It is curious that the Elfin Wyzards who are ever devoted servants of our people working unceasingly for our benefit and well being should be most often solitary beigs whose wyzardary is frequently carried out in secret while the sorcerers, who have no obligation and most often no inclination to involve thems'elves in anything except their own pursuit of knowledge and power, usually function in sorcerers groups. And yet, experience as well as literature, points this out to us continually. Although, surely there are solitary sorcerers and groups of wyzards for there are always exceptions to the rules, particularly in Elfin where there are no rules.

The Elfin Wyzard seldom works at a typical job. They are sometimes independantly wealthy and other times supported by the people so that they may pursue those magics which are in the long run for the benefit of us all.

Elfin Wyzards, of course, are nearly always experts at something and quite often experts at many things and they have an insatiable curiousity about nearly everything. They are eternal students forever studying this, that and the other thing... sometimes subjects so remote or seemingly insignificant that the rest of us are baffled at their pursuits. They tend to have very wide and diverse interests and bring together knowledge from a vast array of seemingly unconnected disciplines which they integrate in order to perform feats that amazes us.

Elfin Wyzards are in many ways the most eccentric of indviduals of a people (we elfin) that are by our very nature eccentric. Elfin Wyzards often seem to be like little children even when they are very elderly. They are ever tinkering with things and sometimes so absorbed in their researches that they appear oblivious to concerns of ordinary life. To those that don't know better they might seem muddled or befuddled... but this is a deception. Some call them harebrained and they can seem to be absent minded to the point of living totally in another world. But, be not fooled, the Elfin Wyzard is brilliant and it is just at those moments when nearly everyone else is baffled, befuddled and buffaloed that the Elfin Wyzard suddenly emerges in absolute calm control of the situation with the answers and solutions that have eluded everyone else.

The Challenge: the question is?

Elfin Wyzards are very community oriented beings. Are you? Theirs is a path of service and they are nearly always attached to, helping and protecting, a particular group or groups. They are not always regular members of a community but rather tend to show up, look around, see what is needed or what needs to be done and then provide it. Do you do that?

It's not a path of s'elf importance. If you show up and whisper around that you are a wyzard and see what you think needs to be done and tell others they should do it, you're missing the point and more than that you've strayed from the path... if you were indeed ever on it. The path of the Elfin Wyzard is all about being of help. They seldom even mention they are wyzards for it tends to hamper them and they love to move in secret. Can you help without reaching for credit? If so, you may be an Elfin Wyzard. In the long run the question is... what can you do for our people?

The Magical Act: what to do.

Do whatever you do. But do it well. Do it the best that you can and do it so that things are better for all of us.
