We rely on magic so often that sometimes, we seem to forget why we use magic in the first place.
I think we must remember that magic is a tool to serve us, make our lives just a bit more useful. We use magic to speed things up so that we can spend more time on the more important stuff. We use magic to make things simpler so that they’re easier to use. We use magic to do things for us when we can’t be there to do it ourselves.
In short, magic should be used to make our lives easier.
When magic becomes so tedious, then it would have defeated its purpose. At which point, we would be serving magic rather than the other way round. That would be very dangerous as we would have succumbed to its addictive nature.
We must always remember why we use magic in the first place.
