X. Law of Connection
Every action is an energy exchange.
To have power over something is for it to have power over you. To oppose something is to maintain it.
Two opposites each contain the essence of the other.
This is partly the idea behind Yin-Yan... each whole as a part of the other. But this is also a very important Law to remember when you are working magic. If you using sympathetic magic for someone you are making a connection to that person. That connection is a two way street. The person now has access to you magical as well. This is a word of warning for those that would use sympathetic magic, or any other kind of magic, against another in a harmful manner. You are building a connection that can be used to return or even send something worse your way. Always be respectful of what you are sending out.
