I have found the beautiful quote by S.H. Sharpe "The underlying purpose of magic is not to deceive but to encourage to approach life and the cosmos in a state of wonder."
Unfortunately, I couldn't trace its origins.
In Linking Ring, Vol. 66, N. 1, January 1986 he wrote: "The underlying purpose of the Mysteries was to help in waking up the sleeping divine in man", which is similar but not the same.
Anyone can help me in finding its source? Maybe it is just a paraphrase of his thought?
Thanks in advance!
