1. The serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
2. The courage to change the things I can.
3. The wisdom to know the difference.
Yes, I know this originated as a Christian prayer and is now widely used by Alcoholics Anonymous and other recovery groups, but isn't it really much more universal that that? In my opinion, this hints at the self-empowerment that is the basis of all magickal workings. To successfully work magick, we must know what we can acheive and have a path to a goal in mind, we must have courage and confidence in our own power, and we must have the restraint to use our magic wisely towards useful goals.
A final wish -- though I want not to call it such, as it is very much within human means and does not require any divine power to achieve -- is that both Pagans and Christians, as well as Jews and Muslims, and people of all faiths would end their hatred and fear of people of other faiths, and realize that underneath each of our peculiar customs and beliefs, every religion in the world teaches love for the whole of humanity.

1) World peace - to finally see the day when men look past religious, social and racial differences
to see the humanity and divinity in all fellow man
2) An end to impoverishment and socio-economic classes - to finally see the day when money holds no
power over man and all live as equals, everyone working toward bettering themselves and those
around them, helping those in need
3) A greater realization of the spirit world by all and an end to the closed-minded skepticism which
clouds the "normal" view of the world and causes those same people who cry for acceptance and
equality to view all of us with "special abilities" to be strange, deranged and dangerous to their
view of society

If I were so lucky as to have three wishes they would be the following:
1. I would Wish for World peace and tolerance of one another. No more "religious wars". What is so religious about war anyway??
2. I would secondly wish to win the lottery so that I could provide a very good life for all of my family and to have the ability to open my Theraputic ridding center for physically and mentally challenged adults and children. ( free to those who would like to participate)
3. My final wish which goes along with the first one, I would wish that no one had ever came up with the technology or even the ideas for any type of bombs. We ahould protect Mother Earth, not blow holes in her!!!

Three wishes? MMMM!!! What would I do, I could End World Hunger, Create a Pagan Utopia, here on Earth. But I don't feel so enlightened today so I'm going to dish out my wrath and try to be a little origional.
1. Turn all politicians instantly into Lab mice. See hew they like to be experimented on and social engineered.
2. I want the kind of magick seen in Movies, I could then travel the world doing good, That's what I'd use it for Honest!!!
3. All those who try to push their religious beleifs on others, and harm others with their thoughts, words and deeds would be turned into Dung Beetles, a creature used to being in the Crap.
