And I know it's tradition. I just find it a bit weird.
My personal experience is that, however ominous the warnings to do it this way or that way, it's really like the speed limit in Texas - just a suggestion. I mean, if one is a Magus with the will to command,
then the recipe is subject to the chef. Really, I think the "obstacle course" of grimoire instruction is meant to test the Magus as acts of sincerity.
Do not wear slave symbols like anything around your neck.
I never understood it. If I evoke, then I want to see the sigil in front of me, it's patterns, it's circuitry and so forth as I froth and howl. I felt the idea of wearing the demon's sign and gazing upon my reflection in the black mirror either distracting or perhaps a trick. I mean, if "invocation" aims at "identification", then "evocation" is "objectification" - there should only be assertive "I and thou", not "we".
I’m thinking of saying something like ”Night falls and i’m alone”, and talk more from there, i want to speak with eloquence. I respect them.
Yes, respect. Also consider that the spirit, being a spirit and of another order of time, already knows your intention. If you do a poem or something, then maybe you could treat it as an offering? I guess the key is to stay focused after the rite on that intention with any impressions and instructions the spirit might give either in the rite or after, in dreams, omens, etc.
I don't know about your experience with Bune yet, but in my own experience, if something big happens due to an evocation, the spirit may ask for some form of payment. Don't get gross
