While many will think of “Star Wars” if I mention 'the dark side”, some of us will think in terms of dabblers, wanna-be's and others who get in over their heads when messing with the spiritual. For that reason, much of initial training and a respectable portion of even advanced learning is devotes to knowing where and what the safe boundaries are. They are for your safety. Most people who have been in The Craft for any length of time can tell at least one story of what happens when someone crosses one of those lines.
This does not mean that you have to meekly accept a bad situation. Quite the contrary, most of us would feel an obligation when faced with certain issues. Two things are necessary here: knowledge of the boundaries, and a decent supply of creativity. You can do what you need to do without getting yourself into trouble.
