Where the Magic Lies
Every great magician sooner or later has to come to the realization that the real magic is not outside of themselves, but is in actuality within their very own being. I think we all forget this simple yet profound truth from time to time. The great magician and creator of your life is you. That's right I said YOU... And the magic is not in some far away place. There are a plethora of books and movies which demonstrate this very point as well. Power is not outside you somewhere, like in a magic rock in the forest, or in a sword. It is in you. I think when we stop looking for magic outside of ourselves that's when the real magic shows up. You just have to be bold enough to seek it and to use it, for it to show up in your life. I promise you it is there within you just timidly waiting for you to call upon it. When you are bold enough to reach for it and use it, it will show up powerfully and exuberantly and will amaze even you.
The magic lies all around us, waiting for us to reach out and grab it, waiting for us to merely use it. We live in a magical universe, but the most amazing part is that we are part of the magic. We are not separate from it, we are connected to it. The magic is us, disguised as us. We may look like mere human beings, but our power is extraordinary. Our lives are suppose to be filled with miracles and incredible, breath taking moments. It's only when we disconnect ourselves from this truth that life looses its luster. It's so easy in life to get caught up in this whole victim mentality thing, but it's total bull. There are no victims. We are all just as magnificent and capable as anyone else. You have just as much as opportunity and potential as everyone around you. Nobody is more special than you either. It's true that everybody has their unique talents and gifts, but we were all created from the same divine splendor, with the same divine incredibleness. The same universal creative essence and divinity belongs to you, as it does me and everyone else for that matter.
It's also easy to fall into the trap of believing magic lies in the past or in the future. This is also incorrect. There is magic in the present, in the now, in whatever situation you may find yourself in right now. Life is magical. You are magical. The whole universe is magical. So do you want to know Where the Magic Lies? Just look around you and especially within you. It is... everywhere!
