What would that mean? To think more often, even regularly, in terms of penchantment, mystery, wonder? Rather than, say, in terms of logic, i.e. reason and strict principles of validity.
Sure, I think and talk about magic at times, especially when I am creating. But I appreciate the reminder to cultivate this practice, of weaving magic’s radiant threads more lavishly into the fabric of daily life.
The gifts of logic and science and technology are undeniably enormous. Yet, the treasures of fascination, charm, entrancement make our existence shimmer in inexpressible ways. Unforgettable and soaring ways.
And the magic that produces them needs to be cultivated and cherished. Whether that sense of magic flows from an astounding sunrise or a blockbuster film or making art or hearing a piece of music that won’t let go or a heartfelt hug or…..
Even when moments can be and often are explained in terms of logic, they can be experienced in terms of magic, and miracle. Take the very fact of reading this post. What an incredibly wondrous confluence of feats your body, mind and soul are achieving at this very moment!
So, yep, I bought that little purse, which I will be carrying with me every day. To remind me that magic, like love, is all around us. And in us. Just waiting to be discovered…and nurtured.
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”~Roald Dahl
