The Magic Clock
Mankind invented clocks and ideas about time. We have to be careful that we don't fall into the idea that we can control others in time. That is: we want others to react a certain way in a certain amount of time. Grass grows at its own speed. Our friends grow towards us at their own speed. A sense of flow, of allowing life to work is needed to live the magical life. They say the watched pot never boils. I say that while you are waiting for one pot to boil you can stir another. I had a friend who said that the way to live life was to have a sense of a moderate waltz going on all the time. 1,2,3. 1,2,3. Graceful and ready for the turns. If we see the special spark in others we are less likely to want to control them, but rather will appreciate them. To look for this spark turn on your senses, listen to their voice, appreciate the way they move, enjoy the color of their hair or their eyes,if they are old look for interesting patterns in their wrinkles. Magic is sensory. Colorful, wonderful sounds, silky textures. Magic abounds but it is more profound than the shallow part of the ego. The ego can be profound but the reactionary part of it can be shallow. Appreciation for and reception of magic comes from our fuller self. May you preceive many good things today.
