The Magic Of Flexibility
Several times I have heard the mantra "He who fights and runs away, lives to fight another day". Retreat, regrouping, trying another solution, there are many ways to talk about flexibility. Flexibility is doing what it takes to reach your goal. If your goal is a good relationship with a person, it does not do to try to win arguments at any cost. Flexibility is a position of strength, not stupidity. Another mantra I have heard is: "If you keep on doing what you've always been doing, you'll keep on getting what you've always been getting". To be flexible you have to be stronger than your fragile little ego. If you find yourself feeling at odds in the situation, whether it be with a person, a process, or an inanimate object it is time to start managing your mood. That is what the skilled magician does, manage the situation in which they find themselves. Flexibility is the willingness to try different attitudes, different behaviors, or different plans in order to achieve the desired result. Reach outside of yourself to the energy of the magic that surrounds you to define your goals and take actions to go after them. Be clear,practical and joyous. May the spark be with you.
