The Magic You Keep is the Magic You Grab
Being willing to reach out to make change is a form of working magic. Action is a type of magic wand. Dreams and hope are good. But to stand up and say, 'I am, I can, I will, I deserve it.' is what brings about the needed changes. Real magic doesn't live in a fairy tale world. Ordinary people can bring about extra-ordinary change. But there are strong barriers. Big lies are told to us and it is comfortable to believe them. It takes courage, and a willingness to work magic, to question the lies. We may not know they are lies. But if you get in the habit of healthy doubt you will learn to have a sense of lies versus truth. Lies often are told in an effort for the evil sorcerers to keep their power. Denial of climate change is one such lie. Right to work is another. As if having good working conditions in a factory were a bad thing. Doubt every slogan and label that comes your way until you have checked it out. Thinking, logically and critically, is the ultimate magic wand. So I say to all wise magicians, go ahead and overcome your conditioning. Bit by bit see what you can do to make this world a better place. Magic abounds. May the spark be with you.
