The Magic of Just Enough Security
Have you ever felt fearful and full of anxiety? Did you get over it? There is a part of our personality, the Wise Magician, that observes and learns as we go along. When we are children we look to our parents as being a source of security and all powerful and loving. At least that is the ideal. Then we see their feet of clay. Oh, horrors! They are not perfect. We rebel. If we are lucky we go on to the next step and and realize that we had a good enough start in life to take over for ourselves. We accept the imperfections and also accept the good and the glory. Maybe the only good is that we have something we know to avoid. But that keeps us from being naive. Confidence and inner security is, in the end, a learned skill. It is ideal if we are immersed in a life of security and experiences that lead to great confidence. But when we decide to become our own Wise Magician we can engineer many experiences that lead to a mindset of confidence and security. Blow on your inner fire until a spark of magic ignites. Learn to develop security and leave fearfulness behind. There is a lot of fear mongering going on now in national politics. Don't sucker in to it. May the spark be with you.
