Giving Divine Magic a Chance
So often I find myself sitting on a park bench, in the middle of a city or close to an airport as I wait for my next connection. But I’m never bored. I’m simply fascinated by this story called ‘life’. What are all these people up to? Where are they heading? What are their aspirations and dreams? What gets them out of bed in a morning? Sometimes someone will pass by whose really awake, whose not stuck in the ‘should does’ and ‘have to does’. Sometimes they’re awake enough to feel my spirit engaging theirs. Their head will turn, just for a brief moment; our eyes will connect, a wry smile… “Yes I know you, you’re one of us. You’re one of those who looks through the moment, who feels it, who connects up the dots into the deeper meaning”…
Why live small?
Spiritual awakening – and living that way – is straightforward. It’s not easy, but it’s straightforward. It’s looking ‘out there’, watching, feeling and observing, yet connecting with the reflection and how that resonates inside of you. It’s trusting that this is what you’re supposed to get. And no matter how subtle, that if you give that new sense a chance, it will ignite your wildest dreams, be the answer to everything you’re truly searching for.
There’s every reason why not to do it. The matrix has a zillion distractions, all purposefully configured to pull you into the drama and then own you. It has a zillion remedies, distractions and ‘cures’ for the pain it creates in you. Your senses are literally bombarded second by second, hour by hour, day by day. The brain simply can’t cope with the overload so it forms a map over the incoming information and filters out the rest. Since reality is shaped by what you put your attention on, you literally begin to live the life you expect. And most often its a very limited life.
That is until you begin to challenge. Until you realise there’s so much more to life than this, so much more to you than that.
Why live so small?
Falling into the Unknown
This world is drawing to a close in the 3D. Surely you can see that now: an arctic practically without summer ice; 200 species of creature going extinct everyday – passing on into a higher density; the oceans acidifying at their fastest rate for 300 million years; the earth’s magnetic field dwindling; earthquakes and volcanoes on the increase; the biosphere breaking down through storm and drought; natural resources petering out. So why hang on? Why grovel and grasp at final straws?
It’s time to let go. To fall off the cliff edge. To fall into the unknown.
The unknown is the place where it all begins. Stepping out of the safe and secure. Stepping out of the expected “But we’ve always done it this way”. It’s in the unknown that your soul looks for something else, for something different. As the mind surrenders, attention is directed by the universe to ‘spiking’ peak moments where consciousness comes alive. “Oh look at that person on the park bench”. What’s that twinkle in his eyes?” “What does he know?”
It’s when we’re in the unexpected that a space for true magic can happen. It could be in the reflection from an ad on a billboard. It could be in the harmony of numbers on a car number shield or the lyrics of a song that you just happen to overhear which touches something in your heart and sings you awake.
