magic has a bad rap these days. after all, one cannot ‘conjure’ things out of thin air, can we?
or perhaps we can?
maybe we should examine what we mean by ‘magic’, and in this case, so-called ‘white magic’.
Magic, at its core, is about getting results. There is no real modern analogue for this term. Some self-improvement circles bandy the notion of being ‘effective’, ‘real’, or ‘getting what you want’. Nice expressions, but what is REALLY happening?
1. an idea, image, or desire flashes in the mind
2. we want to see this happen in ‘reality’.
3. we effect this change (or not, depending on the case :-))
magic is about making this process seamless and efficient. Forget all the past baggage associated with this term, just concentrate on the results and the process.
magic is about consciousness and the transition from the mind into 3-d reality. The more we can make this happen, the more we ‘materialise’ … not out of thin air, but through conforming with real, practical principles.
nothing spooky about it!
