“The hope of the world lies in the restoration of the ancient magic that is part of your lineage.” ~  Steve Nelson

Yes, yes, yes!

So much of what we’re doing is re-discovering the magic of place, of Life, of our own beings, and the magic in all that’s around us.

The magic that nearly gets snuffed out of us early on. The magic that has been ignored by a perceptual worldview that ‘everything else’ is just inert ‘stuff’ that’s for our perpetual consumption.

Thanks to my friend Molly Hall for sharing Jon’s post with me, and thanks to Jon for writing it … particularly the bit about the “inoculation of reality aimed at suppressing magic.”

And so we remember it …

Big Love,
Jamie

“The function of the artist is to provide what life does not.” —Tom Robbins, Another Roadside Attraction

“Those people who recognize that imagination is reality’s master we call ‘sages,’ and those who act upon it, we call ‘artists.’” —Tom Robbins, Skinny Legs and All

In the human psyche, from the moment a newborn baby emerges into the light of day, he/she has a desire for magic.

We are told this is an early fetish that fades away as the experience of the world sets in. As maturity evolves. As practical reality is better understood.

In truth, the desire for magic never goes away, and…

Seems like it’s always a fine time to center into the everyday  magic of kindness, simple things (a.k.a. what Dorothy Day called ‘the little work’), and other ‘revolutionary acts’.

See what stirs for you …

From what I’m hearing, seeing around me, and experiencing myself in various ways, it sounds like a lot of us are feeling the psychic-energetic rollercoaster these days.

Many now are feeling the influences of the steamy fiery trine in cahoots with the very lunar, watery, highly sensitizing, boundary- (and structure-) dissolving Pisces-Neptune frequencies, too, where the pre-fab, ‘should do’ agenda goes right out the window.

There are days like this, and plenty of them in these ‘transformation times’ of ours.

If I’ve done my usual energy ‘tracking’ and clearing approaches to clear out the funk, and the funk (or fiery anger) is still there … well, maybe it’s just one of those days when it’s wisest to flow with and open to the mysteries of the energy that’s present.
