Magic Lives Here 💫

Right Here! You don't need to go to an ashram, or the Magic Palace or some distant, vast landscape to see the Grace of this moment. Whether you're sitting at home, laying in bed, scrolling on the bus, or literally anything else, a deep, full breath will guide you back into the absolute magic and perfection of Right Now.

The present moment tends to get a bad wrap. It's seemingly, often, not exciting or flashy--and of course includes those "passing" moments between things, from sitting on the pot, to waiting for the other pot to boil.

Dan Millman writes in "No Ordinary Moments" : "There is no need to search . . . achievement leads nowhere . . . makes no difference at all. Just be happy now. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world. No need to resist life. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you think. You are already free." The magic of life is in every single heart beat, flap of a bird's wings, every smile and in every tear, in every full and also hungry belly the magic is ceaseless.

It seems like our almost natural state is to fight with life. The other political party is wrong, the corporations are wrong, the people who use plastic or eat meat or are not this color or this shape are wrong. Everything but OUR way is wrong.

But remember there is no inherent "right" or "wrong" in nature. It's just the simple "IS-ness" of forms. It's our wild minds that have all these opinions and judgments.

I'm of course not asserting that you're wrong for having beliefs or think that we should take care of the environment. Have beliefs, and fight for what is important. AND, Remember, you are not right or wrong. There is an intelligence that is beyond us. A magic that is necessarily unknowable that evades us. So I ask that you trust just a little bit more. Accept life and circumstance a little bit more. Soften your body and mind into what is. We are largely the creators of our own suffering. So, don't always listen to what your mind is telling you.
