The greatest Magic of all

Magic appears to us most commonly in the form of Luck and Coincidence. The practice of Magic is the art of drawing these principles to us by intent. Thus allowing us to recognize and use these forces as they come into our lives.

Magic, by its very nature, is mysterious and Real Magic unfolds itself into our lives when life is lived in a certain way

What is the greatest Magic of all?

For example; there is the Magic of the artist. Songs can cheer us or make us sad. They can make us laugh, inspire soldiers into battle and strike fear into the enemy. The same can be said of poetry or a painting even sculpture. Images have inspired people to worship their deity and have filled others with destructive rage. The magic of the artist is extremely powerful.

Then there is the magic of those who seek the spirit, the soul behind all existence. These are the people who, like Shakespeare, see “Sermons in stones, books in running brooks.”

To them, all things are sacred. From the values of the ancestors to the hugging of trees. They value all life. When the developer says he will move a mountain, they let us know that the mountain is perfect just as it is.

Then there is the magic of those who can shape reality. Real Magic.

There is a lot more to be said about the Magics mentioned. Each one deserves a number of articles to itself. The secrets of them all can be found in old tales, carefully read and experienced. The obvious question then;

What is the greatest Magic of all?

Some would say it’s Love. But Love is a principle, an emotion. Yes its effect can seem to work magic. Love can conquer many things and turn the hardest of hearts to kindness and compassion. Is this Magic? Not necessarily.

Even if we agree that Love is Magic. Is it the greatest Magic? What about Hate? Love may certainly be more desirable but is it more powerful? Where Love builds, Hate destroys. Where Love will elevate, Hate will drag down. Hate can be just as powerful a force as Love. So is Love the greatest Magic of all?

Even if the question of hate, or any other virtue or vice, is ignored the question still arises;

What was the Magic that created Love?

Here are two questions that have the same answer.

What is the greatest magic of all?

Where was the universe before it was created?

In the video I tell one of my favorite stories. It has the answers but, as with all good jokes, it’s not the same if it has to be explained. You’ve got to get it.

I like this. I think love is only a by-product of searching for the true magic. It also seems that before shaping reality, one must accept it. Acceptance and Intent oscillate in a pendulum, though I'm intellectualizing already:)
