The Case for Believing in Magic

on Jun 11, 2018 in Inspiration

We are called upon to believe. We have to believe that there is something more to us than the physical that we see around us. We have to believe that there is something inside of us that defies the laws of logic and boundaries. And that we can call upon that to push through and chase that dream, achieve that goal, hush the naysayers that take pleasure in telling us what cannot be done.

My friends, if it was logical than maybe it would not be worth it. What magic is driving you to do what it is that you do? To dare? To dream? To move? To become. It is the prayers of a great grandmother that wanted you to move the mountains that she did not pass in her own journey? Is it the colors of the wind that leads you to gaze upon a distant horizon with a spirit of wanting? Is it the force that is telling you to trust it, that it’s inside of you, already guiding you? Is it a spirit guide that simply points the way and tells you to go?

We have to believe in the myths, the stories, the passion… that which others would deem impossible or illogical or foolishness. For I tell you this, if it were not for the magic beyond the physical limitations of this world, would life be worth it for you? If you could not dream? If you could not dare? If you could not believe? Or color far outside the lines?

We think we are alone but we are the drivers of our own stories and the more we step into who we are, our self and the world is more better for it. What good is it to simply stay quiet, daydreaming about what might be? When instead you can loosen the reigns on what you thought you can do, and take a leap of…. faith?

Do not bide away your time grasping a security that seems solid but can really slip through your fingers like grains of sand. Dare. Dare greatly. Rise, fall, and do so gracefully, leaning into your tumbles just as you do towards the horizon. Your life is the dance. Your life is the wave. Don’t wait for someone else to tell you to move. That decision has been and will always be yours.

No matter how you look at it, life is ultimately too short. What will you do with yours? What will you do tomorrow?
