The Tao of Magic
What path should you follow to lead a magical life? What is the Tao of Magic? Curiosity and mindfulness. The magic I’m talking about is not hocus pocus and magic wands- it’s finding beauty and miracles in the world around you.
The Tao of Magic is to live with a childlike sense of wonder- notice the shadows on the ground from the clouds and the way water drips down your window pane in a rainstorm. These are truly magical moments and they’ll lead to a longer life because you’ll be living in the flow instead of waiting for the next thing.
Out world is a magical, wonderful place. All you have to do is open up your eyes:
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it
So the next time you are walking the same walk to work, or even just from your bedroom to the kitchen, be mindful, be curious. What will be waiting for you in the shadows? What will you see that you never saw before? Where is the magic hiding in your life?
Just because we are all grown up doesn’t mean that we have to live in a world without magic. Now that we are adults and have real problems and real work we need magic far more than we ever needed it as kids. Let your imagination roam freely, allow yourself to question everything and then you will be on the path, on the Tao of Magic.
