Born into magic

Leave a comment

Some people are born into money, I feel I was born into magic. It is the magic that makes me go ‘holy shit, there is so much more to life than meets the eye’. Lets just agree that there is more to life than life itself, there is a multitude of magic, that heals the years of the bitter sweet, and challenges the notion that we are mere cogs in the wheel of a giant machine. One of my favorite things to do is to stare into my lover’s eyes, and feel the world melt, this is magic, as much as an encounter with a a bear, or a wolf, or an owl, and Monk seal is magic. There is a plethora of magic available to us, unending really, and when I am aligned with my heart I am more inclined to experience the magic. Phenomenal it is to be alive, present, aware of the sky above as the clouds weave a tapestry and an eagle looks down and wonders what it would be like to walk, or swim, or ride a bike. Life is a precious thing, every single moment, the good, the bad, the light, the dark, the moon, the sun, your mother, your father, your lover, the animal companion, the stars in the night sky.
