Day 5.141 Magic
The power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces.
(Please) take a closer look at that definition.
It ain't hocus-pocus, presto-chango tap of the wand.
It ain't about the mysterious nor the supernatural.
It ain't about illusion, smoke and mirrors or distraction.
I have been convinced that magic is available to us all, all the time. Even Muggles.
We witnessed and then rehearsed a little of it last night. And no, it had nothing to do with sex.
We witnessed the magic of the moment. The eternal opportunity to become so fully connected and present that a enormously powerful dynamic is created.
A simple matter of aligning the body with the mind at high intensity. The result of this synchronicity almost always allows the inclusion of spirit.
And then you got it. Abracadabra.
Mind, body and spirit. Doing one thing. Doing that thing well, doing that thing with the sole purpose of engaging with a state of harmony and power, peace and satori.
The same magic that we find in practice we perfect in the show. BECAUSE THEY ARE THE SAME. What you do in practice preps us for the main event, be that an oratory, presentation, competition or recital. How we practice is how we play. Bike or bassoon, marathon or telethon.
There is magic in the moment.
Where else could it be?
