I have spent the early part of my Journey seeking to study ‘Magic’, actively looking for Teachers to satisfy my insatiable curiosity… I wanted to know all the deepest secrets – “how things work… what makes them tick… and , above all, WHY…?!” … and in my (not so innocent) youth, thought that ‘Magic’ would, finally, grant my answers. Well, it didn’t quite work out that way… you see, the more answers you get, the more questions arise… (it’s truly never-ending – but the Journey was fun).
So, in my quest, I studied with great Shamans, Medicine Men(and Women), Spiritual Teachers of different Lineages… and they all demanded that I first master two things:
1) Learn how to Meditate… for it would grant me Peace, and teach me to be Still.
2) Learn how to Heal… for in any ‘search for Power, it is too easy to hurt another’
And so my Journey went forth, bringing me more information than I ever thought possible… and here’s the most important thing I learned:
Pain and sorrow, grief and tears, are unfortunately far too common in Life… Man is NOT the wonderful Enlightened Being he believes himself to be… he stumbles around, unconscious of the hateful thoughts and dismissive words that he casts so easily around him… and how often these hurt another… especially those sensitive of Heart.
While many may say, “This may well be… but certainly I do not…” to them I would ask, “Have you not watched the News recently… and had you not a strong response… Be aware that even a Thought is Power Projected… and, whatever you send forth, so it shall come back to you…”
So my training progressed – a bit of study on Magic, and a lot of study on Healing… until, finally I understood Why…
We are all ‘Beings of Power’, yet most is locked in our pain and sorrow… and only once we are fully integrated, will we be granted access to our own Gifts, and only now able to craft a Life of Love and Wonder… to do otherwise is to risk becoming a Black Magician…
