The Magical World of Silence
To see a World in a Grain of Sand and a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the Palm of your Hand and Eternity in an hour.
– William Blake
I believe in magic. We choose to let magic appear in our lives by the way we intrinsically think, desire, live, dream and aspire. Every great dream begins with a dreamer, a believer. Roald Dahl, the famous author puts this very succinctly, ‘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.’
Unicorns are legendary creatures and have been depicted since antiquity in seals of many ancient civilizations. Most of these cultures came up with the unicorns independently. Why would they all be telling the story of a creature that was the same all over the globe? Maybe because unicorns speak to something inside of ourselves, something that believes in beauty and in magic.
When we enter our internal place and we surrender our dreams to the Universe with child-like faith, allowing it to work its creative magic, unbelievable treasures of this magical world of silence manifest themselves miraculously. Although the Universe doesn’t recognize language, it hears and responds to the emotions that we feel. We become curious observers of our own thoughts, emotions, and experiences and begin to see the alchemy, the transformation within us, recognizing that the qualities we desire are already within us. Our external world becomes a mirror of our internal world as the hypnotic, illusory effects of the materialistic realm dissolve and the formless Master Magician appears serendipitously in everything.
