Embracing Enchantment

Good Morning, God!

The other day, as I was doing Centering Prayer, I invited whoever wished to come up out of my Inner Dungeon to appear. Immediately there stood before me — in my Mind’s Eye — a woman who introduced herself as The Magician.

Magician? I was totally surprised! I had been firmly taught to avoid magic and witches etc. But, there she was. I was assured it wasn’t about Black Magic or White Magic — but rather High Magic. Magic as in the books of C.S. Lewis.

That was reassuring! Still, a Magician? In me? Part of me? Hmm.

So, I’ve been pondering. So far I have two insights. In today’s world magicians influence WHAT the audience focuses on. By being enticed to SEE one thing we MISS another. I thought, OH! Perhaps my magician is to help me SEE what You might want me to see. . . to help me focus . . . to help me stop missing things. I LIKE THAT!

The second insight is more societal. For several centuries we’ve been in the Age of Enlightenment where REASON RULES and values Control and Predictability. Very little room was made for You and the inexplicable . . the miraculous. But, now Science is moving into Quantum Physics. And that increased understanding is inviting us back into Mystery . . . and Wonder . . .and Awe.

We are not designed to live by Reason alone. We need ENCHANTMENT. We need to dwell in the ever so REAL Cosmos where surprises are everywhere. Where synchronicity happens. And a pause to admire flowers can connect us to You.
