In preparation for this weekend’s course, I have reflected upon what one could consider the mystery and magic in life. For some, ” magick ” is the active belief that the forces of Nature can be accessed through the use of certain rites, formulas or behaviours. These forces are considered preternatural and supernatural. Preternatural forces exceed or diverge from the common order observable in Nature, yet remain connected and within the known frame of natural laws. Examples of this include colours, sounds, scents, the elements in nature etc. Supernatural forces are neither bound nor explained by known natural laws. They are usually attributed to a divine force or order. They pertain to the ultimate essential reality – the dimension we call Spirit, Source or the Divine.
Healing Magic is the force for positive transformation and empowerment, which naturally reflects a blend of the physical and metaphysical. In this model, health is understood as a natural harmony of Body, Mind and Spirit and a balanced relationship between the mundane and the Divine realms of energy.
Mystery is a wonderment in the ways of the world, universe and our placement in them. It requires Faith in the existence of a Divine Being and a Divine Plan even though not all is revealed to us at this time. Mystery means having a connection with Divinity. The Mystic!
“The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the foundation of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.
To know that what is inconceivable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom, as the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive form — this knowledge, this feeling, is at the centre of true religiousness.”
Quote from Albert Einstein
May the mystery and magic of life be with you always!
