The Adventure of the Conscious Creative
“The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up” — Paul Valery
Stories of magic and mystery permeate our cultural history, and have fascinated children and adults for untold generations. Fairy tales and mythologies are full of examples of powerful people who have the ability to generate new objects and realities out of thin air. These legends are not just recorded in our cultural history, but these archetypical figures live in our collective consciousness and populate our dreams.
There is a nugget of truth hidden inside all of these tales — the magi in these stories are ordinary people who have discovered an incredible power. They know what all of us should know: we are all natural magicians. We should know it because it is a truth that is manifest in unequivocal evidence all around us: we modify our environments and create the world in which we live…
Think about the idea of releasing the wondrous power that resides within you. What if we are not Aladdin making wishes by rubbing a lamp, but instead, we are the Genie granting those wishes to ourselves? Does this idea frighten or excite you?
