Feeling good is your magic power.
I used to love fantasy stories as a kid, and even as I grew up I longed to find magic in the real world.
Eventually I grew disenchanted, and sought my magic in spiritual teachings instead.
But I’ve found my magic power after all. It’s called feeling good, and though I’m only a novice at it I can already see the effects of this magic in myself and in my world.
If I could go back in time I would teach my younger self exactly what I’m learning now.
Feeling good is the key; practice reaching for thoughts that feel good, no matter what the circumstances.
My favourite thing to do right now is to sit and simply feel good.
Well I say “simply” but I’m also aware that by feeling good I’m allowing this magic to spread within myself and through the farthest reaches of my reality.
In untold and mysterious ways, my feeling good benefits and improves everything and everyone around me.
My feeling good works magic on the whole of life, because in fact it is “life” itself that causes the good feeling in me.
It might make more sense to some readers if instead of “feeling good” I called it meditation or contemplative prayer.
All those monks and nuns and hermits and spiritual people around the world, sitting daily or on their knees communing with God or drawing on the great reserve of love and compassion and radiating it out to the entire world: they know what they’re doing is magical. They feel their part in the deep wellspring of peace and joy that flows to all of us, even if we are not ready to receive it.
Do you know that what we call God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and exists outside of time and space? So when we pray or meditate on this pure Being we participate in something totally transcendent.
And at the same time we allow that totally transcendent Being of pure love to participate in us and in our reality.
That is why this practice feels so good that it might as well be magic.
