Remember The Magic!

Remember The Magic - it was created for you!

                                          -Rhonda Byrne

The magic of life is evident in that we receive a brand new day every single day! If eternity and immortality are unimaginable subjects, the change of day into night into day should give you an idea of it all!

And even more convincing of the resplendent nature of this Universe is that each day holds beauty and bounty, surprises and coincidences, light and dark that is completely and utterly unqiue to the day itself!

Sure, every morning has us up and about from bed, with a brush in our hand and the smell of toothpaste in the air. Maybe its the same turn of the tap, the same routine of hot water gushing out of the showers( or freezing cold water from a tap in my case). But the new- ness is there if we just choose to look at it. We did not start the previous day with the same things on our mind yesterday;

what happened yesteday changes our today which results in a completely unique day every day; the events of yesterday shape our thoughts and in turn, our world for the next day.

Our hopes and wishes change with every second in passing. We want something different than what we did yesterday. We know more, we have seen more and been more than we have ever been before!( Yay! That rhymed!)

And the best way to start a 'today' is to Remember the best bits of yesterday! Going back through the myriad of experiences of the day before is a fascinating journey, one that will yield fruits that would have otherwise not been recognised.

The thing about looking at the events of the day before is that you give enough time to pass after events, particularly startling ones that pulled you completely out of your comfort zone.

These incidents seem dreary immediately ; but with a bit of time, our minds will open themselves to the magnificent bits, the funny bits, the enlightening insights and the true purpose of the incident.

This is why Remember the Magic is so potent a practice.

You will realize the best of the previous day, finding the beauty in the previously thought ugly and come out wiser and happier. You will come out with satisfaction for the day that you had and with anticipation for the day ahead.

Going through the day before, extract the best moments in the entire day. Find every single event and give your heartfelt thanks to it all! Write it down with details or just go through it in your mind.

I love this practice mainly because it is so easy! Not only do I feel insanely good when I finish up, I also intentionally declare my will for the day!( to surpass all known limits of awesomeness that previously existed!)

Sometimes, I remember a particularly amazing meal( food is a priority as always) or a a really warm compliment. It might be a really simple thing, like an amazing night's sleep or something out of the ordinary, like a dare gone wild! The mysteries and the extraordinaries overlap with the comfort and warmth and produce a magical picture of the previous day, mine to hold forever and more!( or until the next morning when an even more mind blowing day's events take up my brain space!)

Remember The Magic is the last practice in The Magic. And its not goodbye.

 You just go back and start over again! That is what I did. Or one can choose a practice a day or even choose a completely different adventure to go on. But without a doubt, this book opened a world I would not have known existed for me. And the doors that have opened, even more unimaginably so! Perspectives have changed and new beliefs have dawned. And I have gone all out crazy , with no limits holding me down!

Ultimate freedom or what?

Day 28:

I am grateful for having gotten to draw water from a well because the plop! and the whoosh whoosh whoosh! and the swish splash! was all so much fun!

I am grateful for mysterious outlooks and secret incidents that are so pleasing and hot and cold all at the same time and deliciously so!

I am grateful for the strength and power to lend a helping hand to friends in need of support , no matter how small the gesture because giving is an utter joy!

 

I am grateful for there always being not just one 'way but a ton of great alternatives to everything in life which takes life to new dimensions of perfection!

I am grateful for the cones in my retina thst show me the world in all of its colorful glory!

I am grateful the self healing mechanism of my body that rejuvenates and regenerates every part of my body, giving me a brand new radiant work of efficiency and cutting edge awesomeness every once in awhile!

I am grateful for it being festive season, with Christmas around the corner and a completely brand new year full of exciting possibilites just a bit more further around because to celebrate life is to live in paradise!

I am grateful for the people who collect my trash every single day, leaving behind clean pure amazing goodness for me to wallow in!

I am grateful for being able to help so many people in so many different ways because to share and give joy is the most brilliant thing in life, ever!

I am grateful for the upcoming Christmas vacation plans because I get to see all of my family and relatives during this beautiful time of the year!

Ventures into Love - Day 12

Here’s how life is supposed to work; how we are taught that the world works, how we are supposed to integrate into the mayhem: Dream big. Work for it. Be bold. Go for it NOW. Have a vision. Break the steps down into bite sized pieces and keep making progress every single day. I am actually feeling slightly breathless, just typing those words. The thing is, this kind of pushing and prodding, this complete reliance over one's willpower that stems from the brain and it’s storehouse of experiences filtered through beliefs that alter the experience to a nutshell of what really is, is frankly exhausting. Sure, when we face a particularly trying situation or we are subject to an enrapturing inspiring speech, we feel charged up and energetic. We feel like we have so much to offer, so much that we can do, so much energy to run all the way to the top, that we enthusiastically take steps, turn over new stones, meet people, network and feel euphoric. For some time, that is. Eventu

Ventures Into Love: Day 8

Sometimes, our traps are so simple. The keys to these traps can be right there and yet, we fail to see them. Until we do. And realise that there was no need for repairs from the outside. It was us the whole damn time.  For me, the last practice( playing the detective) was mind boggling because I am now discovering so many words that I use which don’t serve me in the very least. And the fun part is so fun: choosing a new thought along the lines of a belief that is better suited for me is so much better than shopping! Today’s activity goes into this very same practice with a more specific goal at heart; to identify and change a story you are telling. This might be any kind of a story – a story that explains and justifies why you are the way you are, or a story that makes it okay for you to not be happier, a story that you think is true of yourself a story you feel trapped by, a story of neglect, a story for lack of compassion – that you tell to yourself or to others. Basically,

It's okay.

It’s okay. It’s okay to try and not get it right. It’s okay to not even try in the first place. It’s okay to hold on real tight and you don’t want to let go even though you know it hurts.  It’s okay to love the wrong things. It’s okay to love the right things. It’s okay to be confused about life. It’s okay to feel proud of your saunter. It’s okay to hate your life too. It’s okay to want to change. It’s okay to want to stay exactly as you are. It’s okay to want to leave. Its okay to never want to leave. It’s okay to feel annoyed. It’s okay to feel happy doing nothing. It’s okay to want to do something. It’s okay to want help. It’s okay to not want to take help. It’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to be selfless. It’s okay to love with abandon. It’s okay to not want to love with abandon. It’s okay to be afraid of the dark. It’s okay to like being in the dark too. It’s okay to be afraid of facing the light. It’s okay if you can’t find the light. It’s okay if you wan
