“I should have mentioned that the supernatural might at any moment create news myths, but I was timid.” –W. B. Yeats.
And who might the supernatural be? Look in the mirror. Then live out your imagination without restraint.
This is how worlds and universes are created.
“Seekers are never lost, because spirit is always beckoning to them,” writes Deepak Chopra in The Way of the Wizard.
Eric Pepin, in his Handbook of the Navigator books, likens this to salmon unerringly swimming from far out in the ocean to a stream to spawn. When the Star Wars movie series began, people resonated to the concept of “the force,” while others said we are forever attuned to “God’s thoughts.”
If we are seekers on the path, what might the difference be between lost and found?
Perhaps there is no difference, but only the perception of one until we reach the point in our journey toward the light where we are finally ready to integrate pairs of opposites.
We often toss around the phrase “you create your own reality” without asking whether or not we truly believe in the concept.
If, as Yoga Vasistha taught, there is nothing “out there,” then everything we see, taste, touch, smell and feel is ourselves. When we say “yes” to that, are we thinking symbolically? Are we thinking of attitudes and feelings but not bricks, mortar and day to day events? Perhaps only the brave are willing to consider that the “outer” world is a mirror of the “inner” world.
I like the way Paulo Coelho put it in his book Warrior of the Light: “The warrior of the Light concentrates on the small miracles of daily life. He is capable of seeing what is beautiful because he carries beauty within himself, for the world is a mirror and gives back to each man the reflection of his own face.”
You have heard the old phrase, “If wishes were horses beggars would ride.”
Let’s suppose, figuratively speaking, that wishes actually are horses. Or, if you prefer, motorcycles or spaceships or transporters out of “Star Trek.”
Then we might say that if you desire joy, that is what you’ll have.
