So we’ve discussed Destiny and Karma. So how about Magic? I read a great definition once about magic(which incidentally I looked up but couldn’t find ) and I believe it was by Dion Fortune (but I could be wrong??!!) that defined magic as “The art of changing conciousness at will”
Which made me think about what happens when I sit down at the computer (or note-book or even when I’m just off in my own universe visualising a scene out of my characters lives) it’s as though time in the so-called “real world” has stopped altogether and I am elsewhere in some other realm creating lives in parallel universes or totally different universes, spinning, weaving ,controlling what occurs . In a sense, I control that universe or at least play Destiny myself. I create the destiny, the serendipity, the karma for my world within. It sure feels like magic.
On the oppposite side , it’s just as much a change in conciousness when I’m reading. Again, I’m transported but this time as an observer,or even as a friend, if I really love the book and it’s characters. I can be as refreshed when I return from this elsewhere as if I’ve been asleep or on holidays ( or sometimes as drained as if I’ve just climbed a mountain…..)
What do you all think?Is reading and writing a form of magic? Can it change your conciousness? How does it work for you?
