The Magical Playground

The Magical Playground


For quite some time now, I have been intrigued by the word magic, in the sense that life can be magical, fun and exciting. It has led to an ongoing and I hope never-ending inquiry. What if you saw your life as a Magical Playground?  Certainly you would be excited about your life.

In my new book, The Soul of Uncertainty, A Fable for our Times, I explore this mind shift, in a conversation that Mervin, the modern-day mystic has with Buddy, our hero.

“Imagine thinking of your life as a ‘magical
playground,’ a life in which you are in the moment, flowing
with what is, dancing on the river of life’s adventure.
This playground starts in your mind. It’s in how you
think. Imagine you are about to enter a whole new world of
creation and of possibility. Of course, you enter at your own
risk. You’ll never be the same again.”

“To remind you how amazing this could be, see the
following words written in white on a poster board with a black background surrounded by gold trim.”

-To dare again -To dream again
-To feel enjoyment and happiness again, or perhaps for the very first time.
-To realize this is living.”

What Mervin describes is exactly how Buddy wants to feel, yet he is daunted by the uncertainty facing him just like most of us are.

Mervin continues, “What if there was this uncertainty? That’s the
way it’s always going to be, and adds to the mystery of life.”

“My mind-tripping was interrupted by Mervin’s next
comments, Perhaps you know what Shakespeare wrote in
As You Like It.

I have to confess that I didn’t, but I didn’t want to sound
stupid so I nodded. In all honesty, I hadn’t read any of
Shakespeare’s works even though I had spent two years in
Ashland, Oregon, at U-CURE.”

All the world’s a stage.
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts.

“Whatever stage you are playing on now, each of you
has already played many parts in your life’s journey, and
I’m sure you’ll play many more. Each role has its own
unique set of rules, language, rituals and costumes.

Whatever role you are playing now, there certainly wiil be another part waiting for you to explore. From where you are standing now, there is no way of knowing what that might be. I’m constantly surprised.”

What if you played adventurer? Do you think you
might have more fun? Choose to see your future as
an exciting adventure of discovery.

Enjoy the great adventure, this great mystery called LIFE. There is no better time than now.
