When eating a quiet relaxed lunch on a beach in Mexico, I had no idea that I’d experience one of the most magical things of my life.
After lunch was eaten, the local ‘Magic Man’ and I drew a crowd of locals who watched in awe and wonder as we took it in turns to entertain them with our gifts.
It became apparent very quickly that ‘magic’ and anything like it (I was bending solid objects and making them move with my mind skills), is very real in this culture.
We are talking way beyond tricks.
No psychological goings-on. No talks of sleight of hand. We performed real magic.
This was quite an emotional experience for me as I’d never experienced anything so profound before in my life. And now here I am bringing deep joy to people who, also had no idea they’d be touched by such ‘miracles’ that day.
Now consider, I did not speak the language.
This is what was most incredible of all. And it got me to thinking…
We all have gifts. But sometimes we let stupid things get in the way. The conditions might not be perfect. But we can still, with thought, with a little attention and a lot of care…deliver incredible moments to people.
I’m also concerned with how we use these powers and gifts we have. These people really believed I could predict the future. Is that okay for them to believe that, rather than know it’s not real? Or is the shattering of such an illusion (without revealing my modus operandi) just as damaging?
It’s something I’d like your opinion on, comment below. I always reply 🙂
