Write down your brushes with the mysterious
What are the so-called ‘Mysteries’ anyway, except those things which you don’t really quite understand yet? Dealing with magic, dealing with the seen, the unseen – the seven realms of existence, all of these things are not so very mysterious once you know how. Cooking can be a mystery until you know the secret of the proper measurements and temperature, to turn out something that nourishes. Building a fire can be a mystery to those who have never done so a’fore and yet, fire possesses it’s own magic and mystery that goes far beyond the initial ignition of it.
Experiencing the Mystery, the true Mystery of life is mostly found just in the act of living. That is no profound philosophical pronouncement on my part; it’s the simple and honest truth. Anyone can talk with the dead. All you need to do is just say “Hello”. Anyone can make their dreams come true – they need to merely focus on what it is they want and set about If you are turned aside, again, that is a choice, isn’t it?
Life is a Mystery – and it’s a glorious one that dares us to have the will to seek out and to investigate the Mysteries, embrace them and call them our own. Those who understand a Mystery – no matter which one it is, don’t really need to talk about it. They just incorporate its understanding into themselves.
In other words, they become that which is considered Mysterious.
