Mysterious Power

The Magic Man

Holder of mysterious power, the tools and intelligence of creation,
he contains all knowledge of how to create. 
He is the bridge between consciousness and form. 
He moulds the world in the image of his choosing.
The world is the work of one great Magician – the play of the real and unreal. 
One is the Master; 
the other is his own trick, the illusion that one is not the Master.
Alert and watchful, I looked closely for the signs and tools of creation.

Isira “Buddha on the Dance Floor.” Living Awareness, 2015.

"Try to be mindful, & let things take their natural course.
Then your mind will become still in any surroundings, like a clear forest pool.
All kinds of wonderful, rare animals will come to drink at the pool,
and you will clearly see the nature of all things.
You will see many strange & wonderful things come & go,
but you will be still.
This is the happiness of the Buddha*."
