The Magic in Magical Thinking
- First you look outside for Truth/Love/Bliss/Wisdom/etc.
You look at material things, relationships, concepts,
things to touch physically, emotionally, and mentally,
and other "stuff". At best, these all bring a temporary
"good", and then inevitably a sort of "not so good" or even...
"bad". Then you look within and find that even incredibly
wonderful physical or emotional feelings fade away and end,
as do mental revelations no matter how lofty and uplifting
these experiences are. Then you look to see who has been
having these events occur and who has been doing the looking.
And then when "you" can't be found, you do find all that
has always been, and is, and will always be; loving, conscious,
aware, and unlimited by labels, time or space, unaffected by
all without or within, yet their basis as is the ocean to all
of it's drops.
And all the ???'s become ! and "You" live happily ever after.
