“Surrender to the way things want to happen next, even though this often involves a vast and terrifying loss of control. Trust the magic that was born into your soul.” ~Martha Beck, Finding Your Way in a Wild New World
There’s a lot of research explaining why some people don’t enjoy horror films or ghost stories — or anything else in which things appear to be manipulated by unseen forces. If you fit this psychological profile, you’re probably the sort of person who likes to remain “in control” most of the time. Chances are, you’re also the person who’s trying to figure out exactly how the magician is performing his tricks onstage.
As today’s quote reminds us, “magic” happens when we’re willing to sit back and enjoy the show; when we surrender to the way life unfolds. Beautiful moments can occur when we don’t expect them — without our intervention. ~Cindy La Ferle
