Belief

First you have to believe, before you can really believe.

It has been said that those who are skeptical, who have not yet learned to open their mind or open their awareness to all that is possible, are by their very nature, less likely to witness or experience that which is magical or miraculous.

In this same way, those who are of an open mind, who are willing to accept the miraculous or mysterious, are by nature more likely to witness or experience such.

The skeptic may try to answer this with explanations, that the open-minded are fantasy-prone, or that wishful-thinking and desire clouds their perceptions. So be it. They have their own myths and beliefs to help them understand the mysterious, and it is not our place to mock their faith; much as we do not like them to scoff at ours.

On this subject, however, the belief which I share, is that the Spirits, the mysterious, magical and miraculous, simply attend those whom they find to be more receptive, more open, more accepting.

One who wishes to see the magical, or be attended by spirits, must first open their mind, and heart, to such wonders. One who expects or demands ‘proof’, without belief, will receive neither.

Hence; one must first believe, before one will really believe.

Some are born believing or raised to believe. For others, belief must be learned, developed, as preconceptions and close-mind thoughts are left behind one by one.

The mysterious, the magical, the Spirits, are all there. They are all around us. All one has to do, is invite them in.

Dr. Bleep says “…there are not nearly enough beeping, zapping, bixxerfouping, anthropomorphic synthesizer monsters in the world.”

I wholeheartedly agree, so I just ordered one for myself.
