The Magic Glasses
Who has the magic glasses? Do you have on the magic glasses?
Are you able to see – without trying – things that easily seem to bypass the eyes of most folks?
Do you find it increasingly difficult to ignore or overlook such things, or pretend you didn't see them?
Do you understand how real what you're seeing is? Can you sense its significance?
If you can answer “yes” to these questions, you're wearing the magic glasses. No, these aren't exactly like the ones featured in the film “They Live”. They don't sit on your face, and they can't be taken off. They can't be bought, and they can't be sold either! So... if you got 'em, you might as well start learning to adjust. They can't be put on, or taken off, any more than one can throw away their memories, or desires.
Life with the magic glasses isn't tough really, but it is “different”, and always interesting. It isn't demanding, but it does encourage growth through taking an active involvement in life. (With magic glasses, status quo expectations and concepts of success fail to satisfy.) Those of us wearing magic glasses won't get far by accepting or supporting what's revealed to be false. Everyone with magic glasses on is being called to lead in some capacity.
When you have the magic glasses on, do yourself a favor: don't deny or hide from what you know to be true! They may seem to be a curse at times, but they are a wonderful gift. They invite one to experience a deeper, more meaningful life, even if that means confronting the occasional conflicts or uncertainties. If you have the magic glasses on, you can't afford to lie. This is the moment for what is real to be revealed to all, after all.
So, as the saying goes: don't attack the messenger; accept the message. (That's how its going today...) Don't fight the magic glasses. Embrace them, and the enhanced super vision they bring with them!
