I wasn’t having the experience that I thought I should be having.

Where was the epiphany, the sudden enlightenment, the God experience?

And then the Shaman turned to me and said,

“The problem is, you’re always looking for the fantasy of magic, rather than being present to the magic that already exists in every moment.

You think that life is amazing only in the most extraordinary of moments.

You forget that life is simply amazing.

You forget that it’s all extra-ordinary.”

And so I stopped looking, seeking and chasing and became quite still…..
