Saying “YES!” to the way things are,
And working with them
To see what we can do with them
In the time left for living,
And opens us to possibilities
We never knew existed.
This is the “transcendent function” (Carl Jung)
Of imagination coming to life in our life,
And the power of Perspective Shifts
To move mountains
And to create doorways
In the walls
Boxing us in.
We all are magicians in this way.
We all are the magic wand we wish we had.
Waiting for the jailer to let us out,
We become the jailer keeping us in,
Holding the key,
Wishing we had a key.
