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,

Transforms everything,

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.
