What is magic?
The feeling you get when on a roller-coaster and cant decide whether your flying or falling?
Seeing the light fade from their eyes for the last time
Burning the pieces of paper and feeling a weight lifted
A song that lifts your spirits and brings tears
A poem that touches you deep enough to leave a wound that bleeds
holding and being held when you both feel like falling
A deep belief that you can’t explain but know to be true
The light at the end of a long dark tunnel
The day after the dark night
Cool winter after a blistering summer
Soothing mint on dry blistered skin
A balm for a broken heart
Magic is words, actions deeds… anything that heals, teaches or changes.
Not to be too poetic though, its what we do that causes change and moves the wheel along. Words we say or things we do with intent to harm or to heal. Whether we know it or not, we all have that power its just our choice to acknowledge it or not.
Intent is truly meaningless in the long run, whether we mean to harm or heal , whatever choices we make, we know that they have consequences that we have to live with.
I don’t live by the rede or the rule of three. I live with consequences, you sow and you reap.
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Even lore tells us that just because we can do something, doesn’t mean we should.
Take care in all our actions magical and mundane, for all of them have consequences, good and bad no matter the intent or thought behind them.
