A mist is like an unfound thought. It hovers about, concealing what could be witnessed, only to thin and reveal such beauty when the time is right.
Many things we see in life are covered by mist. It is a cloud that needs to only be thinned enough to recognize the structure behind it. This is the sphere of illusion.
Subtle reminders are everywhere. Sight, sounds, smell of the air, the touch and taste of it all is at arms length. Only a few choose to experience fully; to grab hold of the man behind the curtain and learn of his magic. Upon everything rests an illusion that one can follow into the desert of the mind, or not.
We’ve all experienced this. What you first see, think or feel can be compounded by a barrage of thought, doubt and skepticism. Perhaps this was the fleeting feeling that you first experienced before entering a certain door, answering a phone call, or speaking to someone for the first time. The sphere of illusion can cause havoc, or be cleared by visualizing with the soul.
This is a protective instinct of all human beings. We assess situations and threats quickly and cognitively because we are wired to survive. But what happens when we choose to see only mist?
Answer: Blindness… What is truly able to be be witnessed will only be experienced when the person is ready to acknowledge it. For instance: If you see a building, you know its there. You see its physical structure, you can approximate its height and width. You can see its doors, windows and foundation. But, until you walk through the door and explore the building, it does not exist; it is simply still, only a picture in your mind.
See through the mist of illusion; through the fog of deafening bravado. Experience life for all its glory. Once you uncover the magic of the man behind the curtain, the simplicity of beauty will shock the mind, inspire the heart, and you will live in the moment… But you must discover this on your own, the curtain cannot be taken down for you.
The sphere of illusion can be all encompassing, but needs only a gentle breeze to blow it aside and reveal the truth.
