Magic & Logic ~ Sisters in the Dance

Magic is nothing more
and nothing less than an artful language
used by the right mind
to understand
anticipate
and to some extent control the ‘Verse

Logic is nothing more
and nothing less than a scientific language
used by the left mind
to understand
anticipate
and to some extent control the ‘Verse

Humans tend to grow proficient in the use of one and not the other
Its just easier that way
The artists, dancers, musicians create things of wondrous beauty and soul
but they seldom delight in algebra, electrical circuitry or binary programming
The programmers, technicians, logicians
create marvels of technology and science
but they seldom relinquish their hearts to love or poetry

The wizard’s path is a bit more difficult
They must be proficient in mathematics, technology and music
Must be proficient in dance, biology and love
Must be proficient in husbandry, agriculture and military martial arts

The practitioner must have a strong moral compass
lest they become lost in the fogs
Must protect that which is precious
Must be willing to walk the spine of the night
Willing to walk through the hole in the zero
Willing to walk in both darkness and light
Walk across the river while leaning into the current

And in all things remember this
by the time you are wise enough to change the weather
you will no longer want or need to

  1. “Walk through the hole in the zero” – WOW, I like that. I’m right brained for the most part. The other day someone asked me a question about my writing that I was unable to answer. The next day I realized the question came from a left brain place and rendered me incoherent.
