Deepak says that in
his home country of India, it is not unusual to believe in wizards;
that most people do. However he defines a wizard as someone that not
only can simply perform magic but someone who can cause
transformation. "A wizard can carry you beyond limitations into the
Deepak states that
a wizard exists in all of us. I agree. That 'wizard' is often called
by different names, but it could be described as one who has learned
to use the energy of the All that Is that surrounds us.
We also remember
that Merlyn the wizard lived in a crystal cave. Perhaps that was the
basis for my love of crystals of all kinds, and my home here in
Florida is truly surrounded by crystals inside and out. There is a
nearby town that is alleged to be an energy vortex, that also alleges
it sits on top of huge buried crystals.
We in the 21st
century know that crystals are indeed natural amplifiers of energy,
and crystals are used in all manner of material items on our planet at
this time. However, when these tales of Arthur and Merlyn and the
crystal cave began to be told so many hundreds of years ago, no such
common knowledge existed!
So we mull this
question over in our minds; does magic really exist? Did wizards
really exist? Is it possible that the great and marvelous Merlyn
truly did exist? Is it possible that there was a man who lived long
ago, that was so in touch with the energy of the All That Is that
surrounds each and every one of us at all times, that he began to
learn to use this energy in a positive way? We know that our modern
day marvels would appear to be witch craft to those who lived any time
prior to the late 1900's. Surely someone so in touch with the energy
of the life force might be called a wizard in that time. It is my
speculation that this man did indeed exist; that he was a thousand
years or more ahead of his time in his understanding of the
There are such men
and women alive today that are becoming wizards in their own right, as
they rediscover the natural energies that surround us all, and learn
to manifest their desires from their internal to their external.
Books and movies such as the Secret and the highly publicized speakers
associated with this book and other similar books are not really
telling us anything new. This knowledge has been circling the earth
in what could be called the Belt of Knowledge for ions. Anyone, at
anytime, can access this knowledge, and it has always been so.
These people who
are now accessing this energy and knowledge are you and me. Should we
call ourselves wizards? I think perhaps that should I ever learn to
become invisible (sans the use of Harry Potter's invisibility cloak)
as I have wanted to learn to do since I was a child; I should then
perhaps properly call myself a wizard.
A few months ago, a
tiny black angora kitten came into our lives. I was doing psychic
astrology readings at a place called Merlin's Mercantile here in Palm
Coast at the time. The owners of the store were looking for a home
for him, so he became part of our family that very day and I named him
Merlyn came into
our lives as we were especially struggling to make our adjustments
here in our new environment. He was here for my first birthday here,
the first Christmas here and the first New Year's Eve here, without
our friends and family. He brought smiles and laughter, and cuddles
and love into our lives.
Merlyn teaches love and acceptance. He is a little wizard cat, that
helped us through some difficult days with his love.
I have always loved
Merlin the Wizard, and now I love this kitten named after this great
master. Most of all I love what this great wizard stood for;
