Do you believe in magic or in love?
The understanding of miracles as spectacles to induce belief is a misunderstanding of their purpose. T-1.1.10:1
People love magic shows. They are mesmerized, enthralled, amazed, and entertained. When magic is used to induce belief in the characteristics of our Transcendent Source, though, it is questionable and an attitude of skepticism is appropriate and warranted.
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step one, that we admit that our lives are often unmanageable and no amount of magic is going to set them right.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning and the use of magic may not be responsible.
Today, it is suggested that we attend to a shift in our perception and attention from the world of magic to the world of Spirit which is Love. Love is the miracle not magical powers in the world of the ego.
