Although I left the book ‘Brida’ in the hands of a lovely man in Greece, I had jotted down these two inspring quotes in my travel journal:
“Magic is a bridge,” he said at last, “a bridge that allows you to walk from the visible world over into the invisible, and to learn lessons of both those worlds.”
The Magus. From Brida, Paulo Coelho.
I was so affirmed when I read these quotes. I know the bridge. I do what I can to introduce others who are seeking their bridge.
AND, not only that, every time I read the quotes I am taken back to Hania, Crete.. sketching, motorcyle riding with the man who got the book, basking in the wonder of this extraordinary world of ours.
( * For those uncomfortable with the world ‘God’, imagine Spirit, the Universe, your higher self or the belief that works best for you as you contemplate this quote. It would be sad if one word stopped some people from feeling the quote’s power.)
