A sleight of hand

We will never discover new worlds unless we pay heed to the tricksters, whose seemingly innocuous acts of deception are powerful invitations to us to leave the perceptual comfort of our visions; whose verbal train of abracadabras are portals out of our reality-tunnels.

They teach us that nothing is what it is, that what we see is actually ‘how’ we see, and that new worlds are woven intimately into the fabric of the normal. It will take a ‘sleight of hand’ to see that one can live without money, learn without schools, grow and thrive outside the culture of heights and the politics of success, participate in the sacred without kneeling before any institutionalized system of creeds, and work meaningfully beyond today’s job culture.
