The Magic Moments
I was thinking of magicians the other day...People often tell you to follow your passion while selecting a career. I am sure most magicians would have been fascinated with magic when they were young...Or rather, all kids are fascinated with magic when they are young...The passionate ones follow their dreams and go on to become magicians...But, once there, it is all mechanical work...The "Awe Factor" of magic is gone...
Does that disillusion the magician?Or does he comfort himself saying "the journey was worth it!"?
On a more spiritual note, did God feel the same way after creating the world? A feeling of "tired and it wasn't worth it after all" ?
On a wider context, is it better to let some miracles be rather than trying to unravel them all? Are some dreams better left alone as dreams ? Is it necessary to always break down all your dreams into goals,sub-goals,milestones etc, create elaborate plans, and work towards their fulfillment? Isn't it better to keep some dreams in that quiet corner of your heart, so that on a lazy Sunday, you can dust them back , look at them fondly, let your imagination run wild with possibilities and then end up with a good laugh at life's comedy of errors* ?
*Wikipedia says "A comedy of errors is dramatic work (often a play) that is light and often humorous or satirical in tone, in which the action usually features a series of comic instances of mistaken identity, and which typically culminates in a happy resolution of the thematic conflict."
