JACK O’LANTERN’S NOTEBOOK:

Life is much like the Cup & Ball Magic Trick.

If you will do your best to imagine yourself minimizing & shrinking down to the tiny size of the magicians red foam ball, and then embracing it with tight hugging arms – with no plans on ever letting go.

The magician puts the cup down and cages you – and off you go, shuffled around with the other cups, whilst remaining in the one same (safe) space you’ve always been.

The tiny red foam ball that you dig your sharpened claws into is The Symbol of your Mind.

You see, Magic Tricks are actually Mind-Tricks.

You must see the illusion, the slight of hand, and un-trick your perception away from the stern focus of the one ball in the one cup.

Then, and only then, can you ESPY:

The Diamond Beneath All Things.

The World is a Great Magician.

The Greatest.
