The secrets to life can't be explained in words. Words are limiting and they will never suffice. The secrets to life can only ever be felt.
If you don't know how, I would advise you to stop holding on to your own expectations of reality. And to stop trying to make sense of everything that is happening. You were never meant to do that. You were only ever meant to feel. That is your main purpose.
So it is that simple and that difficult; Magic is to be found everywhere. It is always there, it always was, and it always will be. Your task is to learn how to not close your mind off from it. Perhaps the best way to put it is to return to that childlike innocence and curiosity that once were running through your veins. You see, the universe is so full of joy and excitement and elegance and movement. It is the best dance partner you could ever wish for- and it wants to dance with you. But the universe will only dance with the ones already on the dance floor. If you're still looking for an invitation, know that it is being offered to you at every moment. To dance with life is a right you were given at birth. All you ever have to do is grasp it.
Every day, every hour, every minute, is a choice between sitting it out or open yourself up to the dance.
However, if you want to dance, you must remember that dancing is not about performance. It's not about getting anywhere. It's about what's happening just then and there. It's about feeling and creating and perhaps most importantly- Being. When you let it all go, life will unfold in the most beautiful ways. There will be magic and there will be miracles. There will be grace and love and beauty and enchantment.
So when the universe wants to dance with you (and it always does), I hope you say yes.
