Dabble in invisible reality

I like this quote from the 2004 film The Polar Express:

Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see.

Like love, joy, the ties of friendship, the magic of a moment. And more.

Thought of the day: Reality lies somewhere in the middle

From the novel Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho:

At every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and other in the abyss.

Book Recommendation – “The Raven’s Gift” by Jon Turk

The Raven’s Gift chronicles adventurer Jon Turk‘s journey to healing and self-awareness over six years of travel on the Siberian tundra and a series of encounters with a “magic” that permeates the natural world and connects it (and us) to the spiritual realm.  Insightful and incredibly well written, Turk’s story is a reminder of both life’s fragility and its resilience.  His experiences suggest that moments of awareness, connectedness and self-understanding are out there waiting for us, if only we trust enough to switch off our rational minds and just believe.  “It’s not how we seek self-awareness,” writes Turk, ” it’s whether we take the time and energy to make the journey [italics added].”  An excellent read.
