(In response to a comment on yesterday's post.)
Here's something that fascinates me:
Magical thinking IS real. We all control the universe with our minds, every second of our lives. Well, maybe not the entire universe, but definitely this planet.
You don't believe me? I'll prove it.
Stand up, walk to the nearest person, and say something affirming, or confusing. Anything from "You're a spiffy person, do you know that?" to "The Cookie Monster rises at midnight!"
Hey, you don't even have to go that far. Just take a deep breath and blow, spewing some of your own personal bacteria into the atmosphere. Bonus points if you have the flu and work in a crowded office.
The point is, our brains, every day, turn our thoughts into actions, which change our world. Hell, even woodlice do it.
See how easy that was? If you want to change the universe with your mind, make a decision, and do it. Let us meditate upon this, electrician style.
