Living the Magical Life
An Oracular AdventureBook - 2002
In traditional cultures, oracles guided individuals and even entire societies, helping them to connect with the greater world and the meaning of life. Yet in our modern world of efficiency and productivity, this visionary awareness of the soul has been pushed into the background. This is a compelling account of one woman's journey to reclaim the magical, oracular, and spiritual dimensions of life. After building a personal altar to the Black Madonna, art critic Suzi Gablik finds herself immersed in a world of oracles and synchronicities. Adopting an attitude of openness, trust, and curiosity, she experiments with the reality of divine intervention: relying on oracular signs, numinous clues, guided inspiration, and moments of meaningful coincidence as another way of knowing and appreciating the world. Confronting the challenges of a powerful experience that is filled with paradox and ambiguity, she arrives at a very special place of being able to enjoy, accept, and trust the ultimate inscrutability of the universe. Today many of us live without access to the visionary part of our psyche. We tend to think of life as being unpredictable and random -- a series of disconnected events, flowing like an arrow through time. Living the Magical Life opens a doorway to a deeper vision of the world.
