The shining star

These passages are excerpts from an ongoing work, The Magician Awakes. They are also notes I prepared while assembling my second collection, Exit From The Matrix. I recommend reading more about Exit here. If you are an adventurous soul, it’s for you.
“There is a form of mind control in which very workable patterns are taken too far. They become obsessions. They become filters through which a person sees everything. Then the fire of life cools and goes out. Then the intelligence of a person works against him. My work is about showing people there is something beyond these patterns. What people are hoping for and wishing for is beyond these mind-patterns, whether they know it or not. I don’t care whether they live in America, Australia, Canada, Malaysia, India, Peru, or the North Pole. They’re hoping for a kind of spontaneity and energy that transforms dead and repetitive days and nights into burning joy.”
“There is a shining star that hangs in the sky over every home. It is called Imagination. It is the portal into a space and a future that has never been created before. It is a space for you, in which you can bring into being your deepest dreams. This space can be called upon at any moment. It never dies. It never fades. When all the other lamps go out, this shining space remains.”
“Realism is a joke. Unfortunately, it is a joke we have to deal with. After a certain point, it takes the dew off the rose and the dawn out of the horizon. So we need renewal. We need a new dose of faith in that symphony that rests in our souls. Music that never ends. Hearing it is not enough. We must play it. We must compose it. As we do, we remember images that come flashing back to us like lithe animals on the move in the forest, where all things begin. Where invention begins. Where we create what has never been created before.”
“We are the artists of reality. We may have forgotten the fact, but that doesn’t matter. Reality is tired of itself. It is asking us to paint it a new and unprecedented way. It is always asking. It doesn’t want a return to former times. It wants future that surpasses every dimension. It wants spontaneity in the same way that plants want water and sun. It wants dreams to overcome solid shapes that pretend to be eternal. It wants us to rise from the sleep of acceptance and strike out on a great adventure.”
