The Magician

I wrote this for the Tantra Summer Camp 2008

The following text is an adaptation of an essay that has been published on the internet. Its beauty lies in its splendid description of the game between Shiva and Shakti, between the feminine and the masculine. It may well be regarded as a story between either a man and a woman, or between the masculine and feminine sides of one single human being. The story speaks both to the superior mind and to the heart, and is a very good subject for meditation.In a state of contemplation we open ourselves towards higher aspects, revealed to us effortlessly in our own inner world, in an attitude of embracing rather than through a separating analysis. In a state of contemplation, we allow mysteries to reveal themselves to us, without looking for explanations or interfering to adjust the reality to what we believe it should be. In a state of contemplation, we let our heart speak in its own language and we listen silently to this gentle yet fascinating voice. It is a state impregnated with mystery and hidden meanings which we have an intuition about, but do not try to use our mind to separate them from their natural context. Reasoning finds no place in contemplation, and this allows us to ecstatically unveil secrets that otherwise would have been impossible to find in the maze of our logical mind.

You are invited to contemplate this story of deep spiritual meaning, revealing to us a part of the tantric path, which would have otherwise remained concealed behind the walls of spiritual initiation available to very few. This way, even the ones who are just starting on the tantric path can easily go beyond the limits of the ordinary world and enter into a sacred realm where the spiritual vision becomes an objective reality and what was seen before as an objective reality turns out to be just a projection of our mind.
