Part Seven: Where has all the Magic Gone?

When I say, "a thought rooted in truth" I am talking about belief.
Belief is defined in the American Heritage Dictionary as "the mental
acceptance of truth."

Think back to how magic was performed throughout history. Incantations
were chanted, spells were cast, elaborate potions were mixed. In
Jesus' case, prayers were said. Logically, we all know that
combining a list of disparate, and many times disgusting, things in a
big pot creates only a mess. So what created the magic? It was the
pure belief the person had in what they were doing. In other words,
if they were truly convinced that chanting the incantation, or saying
the spell, or prayer, or mixing the potion would produce the desired
effect, then it would. Jesus was able to feed five thousand people
with only two fish and five loaves of bread because he believed so
strongly, down in the very fiber of his being, that God would somehow
make it happen.

The ironic thing is that we are all magic, we are all creating our
circumstances at all times. And we do this through the beliefs we
hold. What we consider magic (creating something out of thin air,
levitating objects, instantly traveling from one place to another
without passing through the space between) is impossible for the
common person because we don't believe it to be possible. And
no matter how hard we try to convince ourselves that we can make an
object appear out of thin air, there is still a part of our mind that
does not believe it will really work. And that belief is the force
creating the experience and the reason nothing appears in front of
