Today, Andrzejki. My father fest. A day of fun and fortune-telling. At least in my home country. Today, everyone wants to know what awaits them. They will dance and foretell, pour the wax through the keyhole. The virgins will put on their shoes to find out which one is going to get married first.
I will not say it is Catholic, but Slavic nature is left over from generation to generation, because in these divinations there is magic, mystery, something that attracts people. It always attracted them, because we are afraid of the unknown, but a thrill of excitement and that would have been an unspoken sentence to try.
There are many magical traditions. In total, each culture has some elements of magic and mysticism. Even King Solomon had his secrets, which he hid very well. They were enthusiastically dug out by the Knights Templars, but this is another story. In recent times, kabala, I do not know how many people know what is behind the magical red ribbon on the wrist? Apparently she’s supposed to protect us, maybe it’s true, I’ve been bashing red bows myself when I was little to not impress me. Eye of the prophet who is supposed to protect the house. Blue but it is a divine color. Salt and bread for novelties to always be abundant, tooth under the pillow, all the wedding superstitions, which we look with a cold eye, but just in case we will stick to them. Is not a magic?
Conception of a child, there is already magic mass in itself. At least for me.
Dark tarot or runes. We know that we should not, because what is going to be it, but what harms us look in the glass balls. It fascinates us. I do not know if someone would like to know their date of death, but certainly many of us would like to know about the threats and obstacles that await us, or the success that is coming.
And of course, the world is full of cheaters, already the Egyptian priests have been cheating people so much, but today we have the knowledge, we can all google. But we can not explain how a mother can feel that something bad is happening to a child, as some people see the aure of others, how they feel about what is happening to us during sleep. it’s also magic and we do not know, really science can not explain it to us. And the more we know, we are helpless and insincere.
So, do we really need to know our future?
If we were to know it, we would be born with this knowledge. But is a reason why thid did not happen. So maybe there is a reason why we do not need to know what will happen to us. Maybe we should just live happily every day and as Jobs said, live as if it was our last day in life. Because the greatest illusion we have is that we have time.
The Buddha was right when he say:
The problem is you think you have a time
Also, if you want to play with a magic, treat it as fun, because life is much more interesting when it comes to the unknown but with a good plan. Because the ending of the trip will be the same for everyone. But what you do during the journey depends only on you.
