The Magic of the Cities.
Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer
In the Art of Dreaming Don Juan tells Carlos,
"… most of our energy goes into upholding our importance…
If we were capable of losing some of that importance, two extraordinary things would happen to us.
One, we would free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur;
and two we would provide ourselves with enough energy to ...
Catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the Universe."
