The seven ingredients of magic

First ingredient of magic: Presence. Bring every morsel of your mind and matter to here and now. You breathe. You are.

Second ingredient of magic: The universe. Place everything within the ring of your control. Extract yourself. Now play. Remember, with great power comes great responsibility.

Third ingredient of magic: The elements. Earth. Water. Fire. Air. Conjure your dragon.

Fourth ingredient of magic: Newton’s third law of motion. Everything has an equal and opposite reaction; there are no exceptions. Use this.

Fifth ingredient of magic: Time. Time is the river your dragon wades in. Time listens to no one. But, Time is a trickster and accepts invitations to play games. But, be warned when you play with Time; it always wins. So, play only if you enjoy the game, not for victory.

Sixth ingredient of magic: Honesty. You cannot hack intentions; they must be meant in all honesty.

Seventh ingredient of magic: Trust. Set your dragon free; but, never define its path. Trust, because you know.
