Do you know how most card tricks start?
That’s right, “Pick a card, any card.”
I had a period in my life where I was completely into magic.
Gosh, I don’t know how many hundreds or probably more likely thousands of dollars I spent on magic tricks.
And in my magical studies, I stumbled across this American magician Eugene Burger.
Today, let me tell you about a beautiful quote I found from Eugene, and how it changed my relationship and my life.
Eugene Burger was not one of the big names – not like David Copperfield, or David Blaine, or Chris Angel.
But he was well known inside the magic community, he was considered one of the 100 most influential magicians of the 20th century.
He was quite an impressive figure, with his big beard, and his pointing eyes. He had a fable for mentalism and bizarre magic, where his distinctive appearance helped him tremendously to make a big impact on his audience.
He was also a philosopher.
And I read this sentence, this philosophical statement, and it really moved me, and made me think about my life, about my relationship:
“All magic is about transformation.
You are the magician in your own life. You are the agent of transformation, your own transformation.”
Now, let’s pause for a minute and unpack that.
First, Eugene says “All magic is about transformation.”
Typical magic transformations like a card moves from one place where you just saw it to an impossible location seconds later. A rope is cut in half and restored again.
So, magic is about transformation.
And in a magic show, the magician is the one creating this transformation.
You see it in front of your eyes, the magician doing seemingly impossible things, transforming reality.
But then, Eugene goes on to say
“You are the magician in your own life. You are the agent of transformation, your own transformation”.
So, in reality, in our daily life, when we are not watching a magic show, there is no magician here, nobody waving a magic wand and creating transformation for you.
You have to do it yourself.
You are the magician, you are the one transforming your life from where it is right now to where you want it to be.
That’s why it’s necessary for us to step up, to take responsibility.
To stop the blame game, complaning about our partner, what he did, or what he didn’t do, and why he must change.
You are the magician.
You need to make your relationship the way you want it to be.
We are not watching a magic show, you cannot just sit in the audience and lean back and watch the magical transformations appear without you doing anything.
You need to get up on the stage.
You need to be the magician.
You need to create the magic in your life.
You need to create your own transformation, the transformations that you want to see in your life.
You are not waiting for others to get up on the stage
You do it yourself.
