Magic Slate

If you want to meet someone who can fix any situation you don’t like, who can bring you happiness in spite of what other people say or believe, look in the mirror, then say this magic word:


Richard Bach wrote that insightful message in his book, Messiah’s Handbook. We do look for things to make us happy. We buy, sell, bargain and concoct stories and tales so we can get what we want. The wanting is an insatiable nagging. This nagging has roots in the one place we can’t touch. That place is our ego.

We don’t think about what we see in the mirror. There’s more there than meets the eye in the mirror. The eye and the ego have control in that personal interaction. If we took a minute and looked behind the ego, we would see a specialness that yearns to give us everything we need. Behind the ego is the fertile ground of consciousness where all things are possible. It is place void of time and space, and we feel very comfortable there. We also feel a little naked there. Naked, for some of us, is a condition of discomfort, but we all start our physical life that way, and we go back to that start every time we die, or every time look behind our ego in the mirror.

Looking behind the ego is a little like death. There is nothing there or anywhere, but every thing we ever wanted is there. It’s a blank slate within our consciousness. That slate is their for us. No one has a slate like ours. They are all different, but they all do the same thing. Our blank slate gives us the ability to change what we don’t like, and add what we do like. It’s a magic slate, and the only thing we need to do to get it started is to say, “Hello.”
