Burning Wishes

"Qualities associated with fire such as purification, strength, and life are also associated with ash. Burning is seen in many cultures as simply changing the physical state of matter, not as the destruction of the more spiritual qualities of that matter." from The ABC of Magic Charms by Elizabeth Pepper

Do you have a burning wish, a wish that blazes in your heart, a wish that shoots flames of inspiration throughout your soul?

Transform it.

Write it on paper.

Burn it.

See it written in ash floating on the wind.

It will land.

It will come back to you transformed... if you are standing where it lands.

But you cannot catch it by standing in the same place you were when you watched it turn into ash. No, you must keep moving, following, finding, if you wish to be there when it lands.

Moral of the story:

You make wishes come true when you grow towards the outcome you seek.

This is so true Ang :)

What a wonderful way of putting it - no one ever gets their hearts desire by standing still.
