The Magician

Posted: July 20, 2009 / in: Blog / 11 comments

I wrote this for the Tantra Summer Camp 2008

The following text is an adaptation of an essay that has been published on the internet. Its beauty lies in its splendid description of the game between Shiva and Shakti, between the feminine and the masculine. It may well be regarded as a story between either a man and a woman, or between the masculine and feminine sides of one single human being. The story speaks both to the superior mind and to the heart, and is a very good subject for meditation.In a state of contemplation we open ourselves towards higher aspects, revealed to us effortlessly in our own inner world, in an attitude of embracing rather than through a separating analysis. In a state of contemplation, we allow mysteries to reveal themselves to us, without looking for explanations or interfering to adjust the reality to what we believe it should be. In a state of contemplation, we let our heart speak in its own language and we listen silently to this gentle yet fascinating voice. It is a state impregnated with mystery and hidden meanings which we have an intuition about, but do not try to use our mind to separate them from their natural context. Reasoning finds no place in contemplation, and this allows us to ecstatically unveil secrets that otherwise would have been impossible to find in the maze of our logical mind.

You are invited to contemplate this story of deep spiritual meaning, revealing to us a part of the tantric path, which would have otherwise remained concealed behind the walls of spiritual initiation available to very few. This way, even the ones who are just starting on the tantric path can easily go beyond the limits of the ordinary world and enter into a sacred realm where the spiritual vision becomes an objective reality and what was seen before as an objective reality turns out to be just a projection of our mind.

    Dear Mihai

    this story is so beautiful and draws tears in my eyes, it reminds me of a similar story that I read in a sufi book, which also made me cry:

    when asked about God, and the relation between God and the human being, the sufi answered:

    “In the whole universe there is only ONE:
    the lover and the beloved,
    the creater who plays with his creation”

    seeking the truth

    one more sufi poem on youtubes:

    what am I?

    “I belong to the soul of the beloved”

    love from Shanti

    What a beautiful story!
    Reading this love statement I am overwhelmed, melted in love, like falling in love!
    I saw “the movie” described by the story! So simple words and so great story, it is like the life itself is just a poem of love!
    My heart is happy, jumping from my chest, ready so sing the happiness on the streets of the world.
    If it is always like it is described in the story, the life is just a joy, a result of the most pure love, a fulfillment of the deepest desires and the mysterious game between the one how is creating and his creation.
    Ah, dear one! The desires are rising in me, ready to be fulfilled and in this way offering me the chance to know the world, the universe…
    Dear Mihai, if you have more poems or stories like this, please add some more and also add your comments for them.
    Thanks from a dreaming heart,

    Every time I read this… It is simply magical…… Something moves deeply and strongly in my soul.. Ancient memories, dreams, longings.. i become able to pull out a thread out of them.. a thin one like a subtle refined intuition of the truth I AM…

    And what a synchronicity.. Every week I make a consecration and ask GOD for what aspect of Shiva should I transfigure my lover in the next days. Monday morning I read the story here on the blog, and monday evening the Magician plays His magic: SHIVA MAYAVIN 🙂

      @ sundari
      you have beautiful eyes and this is the reason why you can see all this beauty. it is also wonderful how Shiva Mayavin replied to you and your wonderful game. with the translation of some texts from the site, i am not having the time now to do this and the person that helps me with the translation is quite busy with the courses we make right now, therefore i suggest maybe some of you can translate and send it to me on mail and we can publish both languages.

    Wow Mihai, this is one of the most beautiful creations I’ve ever read. It’s amazingly rich and of such an extraordinary depth. It’s miraculous what an effect words can have! They bring tears to my eyes. Tears of ecstatic and overwhelming love and longing! I feel your soul very much in these lines and I also feel the longing for the spiritual path awakening inside of me. The longing within my heart for communion with God, with the masculine, with Shiva, my divine husband, becomes so strong, I cannot ignore it any longer. Thank you for sharing this with us. You really are a magician 🙂

  7. Sundari says:

    Mihai, I know, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder but may I say it is not the only reason.. the eyes (of the heart) are they not the mirror of a higher sublime reality that IS even though we see it or not? Other way is just a play of imagination?
    Recently I watched a wonderful movie EL GRECO. I didnt know much about this artist but in this movie, he is portrayed as the one who could turn people into angels by painting them. I was very impressed to find about this man that was consciously painting this way. I recommend the movie for the way it shows the power of transfiguration.

    With love,

    Such a beautiful poem! So close in its vivid imagery to being a painting.:)
    I miss the poetry in my life. Thank you for reminding me!

    I was crying and crying and crying reading this poem as i wanted to remove forever the veils covering my eyes, for my soul to remain nude and forever surrounding to you immense, unconditional Love, Shiva!
