There perhaps exist miraculous happenings
Was it only my adolescent fantasies
Or was I responding to some deeper dream
I cannot but feel that in my dreams of magic there were echoes of an intensely serious purpose
The teachings of the East come to us with a call for inwardness
We in the West respond as creatures born for action
I desired the magical – something so new, a reality so vibrant and free
so miraculous as to dissolve all fear.
