Look and See – The Muse Always Knows

“The doors are locked while the mind is set. I can’t change a thing now. It is what it will be no matter how hard I try.”
“You can’t be so sure. Things always change. I’ve seen it happen many times.”
“Well then give me an example. I’m locked out of my mind.”
“Open that window of your imagination. You know, the one that holds all the creatures, the worlds, the animals, and all that magic. Let it fly before your eyes and pretend nothing matters. Like when you were small.”
“Is that your example? Can’t you come up with something better?”
“I dare say, what more do you need than that open window of imagination. Let the wargs be droolers and the dragons breath fire. The witches need to do their dance about their little fire.

“Ghosts fly through the night rattling window panes while the Demons stalk the dark shadows of the empty corners. Nothing can hide from them there.
“Let Kings rule and pirates bury their treasures. Wars rage over lost loves and revenge the deaths of family members.
“The worlds are made up of castles, deserts, and wild forests. Dragons fly across the skies followed by winged horses and griffons. Serpents swim about the sea with giant octopuses combing mermaids’ hair.
“Like I said, it was all there. You just need to open that eye, the one between the other two eyes. It is the one that sees it all. Use it. Look and see. It is all it needs to be. That open window is larger than a door. It is a portal and so much more.
“Worlds exist far away, in outer space across the way. Look and see all are there and you don’t need a doorway for them to be as they are. Let space ships fly through the stars and watch the planets from afar. Just know they are there when you look with your eye. You can see them just as they are.
“Little Lords play with stripped horses and bears dance in little girl dresses. Picnics are eaten on stripped blankets on grasses. Children fly kites on steep mowed hills. Little girls sing songs of twinkled stars and spoons while the kites fly up to the moon.
“So never say your door to your mind is locked. Just open that window and open your eye. See the world with purple oceans and pink skies showered in rainbows and buckets. It is all there right where you left it. Just open that eye and see the fairies spreading their dust. Imagination will take you far away and give you a smile no one takes away.”
