The magic show...

There is always an excitement in seeing a magician perform. The manner in which he pulls off a rabbit from his hat and uses his wand to bring parrots from the air has always electrified me. What excite me most are the wide-open eyes of the children who witness these magic… without them both the magic and the magician cannot have the day.

Sometimes when we stand on God’s creation and admire it like children in a magic show, what a thrill it will be for God to see our eyes glittering with awe and excitement! The Master Magician goes on and on, making everyday a magic for us … And how sad it will be for Him when we miss to recognize His magic in our life.
Tagore puts it like this…”God waits to win back his own flowers as gifts from man’s hands.” (quoted from 'Stray Birds') . God needs our smiles and cries…like children in a magic show.

There is a singer in the Bible who tells God thus:

"God, When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place
what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him
You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.

You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:
all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth"

Such views constantly remind me to plan for the next visit to Himalaya. I stumbled on a book recently by Ashok Dilwali on Himalayas. Amazing shots -,k:ashok%20dilwali&page=2
