Given at the All-School Meeting, 2005 The Magi Process adds the physical body to the work of ASOS. Or we might say that the body, becoming ready to work nondually in the world, arrives at the vehicle of Magi Process which rides the wave of the body into the waves of the world.
Working for the world always entails the body. Whether it is doing zazen meditation on a mountainside all alone, or working as a healer helping others to grow, the more we work with the body—automatically—the more we are working with the world.
1. I want people to understand, as they work with the Magi Process, that they are not working with a magical system, but are tuning into a deep truth about how the universe works. I’m trying to open the space for us all in which the Magi Process can bloom and flourish.
2. One of the most powerful images in the Star Wars movies is of the master Jedi Yoda and his apprentices moving objects with their minds alone. For some reason, action-at-a-distance, movement without physical means has always intrigued us. Voodoo, the work of shamans, dream journeys, prayer itself, even the art forms of puppeteering, and the ghost plays of Japanese Noh drama, all of these are supposed to work the miracles of what Einstein called spooky action at a distance.
