I thought back to when I was in college going to summer school when a few of the guys I knew had summer jobs somewhere, many out west in Colorado, Montana, Idaho, and other exotic sounding places. They worked at resorts, national parks; as river guides, as ranch hands. Me, I stayed in Iowa and studied.

We live in the world of ego’s illusion. Let go of the ego and see what can happen.
Pay attention and be aware so you do not miss those moments of magic . . . because they do happen.
Searching for magic? Wanting metaphysical? Chop wood, haul water.
