Behold, the unicorn!
Its mythological mystique and unreachable beauty cannot be possessed, yet every once in a Supermoon, this magical creature comes just within our grasp and melts the mind in a matter of moments. Fact or fiction, magic or make-believe, its surreal presence shakes our very being, removing our blinders, challenging our truths, and bewildering us in stupefying solace. It combines the simplistic beauty shared in a clasp of hands at 30,000 feet, the natural wonder of a starry sky seen far beyond the city lights, and the intellectual inspiration and artistry of original thought. Sailing in serene slow motion, the unicorn awakes us from mundane slumber, impressing us to view the universe through its majestic eyes. Forgetting all fears, we oblige, entranced in its ethereal essence.
The unicorn’s glow can be deceptive, and the temptation to track it, transform it, or perpetually strive for it can overtake us. Maybe its materialization is misunderstood. Perhaps rather than pursue the unicorn, we should simply bask in its glory, unleash our creativity, and pause to revel in the lessons it seeks us to learn. Conceivably, it came into our lives at the exact moment we needed a spark to remind and embolden us of our true selves, our passions, and our pursuits. While most unicorns surely disappear, their mark is left within us; it’s up to us to choose to chase the fleeting fantasy, or harness its evanescence to illuminate our daunting dreams in novel navigation.
Whether you believe in divine intervention or random happenstance, one can’t help but wonder what sort of possibilities are presented when we accept the illustrious gift of such an anomaly as it graces our presence…What if some sort of wormhole is actualized, allowing only those curious enough to brave the unicorn’s beguiling light an extraordinary leap into the next adventure? What if our fearless flight even unleashes the opportunity to become a unicorn for another, and the simple act of becoming self-aware frees someone else stuck in sedentary cement? Or, perhaps, every once in a Supermoon, we become fortunate enough to befriend a fellow whimsical wonder along the path of our own purpose?
Ponder the possibilities…
