Sometimes, what is needed is a reminder that relying on things unseen

Sometimes, what is needed is a reminder that relying on things unseen is much more important than relying on things seen. How do I get this reminder? By way of some stark thing seen, namely a glance at the face in the mirror under a harsh light. The glare of the bright fluorescent light catches all of my imperfections, underscores everything about my hair and face that speaks of my mortality.

So many things seen are but signs pointing to things unseen.

If you dismiss things seen because you are looking for the hidden, then you are missing out as much as the person who stops believing in things hidden and focuses solely on things seen. You must always look at things seen as being helpful pointers to things unseen–tips of icebergs–some are benevolent and some are nefarious. Some things unseen are hiding because I am not looking and some are hiding because or in case I am looking.

Most things unseen are like the inside of your television set. They could be described as magic, but they have guts that work in a particular fashion and will work in a different fashion if you take apart reality and start poking those things with a stick.
