One cannot but be in awe when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
July 24th - we all need more awe and wonder
Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.
Betty Smith, Joy in the Morning
One of the goals I set for myself every day is to keep a sense of wonder, awe, and reverence for life. The weary cynic in us needs hope. The overwhelmed worrier in us needs soothing. And the frustrated, angry and disappointed parts of ourselves need rest. Allowing in more wonder and awe can do that. Wonder and awe can enable a sense of gratitude, appreciation, joy, peace and contentment. They can heal because they nourish.
A great gift that all of us should seek is is a gift of wonder and awe; the gift to appreciate God’s glories and wonders on display at every moment, and everything we see and everyone we encounter.
A wonder filled you is essential to a wonderful life
Get out and awaken your sense of wonder , it's essential for leading a truly wonderful life. Wonder is a sense of how grand and marvelous life is, both our own small lives and the vast and intricate web of being in which we exist.
When we are caught up in the wonder of it all, we find ourselves humble, grateful and curious. We are open to small beauties that surround us as we go through our ordinary tasks and we are open to the marvel of being part of something much larger than ourselves.
The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
