The majesty of the mountains… The endlessness of the sea… The meandering of great rivers The distant light of the stars… The power and pull of the moon in the sky…
We gaze in awe: at the miracle of nature touching us with her grace she opens our hearts pours beauty into our being, awakening us from our dream, inviting us into a world vibrant and alive with possibility.
And here we are: human beings with beating hearts incredible minds and intricately complex bodies filled with spirit.
May we gaze in awe: at the magnificence of our humanity – our majesty our endlessness our meandering our light.
It is so easy it is to forget that we, as human beings, are amazing and worthy of inspiring awe.
Have you ever had a sense that something significant is happening in your life, although there’s really nothing noteworthy you can point to that reveals what’s actually unfolding? I have this sense that something special is emerging from what has come before. There’s a part of me that wants to move into action, to find answers, to be doing something, anything, to nail things down. And, there’s a part of me that knows the path lies in going slow, embracing life’s flow, in listening, and in simply being with what is, open and accepting. I’m doing my best to listen to the latter.
* I took this photo of a morning glory late one morning in Lugano Switzerland, walking down from Chiesa Santa Maria del Sasso toward toward Lake Maggiore. I’ve included a couple of other photos featuring that walk (a boat on the lake, the church).
