“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.”
If you are reading this message then slow down. Take this in. Don’t hurry past it.
Your value is inherent. It has nothing to do with the roles you serve, the things you do, the things you accomplish or the things you have.
It has nothing to do with things. It has everything to do with you
We don’t stop very often to just experience wonder
- The beauty of a flower
- The refreshment of a cool breeze
- A laughing child
- An effortless moment
But even ore rarely do we stop and marvel at our own existence.
For whatever reason we not only exist but we are conscious that we do.
We have the extraordinary ability to wonder, to be entranced by this miracle of life, “…so that our life … innermost being and reality, we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” to quote Joseph Campbell.
How do we do that? Well you just took one step. You stopped and you read this. You put aside all of the “what’s nexts” and let yourself have a refreshing moment.
If you watch (and just keep your mind and your energy open to it), life will show you an endless flow of opportunities to experience “the rapture of being alive.”
It requires no special training, no lengthy time sitting on a cushion, no altered state. Just a willingness to let life show itself to you.
And, since you are the self-aware being that can know life from the inside, life wants nothing other than to reveal itself to you.
