Time And A Sense of Wonder

 

What would you do if you had “time and a sense of wonder?” That is a question that beckons to me today, after watching this magnificent TED Talk offered by film-maker Louie Schawartzberg.

When I consider the 24 hours a day, we are each granted from the moment the sun rises, until the moment it sets and then rises anew,  I am in awe, because I know that  it is ripe with opportunity to make a difference in my own life and that of those with whom I cross paths. Thinking about the number of hours I wasted in the past, worrying, second guessing, ‘what if and if only-ing’, I shake my head in dismay, because I know that it could instead, have been invested wisely. How much richer and fuller could my relationships have been had I known then what I know now? How much peace of mind could I have experienced instead of disturbing my own peace? These are simply inquiries and not condemnation. These days, I am amply aware that time is a precious commodity to be used to grow love seeds instead of a patch of weeds.

And then there’s the wonder part. I look at the world through opti-mystical, miracle eyes and what comes back to me is that it is a pretty awesome place. Life is endlessly fascinating and I am never bored. One of my favorite quotes comes from the movie Joe vs. The Volcano. “My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.”

What is it that you find amazing?

    Rational consciousness is a maze; mystical consciousness is amazing.

      Love that quote! There are indeed times when I get lost in a maze when I would rather be found in amazement! Is that your quote? <3

    Edie, that is from my free ebook on comparative mysticism.

Bucket List
I awoke in the wee hours this morning, from a dream about my parents. Both passed in the last few years; my dad in 2008 and my mom in 2010. They were the dearest people in my life; teachers, guides, providers, cheerleaders and guardians of my heart and soul. Although I know that they are safe and so

Living in Your God-ness
There are some people who come into our lives at a point in time when we are entering a new way of being. They plant seeds and are not necessarily a regular part of our days. Kind of like music in the background that puts a smile on your face when you hear it. Such has been the case with my friend
