Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement. Just imagine that? Just imagine being pleasantly amazed at the ordinary world around you instead of worrying over whether someone is thinking you are special, or if you got more likes on your FB post today, or if your workmates will like the way you styled your hair or trimmed your beard, or if you might succumb to some willy virus circulating through the population knocking off mostly the old and weak.
Imagine waking up in the morning and looking at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Imagine entering the classroom of life with marvel and wonder and a desire to learn and grow. Imagine, every day, experiencing the Great Mystery as creation constantly unfolding before us in clear view – offering us in every way the opportunity to witness the sublime and the beautiful.
Imagine how extraordinary that would be to see the ordinary as extraordinary.
Now smile. Open your heart and open your mind. Open the window of your room. Breathe deep the elemental air. Smell the freshness of earth and rain and snow. Pause to feel the breaze and sun on your face. Hear the joyful bird song. This is the love that invites you everyday to know its presence. Feel that love. Smile that love. Offer that love to those whose ignorance keeps them lost in pain and suffering.
Your are a portal for this gift of love. Honor this gift. Share it willingly and appropriately. Let your light be a balm that soothes the ills of those around you.
