Perception of Wonder

The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction. – Rachel Carson

There is so much to see, hear, smell, sense in the Universe that one lifetime is not enough. There is so much to appreciate, enjoy and wonder about! I am not talking about the seven wonders. I am talking about adopting the perception of wonder.

As Ray Bradbury says: We are an impossibility in an impossible universe. Our birth and entire existence seems so wonderful! We cannot sit and create a human with tools and equipments. It SEEMS impossible. But, we all witness its possibility.

And the more we will learn to observe and see wonders in the Universe, the more we will have faith in the possibility of everything which we presumed to be impossible, including World Peace.

As a matter of fact, World Peace is not something we have to bring about or create. We just need to stop disturbing it with destructive thoughts and actions. And the solution is simple: Shifting the focus from anything else and keeping​ it on the wonders and beauty and inexhaustible variety of existence. It’s the same as appreciating God.

Godlike Patience

Why is patience so important?
Because it makes us pay attention. – Paulo Coelho.


All of us have heard that patience is a bitter plant, but it has a sweet fruit. We have heard and we say…keep patience..have patience. But, patience does not mean mere waiting.

Patience is an opportunity to focus. Patience means knowing the purpose of waiting. Patience means a healthy attitude towards circumstances.

With this understanding patience doesn’t remain bitter; it becomes curiosity, hope, enthusiasm…it becomes a sweet fruit in itself. It allows us to enjoy the journey. We can shift our attention from the reward and keep it on the process.

In this way, patience doesn’t merely bring sweeter results for us. It brings a wonderful byproduct than the end result. It makes our being more beautiful. Without patience, spiritual growth is an illusion. With patience, it becomes a certainty.

Let us demonstrate Godlike patience to discover the precious gifts of life.

In the book Art of Loving, Eric Fromm includes Care to be one of the components of love. Today, we will understand and implement care.

Care is the deepest shade of love. When you care about someone you do not even need to express your love in words.

Care means attention. Care means concern. When someone gets your attention and feels your concern through your actions, he/she knows that you love him/her.

Care is a shade of respect as well. When you care about someone’s likes, dislikes, views, opinions, weaknesses or limitations, he/she feels your respect. They feel the unconditional acceptance. And, as you know, unconditional acceptance is the foundation of Unconditional Love !

Caring about someone’s needs is a great way of expressing love. Being observant helps in knowing even the smallest need; and observation is possible with attention. When we demonstrate such care the recipient remembers it for his whole life.

So, Care in Action is the mantra today. Have a loving, caring day !

Love, Joy, Happy Thoughts
