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.

Dreams are inevitable..

So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.-Christopher Reeve.

Every dream needs a period of incubation. During this period, all we need to do is patiently allow the dream to blossom. As we focus our attention and mental energy on the dream, it reveals its potential. We can sense its form and then start believing in its probability.

The moment we can see even one percent probability, our mind gets flooded with ideas to make it manifest. Every dream deserves at least some contemplation. We should never shun anything outrightly.

A dream is like a seed. Let it take roots in your fertile mind and provide it with positive environment…an environment of belief. Water it with passion. Manure it with enthusiasm. All these together form a strong Will to act and accomplish the dream.

God keeps inspiring us to take the right action. The instincts to act may be novel to us. But, we must not doubt them. Old ways of acting are of little use in reaching new horizons. We need to invent new means. We need to create new paths. And then achievement becomes inevitable.

Let God

When a man forgets himself, he usually does something everybody else remembers. – James Coco – 1930-1987, Actor
This is so striking! Each and every thing we consider worth remembering had bloomed from the moment of merger….merger of the doer, the thing done and the source of inspiration. There was no separation. In fact, the doer was not really doing but simply allowing.

There was no concern for the outcome. There was no thought about the reward. The engrossing was so rewarding, so fulfilling, that the end result did not attract any focus. The end result was awe-inspiring for those who saw it. The end result contributed in the history of civilisation.

Love and passion allow us to merge with the doing. The ‘I’ disappears and the creation takes a magnificent form. Remember to forget yourself more often. Let Go and Let God.

In every job that must be done there is an element of fun. – Mary Poppins (album)

In every job that must be done there is an element of fun. – Mary Poppins (album)

There is generally a mental aversion to the word must. We tend to resist what we know we must do. Everything in life has a process. We have to be on a journey before we reach the destination.

The destination is nothing but a picture of future painted by our imagination. We shouldn’t treat the moments which are taking us ahead as hurdles to be crossed. Each moment deserves our love, attention and respect. Likewise, each small step towards our destination should be enjoyed.

We need to carry the sweetness and hues each moment brings for us to complete our painting. Just by an intention to drop the resistance and an intention to discover fun in each step the painting will become colourful…the arriving will become meaningful.

This day on let us affirm: *This moment is filled with joy. I choose to experience the sweetness of today. – Louise Hay* God will join in the fun.

Life is a journey without GPS. – Anonymous

Travel light. Check your baggage. Are you carrying past pain and suffering? Oh! It is the heaviest. Remove it at once.

Are you carrying a big bundle of expectations? Open it and replace expectations with spontaneity. Spontaneity has no weight. It emerges and dissolves once the purpose is served.

Are you carrying worries and fears? My! They have a tendency to swell. So just take them out and throw away.

Select some very light yet useful things like awe and wonder, laughter and cheer, enthusiasm and hope and put them in your backpack. Carry some creativity as well. It will help you resolve challenges in a novel way.

Ummm…what more would you need? Yes…a lot of positive attitude to turn problems into opportunities.

Aha ! Don’t forget to carry some love and kindness. A small quantity would do. Because, they multiply whenever used. Have a light and funfilled journey.

Love, Joy, Happy Thoughts
