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.

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
