Awe and Amazement

December 14th, 2013

I like to walk around in amazement.  I like to gawk at the trees and wonder how they become trees.  I like to watch animals and the way they interact with each other and the planet.  I like to see the mountains in their hugeness, just being.

This world is simply amazing.

And then I look at humans and think, people are like magic!  We say and do things that are so unpredictable, we even surprise ourselves sometimes.  We create things like art and music and the internet.  We have ideas and emotions and we share them with whoever will listen.  Most interestingly, we run around the planet feeling separate and individual and yet we are intimately connected with every other human here.

And we are powerful.  We think we can destroy the world, and while we may be able to mess it up extensively, I do not believe we have the power to destroy it.  I do, however, believe we can destroy ourselves.  Easily.  In fact, we do it all the time.

So why not use all that magic and power to create?  Why not simply bring up our own deepest desires and see them through?  At the very least, in the process, we can set some visions for ourselves.

It feels, to me, that many of the old ways of doing things are crumbling, and while there may be some chaos in this transition, it is definitely a transition, not just an end.  Underneath the debris the broad and deep knowing of who we really are arises to support us all.

And this is the magic of being.  We are here.  I don’t know how we got here, not really, nor do I really know why.  But we are.  And it’s still amazing.
