“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.” – Therese of Lisieux

Seek Out Awe and Wonder
Much has been said and written about how The Law of Attraction is always responding to reflect back into our world what we are deep down inside. Our subconscious mind plays a major role in what that reflection will look like, but while that part of the mind cannot choose through logic as to what to think, it can be influenced by our conscious mind’s ability to do so and the choices we make as we focus our attention on various things.
So what about seeking out awe and wonder? Why do that? If we want to develop for ourselves an awesome world to live in- what could be better than being in such a fantastic state of mind more often? Awe and wonder are tightly linked to gratitude, aren’t they? If we see something which astonishes us in it’s beauty, complexity, or simplicity, for example, we really can’t help but to appreciate it, can we?
Consider a mother dog caring for it’s puppies, licking them gently as they nurse. The mother’s love for her babies, the puppies relying on their mother to give them life through food and warmth is a special thing that speaks to the heart, true? An unusual flower appearing in a place we’d least expect it, perhaps in a crack in the bricks of an abandoned building. A bird singing sweetly and for apparently no reason can evoke such emotions. Ever sit back and just observe children playing at abandon, seemingly without a care in the world?
We can go on the internet and search out beautiful and awe-inspiring photos of life, nature, or maybe the geometric patterns created for us. We can be observers of human behavior and fascinated as to what makes people do the things they do. There are an unlimited amount of things which can have us feeling this way. Well, we say “unlimited”, but that’s not exactly true. There is a very real limit to those things that inspire us and create joy in our lives. That limit is self-imposed, however. Let’s tear down that wall and let the sunshine trail in. The more we allow ourselves to be in this state of mind, the more this state of mind will seek us out. Wouldn’t that be a great way to live?
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
