Moments of heart filled love that you can’t describe fill me with wonder. Also immense gratitude, I did a dance class yesterday and in the middle of dancing with others I felt this enormous heart filled gratitude of how good it felt to dance and to do it with a “tribe”. That feeling is always so indescribable and I am so happy it exists.
How the body carries out so many complex functions without the conscious mind having any idea what’s going on. Even stuff I am aware of, like walking and breathing, it just gets done in the background. A marvel.
I’ve been on bighistoryproject.com and have been educating myself on the history of the universe from the Big Bang to the present, and at every point in my learning, I feel a sense of wonder at how the universe gradually became just a little more complex over long periods of time until it eventually led to the diversity of life we see today.
I am filled with wonder when I see the love people can have for each other. I am filled with wonder when people step up and help out even when they don’t have to.
The moments when I don‘t expect anything. When I am just listening or watching it is as hearing sounds for the first time or somebody is playing a note which is giving the song a very special expression. Or looking into the eyes of a baby it is as looking into the universe. Then I know I am not here to make myself happy but to realize that I am happy.
Thank you. This resonates.
When the awareness opened to seeing that everything is in constant change – moment by moment. The realization that there had been blindness to the obvious, yet awe at the ever unfolding nature of existence.
Mother Nature in all Her glory. Birds singing, my California poppies blossoming in my garden, Redwood Trees out my front window, blue blue sky, clouds sailing by, fresh air sweet with jasmin flowers, hummingbirds, walking amongst the Big Trees. I am so blessed to have all this joy & wonder at my fingertips. 🙏❤️
Yesterday morning a mama duck and her 4 little ducklings walked down my street…I was delighted to see them as they took their walk. Little moments but big smiles. Several of my neighbors also saw it and we all said hello. Sweet moments.
Those moments in Spring,
when the birds start to sing,
and the leaves on the trees start to grow,
for this is the time
when the Earth starts to shine,
and nature doth smile, says hello.
You’re a poet,
dear Chris . . . 🙂
Ordinary moments, if I pay attention to them.
A long poem I read last fall came to mind with this question: https://www.ayearofbeinghere.com/2013/09/rabbit-ableegumooch-poetry-of-ordinary.html.
Barb this is what I meant by moments of surprise touch my heart. I followed your link (why); this where I go when I am strangely pulled.
This poem, and this site, I feel so much emotion. Talk about gratitude; thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your thoughts this morning.
( This is why I love Gratefulness.org., treasure upon treasure).
Thank you, Alara. I’m glad the poem touched you.
I’m always filled with wonder when I look up at the moon and realize that the same moon is seen by all human beings no matter where they live on this planet and the same sun that creates its reflective light rises and warms us all. Such a strong reminder that what Carl Sagan called the Pale Blue Dot is our home and we should be nourishing not destroying it or eac other. The song, “Let There Be Peace On Earth” comes to mind.
The moments that fill me with wonder are a surprise, They touch my heart.
Being in nature, listening and observing. The way the light in the sky moves and bounces off of the clouds. The way the sunshine sparkles on the ocean like diamonds. When the sun rises and sets, and on the same note when the moon rises – especially those times when it’s full and giant and orange. Also the clear night sky and the thousands upon thousands of stars you can see. And I think about these things, how they’re all just circling in a big giant universe, surrounded by other universes… oh my. It’s quite a miracle to be alive and part of this swirling energy!
The ocean and all of nature. Children. Love!
With this question, I just paused – and breathed – and simply took in the wonder-filled reality of being alive, of greeting a new day.
