Lightning storms and gratefulness in the Tarahumara region! We often take the natural beauty around us for granted, yet when we stop to truly see the many gifts offered for free, we are awe-stricken and humbled. This great essay captures the moment and reminds us to be more aware of all the little (and big) miracles of our every day life. To live with wonder and gratefulness is a daily practice that will only help us create more meaning in our lives.
I liked this essay, but I have a question: If “love is as love does”, how does it come about that so many great poems, paintings, music, and more, are the result of “feelings of love”? Seems to me that feelings of love are also powerful. Just thinking aloud here…
An intimate and tender expression of the mystery of life, making us ever so conscious of each action, thought and movement we make.
Seeing life and humanity through this particular prism would make all of the difference in the world. I loved how Nicos expounds on this simple (but complex) idea with such grace and clarity and how he emphasizes the power we all hold as well as the role of our personal responsibility and being grateful for this fleeting life.
A great essay to remind us that the awareness of being Alive, rather than just living, makes all of the difference.
