WONDER

December 4, 2010 – Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? (Author: Jeffrey Davis)

For me the very most important thing in life, always, no matter what, is to be present. Present to this moment, this person, this duty, this physical sensation, this thought, this feeling, this action, this choice, this obstacle, this sorrow, this joy. I’m not sure anyone ever achieves continual presence but some get close and I want to be one of those. Wonder is the constant companion to Presence. One can’t be present without experiencing wonder about what will happen next, wonder at how it all worked out just like that, wonder at the absurd glory of this mysterious universe.
