A few weeks ago while attending Shoreline Universalist, the discussion revolved around the word wonder. Hearing that service alone, convinced me that I found the right place for my spiritual practice, because everything that was discussed I have in one way or another written about here at Wisdom and Life. One fine example is right here:
Natalie Merchant’s Wonder
An Overflowing Faith
It isn’t simply that Shoreline Universalist and I are on the same page when it comes to my feelings on spirituality. There is so much more.
Being a creative, wonder is an important word in my lexicon. For without that word, where would the artists be:
Wonder is what propels creatives forward.
I wonder what would happen if I put this color paint on the canvas.
I wonder how these words would string together?
I wonder how this would look through my viewfinder?
Being a photographer I’m always using that frame of reference when I’m out photographing. There are countless times I put the camera up to my eye, scanning the scenes. That’s one way I use that word. Another is once I’m home from a photo shoot and I begin editing my photos. When I come across a particular image that catches my eye, I wonder at the colors I captured. Sometimes I don’t even remember taking that particular photo. That’s wonder.
I feel the same way when writing. Wonder, being in the moment, being in the flow; these are all examples of wonder.
So what does the word Wonder mean to you?
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;
We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying. For there truly is no end.
