almost a shame that we do tend to notice the beauty and
wonder of this world when we're in our "high"
states, when something has pushed us into a feeling or a
condition that allows us to see clearly just how wonderful
this world is. We tend to notice the marvelous
things more easily when our senses have reached a certain
level, and it's not always easy to reach that kind of
state on a conscious level--often it's some outside
influence that brings us there.
it be nice if we could reach that state on our own,
whenever we wanted to? Wouldn't it be even nicer if
we could always be in such a state of mind that we always
noticed the wonder and the beauty of our world and the
things and people in it? What would our lives be
like if our hearts and minds and eyes were open enough all
the time to see clearly just how wonderful this world and
our place in it are?
it is possible to make life so. It does take quite a
bit of work to get there, and most of us put most of our
effort elsewhere, so we don't end up making much progress
in this area. But if we did work at opening our eyes
and noticing the world, we would get better at it.
If we did stop every now and then to remind ourselves of
just how many beautiful things are around us all the time,
we'd start to see them more regularly, without having to
stop and remind ourselves.
may be worth a try for you to stop now and then and remind
yourself of what you could be seeing, and then actually
looking around and trying to see the beauty even in the
most normal of things. Everything takes practice and
focus if we want to do something well, and this particular
effort will definitely be worth whatever you put in to it.
