Thirsty for Wonder
“So you sit down to meditate not only because it helps you to find rest in the arms of the formless Beloved but also because it increases your chances of being stunned by beauty when you get back up. Encounters with the sacred that radiate from the core of the ordinary embolden you to cultivate stillness and simple awareness. In the midst of a world that is begging you to distract yourself, this is no easy practice. Yet you keep showing up. You are indomitable. You are thirsty for wonder.”― Mirabai Starr, Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics
When stuck in smallness, in scarcity, in thoughts that swirl on the same, quiet.
Answers arise, mystery unfolds, patience is deepened in anchoring in silence, in ease.
A deep breath, slow down, wander into wonder, a deep well beneath your feet, a wide-open field.
Held by the warm arms of the formless, stunned by beauty, awakened into the moment.
“From wonder into wonder existence opens.” – Lao Tzu
