Silently, steadily, relentlessly, this planet spins round and round. Night becomes day, winter melts into spring, again and again without fail.
Unimaginable is the sum of energy necessary to make it all happen. Yet here it is, continuing on and on as an everyday experience.
To know the wonder of this existence, even for a single day, is to be fortunate beyond calculation. The power, the beauty, the spectacle, the potential, all stretch out from you in every direction.
Think for a moment about what you’re choosing to do with it all. Are you making the most of the wondrous possibilities in which you’re constantly immersed?
Sometimes it’s easy to forget how good you have it. Sometimes life’s disruptions, big and small, can make it seem that things are not so good at all.
Yet here you are, alive, aware, and connected to the wondrous possibilities. Realize what that all means, and use it to make some new wonder, right now.
