Endings and beginnings are the natural order.
Memories and plans keep moving us further.
Yet it is the present, gifted, that is the wonder.
These are the words that just came to me, as I recall what captured my attention this week.
J.R.R. Tolkein's 'Not all those who wander are lost', and a friend's penchant for 'wandering in wonder'.
And, when put together, wandering and wonder, it is the finding, of the gifted present, that allows us to ponder.
Our 'in the moment' experience, of two worlds deeply. The inner. And the outer.
How we react. The 'oh', and the 'wow' factor.
To what is going on with our senses, and the world around us.
The gifted present.
Found, not lost, in the wandering wonder.
Such rich fodder, for the ignited soul.
Taking it all in, as it captures us whole.
An aliveness experience beyond all compare.
A magical edifice for our DNA.
Taking care in the noticing, of the reactions life brings.
And in the processing, as body wisdom sets in.
Experiencing. Then letting go.
Surrendering. So more wonder becomes so.
Wanderings, meanderings. And the presence it brings.
