Dare to care, stay aware

“There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Albert Einstein

Life is so full of wonder it hurts. So most people refuse to see it.
Instead of dealing with both sides of the coin.
That life is both awesome and awful.

Maybe that’s why we humans have such a need for one or another facet of the Divine.

I let my tears flow, my hearth and soul bursting with life.

I remember my amazement when I learned and understood that, YES the whole planet and every living thing on it belongs to ONE gigantic ecosystem.

Everything interconnected.

How much awe I felt when biology taught me in how very many ways things could go wrong between conception and birth.
And still most children are born healthy.

The amazement at carrying, a growing, living being within you.
The awe and wonder to hold that child in your arms for the very first time.
The astonishment in seeing the child grow and learn, and realize you should be learning as least as much as the child.

The feeling of wonder at seeing true love and care in the eyes of another.

Love, Life, Nature, the Universe, our Reality is so full of beautiful, wondrous, amazing things. Yet most of humanity fail to connect and instead hide behind a busy rat-race and blue screens.

  1. You are absolutely right. Sadly we humans think we are so clever and can manage everything by ourselves; but we aren’t clever. We are instead stupid and cruel and that the rest of the world belongs to us rather that we being a small part ofhe world and sadly doing so much harm endangering the lives of many living things incuding ourselves!

  2. There is so much truth in this poem – yes, life is both awesome and awful, and it is sad that ‘most of humanity hide behind a busy rat-race and blue screens’.
