Be amazed

Walk outside in the daytime, and be amazed at the wind as it blows. Look up at night, and be amazed at the size of the universe.

Be amazed that you cannot ever possibly know all the amazing things there are. Be amazed that you can indeed know an ever-growing number.

Be amazed at the smallest of details. Be amazed at the sweeping vistas that fill your vision.

Be amazed at the variety of people and their opinions and how they can still share a very real kinship. Be amazed that the ocean waves never cease, and that life goes on despite all its challenges.

Be amazed at what is new in the last hour, at all that has existed for centuries and even longer. Be amazed that you can take it all in and craft a unique sense of meaning to guide you forward.

Be amazed at the utter chaos of infinite possibility and at the magnificent order that emerges from it. Be amazed at your own amazement, and never let it leave you.
