AN ATTITUDE OF WOW
This is where some nurturing kind of rituals serve us well. And for me, there is no better ritual than the natural one that happens around us all every day. No one is excluded from this one. It just seems that most human fail to enter into it, and in so doing miss out on the nurturing beauty that is always being offered.
I find this observation from Kathleen Raines very profound and applicable here....and helpful.
"Strangest of all is the ease with which the vision is lost, consciousness contracts, we forget over and over again, until recollection is stirred by some icon of beauty. Then we remember and wonder why we ever forgot."
