remembering moment

remembering is a dance of wonder

sometimes a piece of ourselves
our joy
our wonder
gets put on the shelf
or perhaps just wanders away for a while
but the beautiful thing is that we can always come back again
and find the source of our wonder
there are things that bring us back to ourselves
that help us remember
we are here to celebrate the beauty around us

Rabbi Abraham Heschel wrote
"to live the spiritual life means to live in a state of "radical amazement."
The origin of word radical, radicalis, means to "get at the root of things."
To live in wonder is to engage in amazement at the root of our being"

if you want the truth
I will tell you the truth:
the God whom I love
is inside
