Finding beauty and wonder through stillness

There is something about flying in an airplane at 22,000 feet, staring out the window at the clouds above and the vastness below, that really puts things in perspective.

Looking out at the horizon, I was reminded of just how small we really are and how much greatness and wonder there is out there.

It’s so easy to get caught up in “life”. We focus on what we have, what we don’t have, what we hate, what we love, where we have to be tomorrow and where we want to be a month from now, a year from now, ten years from now. All the while losing sight of the beauty and stillness of the present moment; the Now.

We are so busy chasing the future and reliving the past, that we forget that all of life and love is available in the present moment. And only in the present moment, can we truly appreciate all that we are.

Looking out the window at the blue horizon beyond, the clouds above and the wonderous mountains below, I became present to all the beautiful things in my life. My health and the health of my family. The abundance of love I have to give and receive. The beauty of the future unknown, and the magic of everything in the unseen universe.

You only need to be present and still, to truly appreciate the magnificence of your life.

Appreciating the NOW,
