“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change.”~ Buddha
Imagine if we suddenly saw into the miracle of human beings as Thomas Merton did on a street corner in Louisville, Kentucky on March 18, 1958. We would be so awe-struck that we might laugh, cry out, fall down, or become numb. Surely, we would change the way we lived the rest of our days.
Our life would change if we saw clearly the miracle of a tree, a blade of grass, a bird, of light, of the air we breathe, of water.
Slowly, it is happening. Despite evidence to the contrary, we are waking up. We’re beginning to see less dimly. But why wait? Until we see clearly, let’s choose to live reverently and lovingly, as if we have seen.
