Life is not happening to you. Life is responding to you.
One of the most important aspects of mastery is being willing to take responsibility for your own state of consciousness. What would your experiences be like if you viewed everything as a miracle? Every interaction and every breath would simply become a loving conversation between you and the Divine.
This connectedness shifts our perceptions in a profound way. In order to remain aware, we must learn to rise above the mechanisms of the mind which seeks only to remove the magic and mystery from life.
Choosing to see the magical is the difference between viewing a tree and quoting all the facts that you may know about it compared to quietly opening your heart to it in order to experience its essence, patience and wisdom. Each approach comes from a different level of consciousness. The latter, more expanding experience brings a sense of awe, sacredness and respect into the equation.
Practice experiencing the mysterious in nature. Move gently through the world and allow your vision to transform the mundane into the miraculous.
