wonder...gratitude...enough




It seems to me
that everything in the light and air
ought to be happy;
Whoever is not in his coffin
and the dark grave,
let him know
he has enough.

~Walt Whitman


If our religion is based on salvation, our chief emotions will be fear and trembling.
If our religion is based on wonder, our chief emotion will be gratitude.

~Carl Jung

  5. Oh to be alive. Take it or leave it there's nought else; and how silly to leave with the puzzle half done. Play it. It's a game.

  8. Two great quotes, Bonnie. Wonder, gratitude, and enough -- the keys to the universe, freely available to those who seek liberation.

  9. Oh, I guess some people whose religion is based on salvation feel gratitude, and not exclusively or perhaps even chiefly "fear and trembling."
    For myself, I am filled with wonder and gratitude.
    Right on, Carl.
