Ground of Being Meditation – Day 3

In accounts from astronauts describing their experience of seeing the Earth from a distance, floating in infinite space, they recall a keen sense of awe, wonder, and blissful curiosity. Many say that they saw the Earth is a living organism of which they are a part. This clearing reveals the truth of our term “Mother Earth.”

I would compare, with humility, that meditation offers us a similar experience of ourselves as we become the observer: observing this living vessel which we inhabit and which holds and supports us. Observing the living complexity of ourselves as body, mind, and spirit can certainly generate a sense of wonder and curiosity; and perhaps, even awe.

Ah, to move through the world with curiosity and awe. Now that’s living. Happy meditating.
