The world is full of wonder. Whether we are in awe, aw, ah, or aah.
I’m full of awe at the thought of how insignificant and small I feel on this planet while I stand on this cliff over the ocean.
I exclaim ‘Aw!’ when I see my friend’s new bundle of joy that has just come forth into the world.
I respond to my friend’s bad news with ‘Ah’ as I get their sadness but do not know how to comfort her.
I let out a guttural ‘AHH!’ as I am frustrated by the emotions I feel over things I cannot control.
There are so many ways to express ourselves with the same sounding word though it is spelled differently.
I look at the world and see so many people. I am in awe of what they have done and aspire to do. I see friends living lives I wish I had but think of how difficult they really have it, but don’t let on to the difficulty.
I wonder what I was like to walk through a forest here in California 400 years ago and to see the land before it was changed and grown up
I am afraid of heights, but I wonder what it would be like to have the power to fly. I have had dreams where I couldn’t fly, but I could jump high and float down slowly while having complete control and feeling as though I weigh nothing.
I wonder why I feel there is a greater power out there, but I do not know what it is or how we are connected. I wonder if all religions are based on truth and there is so much we just don’t know.
I wonder if we are all connected and if we never truly die because we cannot destroy matter, but only change its form. Does this mean that we have the power to do and change anything, but we lack the knowledge and the patience to learn?
I wonder if you really can become enlightened. If so, would you transcend humanity or does nothing actually happen?
I wonder how we came up with having a ‘soul’. How do we have a consciousness with free thought? How is it that we are a higher being from animals and have a different means of understanding? How did we develop any kind of knowledge and why is it so widely accepted?
I wonder why I always feel so alone even though I’m surrounded by people. Why do I feel the need to be loved by everyone I meet?
I wonder what other people wonder.
