Imagine what your life would be like if you could recapture the sense of wonder and excitement you experienced when you were a child.
When you were a very young child, you probably lived in an almost perpetual state of awe and wonder.
Everything unfolding around you was new and exciting.
The world was a smorgasbord for your senses as you experienced an endless array of things to see, touch, taste and smell.
With your eyes you saw clouds shifting across the sky, a train speeding past, dappled light dancing through the leaves of a tree.
With your skin, you felt a velvet curtain, the fur of a cat, grass beneath your bare feet.
With your tongue, you tasted apple sauce, sunflower seeds, rain on your tongue.
With your nose, you smelled bread baking in the oven, your mother’s perfume, the bloom of a rose.
Every new idea you were exposed to gave you new ways to think about the world and your place in it…
And because of this, your life was filled with ecstatic joy and deep fulfillment because you were in a near-constant state of active expansion and evolution, ever becoming “more” than you were the day before.
This perpetual state of awe and wonder also made you feel more connected to the world around you, and more a part of it, and it gave you a sense that this world and the whole Universe were important and needed to be cared for and preserved.
But as you grew older, so many of the things that used to make you “ooh” and “ahh” became commonplace as your mind turned its focus to figuring out what kind of power you had over the world around you and how you could become the master of your own life and destiny…
And as a result, those feelings of wonder and awe became fewer and further between.
Think back on the past 24 hours of your life; how many times did you say or even think an “ooh” or an “ahh” at something you saw, touched, tasted or smelled?
For most people in the modern world, the answer to that question is probably once or twice or not at all.
And that’s really too bad, because the Universe is, of course, still filled with things to feel awe and wonder over, and more appear every single day.
Even exploring all the ways your own body can move and the intricate functioning of its internal processes are wonders that could occupy a whole lifetime of study if one was so inclined to undertake it — and many are!
The problem isn’t that you’ve lost the capacity to experience those wonderful feelings, it’s just that you’re either not looking for them, or you’re looking at the chaotic and complicated world around you with eyes that are fogged by your fears about the future and your regrets about the past…
And this prevents you from seeing the miracles that still surround you at every turn, and makes it harder for you to show how much you care about the world and the Universe of which you are a part.
In this online Masterclass, renowned spiritual teachers Matthew Fox, Patricia Cota-Robles, and Sister Jenna will show you how to regain the state of awe and wonder you experienced when you were very young.
