Traversing the Edge of Wonder
“When we walk slowly, the world can fully appear. Not only are the creatures not frightened away by our haste or aggression, but the fine detail of fern or flower, or devastation and disruption, become visible. Many of us hurry along because we do not want to see what is going on in and around us. We are afraid to let our senses touch the body of suffering or the body of beauty.”
― Roshi Joan Halifax
What gateways to awareness are emerging in this moment? Where do you sense suffering? Where are the thresholds of beauty and wonder?
