The true wonder of the world is available everywhere, in the minutest parts of our bodies and in the vast expanses of the cosmos, and in the interconnectedness of these and all things.  —Michael Stark—

Let’s take a moment and look around ourselves. All that we see has its connection to us and to all other parts of this vast universe, and there is a universal rhythm with whose beat all life is in tune. Our existence, all existence, is to be marveled at. How perfect is the rosebud, the baby’s toe nails,

the dog’s sense of direction. We are not alive by accident. The beat of our hearts is necessary to the continued beat of the Universe. The whole is maintained by the combination of all the parts. Life is sacred, all life. Friends and enemies are sacred. Lovers, children, parents are sacred. When we’ve come to understand this fact, understand it to the depths of our being, we’ll know love; we’ll know ourselves. Most of all we’ll feel the peace that accompanies faith in the vastness and the rightness of the Universe and all it contains. Everything as far as my eyes can see and heart can feel is contributing a part to my personal existence today.
