Aristotle is often attributed to saying, “We are what we habitually do,” but one could also argue that “We are what we habitually see.” Upon reflection, we notice that we do not see the world as it is, so much as we see it as we are. Our experience of the world is dictated just as much by our subjective framing and perception as it is on the objective reality. What we choose to be aware of and pay attention to, not only dictates the path of our lives, it also dictates the very nature of how we experience life on a daily basis. Transcendence is first and foremost a way of seeing. It’s a broadening of vision that allows us to see beyond what is most immediate, and find the meaning of the events and relationships in our lives. Transcendence opens us up to the possibility that perhaps there is more here than we realize.
THIS WEEK: Reflect on the following. When was the last time you experienced a sense of wonder in life? What did this feel like for you? How might you be able to experience more wonder in your daily life?
All the best,
