Meditative Monday

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

I think this is a really important message.  Have you ever tried looking at the world though the eyes of a child, an ant, the fey etc.  Taking the time to consciously attempt to alter ones perspective is an act that I believe opens up a whole new world to the viewer.  We often long for the innocence and joy that comes from seeing the world through a child's eyes - why not make the choice to do just that next time you go to the park. 

Even just taking a moment to stop and really 'see' the world is an important daily act.  We spend so much time racing through to the next thing in life we forget to really see the world.  How often do you pause and admire the trees, actually look at the night sky, watch the sun rise, look at how the wind plays with the leaves?  Try to do it, try to find a moment each day to open new eyes to the world.
