If we knew what was in store for us in life next then there would be no point.
We are sold certainty and there is a never-ending obsession with wanting to take away all risk and sanitise everything.
The magic and wonder of life unfold in the present moment where there is a risk, an certainty, the unknown.
The more we try to protect the less life has to offer.
We search throughout life for the extraordinary, for the special moment, for that amazing place, for something to thrill us…interestingly, when we are somewhere extraordinary or in a great moment, we miss it because we’re too busy snapping it and putting it on Instagram and then searching for the next extraordinary moment!
The thing is that we do not need to search, the extraordinary is here all the time. We just need to stop looking for it and we will see it. The looking is a search into the future, a resistance to what is already here, a denial of the existing moment and being wrapped up in our thoughts, in a dreamlike state.
There is wonder to see all the time but we miss it.
