Wrap your heart around all that you perceive

photo and words below by Brian Thompson.

Always observe.

Let your awareness envelop everything around you.
Quieten your thoughts and listen.
Open your eyes and truly see.

Be the ever-present witness
to all of the magic that unfolds before you.
Expand your mind to envelop the entirety of the cosmos,
be wowed by the wonder that abounds
in even the tiniest of cracks.

Let your revelations
inspire all that you do,
influence all that you say,
and energize all that you create.

Wrap your heart
around all that you perceive;
share your reverie with the world.

“Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.”
―Mary Oliver
