I am so in love with myself, my life, and just everyone and everything!
Reverence … until today, I had always thought of this as a religious term. But I was reading about reverence today in “Rob Brezny’s Astrology Newsletter,” and it made me newly appreciate the word. The definition of reverence is: a feeling or attitude of deep respect tinged with awe.
I realized that I have personally had moments of reverence that were transformational, but I honestly didn’t know what to call them. I had always called them zen moments, but the word reverence is much more fittingly … provocative.
In these moments, I have had the experience that can only be described as the opening of my third eye. You may think that sounds like bullshit, but that’s just how it feels to me – a sensation in the middle of my forehead that made me truly believe that there is some transcendent beauty that is part of us – that connects us to each other and the universe. Here are some examples of when I have experienced reverence:
- In the presence of incredible art of all kinds (literature, music, performing arts, visual arts, etc.).
- Contemplating friends who are amazingly resilient in the face of hardships, and still remain incomprehensibly open and loving and caring.
- When I am knocked out by some unimaginable natural beauty.
Contemplate this thought today. Have you had moments like I’m describing? What were they? Spend some time today just marveling at them; revering them. See if you can seek some out today.
