By the deficits , we may know the talents, by the exceptions
we may discern the rules, by studying pathology we may construct
a model of health. And - most important - from this model we
evolve the insights and tools we need to affect our lives, mould
our own destinies, change ourselves and our society in ways
that, as yet we can only imagine.
The world shall not perish from lack of wonders but from
lack of wonder .
I love these quotes the first one really speaks to to me and
confirms that we need to recognise our pathologies, our
personal pathologies along with those of our society. I
believe that by working on our thinking we can address our
and ' cure ' our own pathologies and as we do this we have
a positive effect on our environment , the people we interact
with and thus also on our society.
The second one gives me my WORD for today WONDER.
Just for a minute close your eyes and recall the last time you
you consciously experienced WONDER. GO ON DO IT !
Nature always evokes this sense in me and that is one reason
I love to take trips away.
But WONDER can be induced just by slowing down and
taking the time to WONDER at the magic of a flower.
Or the miracle that is an APPLE. Contemplating their growth
from spring blossoms fills me with awe.
So why not take some time to cultivate your own WONDER.
The rewards are countless.
With LOVE and WONDER at our connection. Ann
