I love the wide open spaces. I just came in from outside looking at the enormous starless sky with a giant full moon -- I felt awe and gratitude. I spontaneously thanked God. I remember being in Montana a year or so ago and looking out over an enormous terrain and a big sky that seemed endless (and maybe is), and again felt awe. In both situations, I forgot about the microdramas of life and appreciated the cosmos and my being part of it. I felt alive and had a sense of being part of a huge interconnected miracle. I breathed deep and took it in and didn't want the moment to end. For me, it was a spiritual moment beyond space and time. Those kind of glorious experiences of taking in and feeling part of a miraculous cosmos help me remember to be open to more such glorious moments.
