    Radical amazement is a very basic sense of astonishment, wonder, and awe about all existence.  Very unfortunately, we as a people have lost awareness that all that is is sacred.  We separated the sacred from life and nature, and then seem to have forgotten the sacred.  We don't live in an awareness that all that is is an incomprehensible mystery and miracle.  I feel radical amazement when I slow down, be still, open my eyes and see the wonder that we live in.  Some times of feeling radical amazement have been during reflection and meditation and when I take the time to see and appreciate nature and in close connection with another.  Reminding myself frequently that all that is is one and sacred helps me keep my sense of wonder alive.
