Currie's Gratitude 16 July 2014

...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?   [L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables]

Staying open to Wonder is a requirement for me. It is non-negotiable. Even with this cancer stuff. I approach it with Wonder. I look at this experience as an immense opportunity to learn, discover, BE wrong, and even BE afraid.

When you don't cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought.   [Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose]

I am moving into another phase of treatment and again I have a LOT of questions. And I know they will remain questions that can only BE answered by Experience. I try to imagine, I read, and I hope that I will BE strong enough to remain open to Wonder.

You'll never find a rainbow if you're looking down  [Charles Chaplin]

It is good to realise this truth. And it is truly true!!!

I love you, Currie
