To be spiritual is to be amazed

“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement…get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”

-Abraham Joshua Heschel

  1. Yes. A sense of awe. A sense of delight. Everything is a gift. This is what I try and “return to”…what I am drawn back to again and again – in every cell of my body, in my perspective, in the way I go about my day, in my writing. Lovely. Lisa

  2. So true!”To be spiritual is to be amazed.” When your eyes are wide open, when your exterior has enough of a crack in it for your spirit to look through, you can’t help but be amazed. Lovely quote.

  3. As I navigate my way through the ups and downs of life with a newborn once more, I find myself returning to this post over and over again. It never fails to lift me up (both physically and mentally). Thank you for sharing this.
