A wider life

awe truly is all around is, if only we take the time to look*
Jonah Paquette

Most of us then default to one of a handful of temples and filters for all their experiences; everything gets pulled inside what my little mind already agrees with.**
Richard Rohr

I sense there exists a critical link between awe and integrity.

If I open myself to and connect myself with the larger world around me and beyond, and do the same with others, and give my true self more attention too, I give myself a chance of growing connectedness: that is, the larger perspective of integrity, out of which I I’ve myself the chance of making better choices, as Richard Rohr points out:

the opposite of contemplation is not action – it is reaction^.
