YOU ARE AWESOME | Noah benShea
The word “awesome” means to be filled with awe.
For some of us that means, “Ahhh why bother to look.”
And that is, “Ahhh, too bad.”
To be filled with awe is to be filled with wonder and to witness the wonder. When a great sage was a child, he was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, and he answered, “Present.” To be witness the wonder of life, is to be “present.”
Of course, life is not always wonderful, but it is wonder filled,
just as a miracle is often our willingness to witness one.
It is no less the miracle of something positive rising in our life after the sunset of events we hoped would never end.
Awesome, is a child at birth crying out, “Hey, see me here, I am here. Hey!”
Awesome are lovers discovering that love is a ladder that allows us to climb out of ourselves.
Awesome is the healing touch of a physician witnessing wonder at the healing in his or her hands.
Awesome is witnessing the fortitude people under terrible odds can still bring to their lives.
Awesome is witnessing those who for whom exhaustion is not defeat, those who take their work seriously but not themselves, and all who choose humility over hubris.
Attitude is altitude.
The path to awesome is not ahead of you but within you.
Witness the best in you being born.
And you are witnessing awesome.
And you are a miracle.
Worthy of wonder.
