A Contemplation

In the busy and messy world of the United States at the opening of the 21st Century, we often leave aside our feelings.

Sure, it is a problem we are getting better at dealing with. There is exponetially greater facility and respect with regard to feeling than there was but a few short decades ago.

The true majesty and power of feeling, though, this is still not quite reflected in our common attitudes.

If you doubt me, consider: What is the worth of a true feeling of rest and satisfaction?

Americans, I'm sad to say, look for tangibles rather than the intangibles. We hike to claim we bagged a mountain peak, rather than to enjoy the sunset. We're afraid to say "nothing" when someone asks us what we're doing. Too few understand that doing nothing is when we're most connected to all things.

I love the insight on your blog.
