The world is far bigger than you perceive it to be.

The world is far bigger than you perceive it to be.

The next time you are outside, just stop walking for a moment.  Just stop thinking about everything for a moment.  Just stop…

 

And listen.

 

Listen to the sound of the wind in the trees.  Listen to the sound of the birds singing with their tweets.  Listen to the sound of the world around you, and for a moment realize, how much more is happening around you than you normally think.

The world is a far bigger place than you perceive it to be.

Take a moment and look out at the world around you-and really look.  Take your time, do it slowly, examine the things you see.  Take your time…

 

And really look.

 

Look and see as the wind blows through the trees, rustling those leaves, as it blows sweet and cool onto your face.  Look and see the beautiful sapphire and peach blue bird or the magnificent brown sparrow as they sing their sweet songs.  Look and see the squirrels and chipmunks as they play, bounding after one another around, and around the trees and fields.

The world is a far bigger place than you perceive it to be.

Turn your gaze beyond your surroundings, to the farthest point that you can see.  Look to the horizons, how far away they are…

 

And pick a point.

 

Pick a point out on the horizon.  Any point.  You can go there.  It doesn’t matter how far, you can walk, hike, or swim there.  You can actually just set out and go to that point way away out there.  All you have to do is start.  Anywhere you see, you can actually go to.

Open up your eyes, and hear, look, and feel the world.

The world is far bigger than you perceive it to be.
