Our dog has discovered a nest of baby robins in the front yard tree. He runs out and tries to jump up to reach them. As he did this yesterday, a small piece of the nest fell. I went over to see if they were ok, and when they heard me, they poked their little swaying heads out of the nest and opened their mouths, chirping for food.
Life is so amazing!
With all the hustle and bustle in the world, I’ve seen how easy it is to lose touch with life’s magical side. Have you experienced this?
If you think about it, life is pretty miraculous!
Just look at physics. Did you know that the earth is rotating at 1,000 mph?! Not only that, while it is spinning through space, it is orbiting the sun at 66,616 mph!!
This leaves me wondering… If the universe started with a big bang, what contained the ball that exploded? Nothingness? That is impossible. Nothing doesn’t exist.
What is on the other side of the edge of the universe? Or is there no edge? How is infinity possible? Yet, there can’t be an ending because what would be on the other side of the end?
While these are astronomically exciting aspects of living on a planet and spinning through the universe at record-breaking speeds, the human body is also crazy amazing!
Did you know that the body produces 25 million new cells every second? Or that thoughts (brain information) travel at 268 mph?! I also learned that the brain could generate 23 watts of electricity. Where in the body is the electricity generated?
Here is another one… Brain tissue the size of a grain of sand contains 1 billion synapsis and 100,000 neurons. Is your mind blown yet?
In high school, my friends and I would joke that we were starting a new religion called Wowism. We would sit back, look at the world and think, WOW!
Integrative Coaching includes the mind, body, energy, and spiritual domains of human potential. When people get in touch with these aspects of themselves, transformation is leveraged, and life goes from ordinary to WOW.
Today’s resource is a video from one of my favorite astrophysicists, Neil deGrasse Tyson. He offers a perspective shift on life and meaning.
As Einsten is quoted as saying:
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
