Awaken our Senses
February 26th, 2013 2:43 PM

The month of March begins a favorite time of year in Florida, as the orange blossoms spread perfumed aromas throughout the air.  We were created to experience, interpret, and savor the world through our senses . . . . our ability to smell, taste, hear, touch, see and interpret.  But in order for us to awaken and begin to understand our consciousness in its entirety, we need to understand these senses.

Pause for a moment each day and marvel at the natural gifts that have been so richly bestowed on us.  We can smell the spring flowers and orange blossoms, taste the fresh strawberries, hear the sand hill cranes and egrets, touch the palm trees and flowering plants, see the alligators and natural wildlife so unique to the tropical paradise surrounding us. 

George Eliot wrote, "If we had keen vision and feeling for all ordinary human life it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of the roar which lies on the other side of silence.  As it is, the quickest of us walks about well wadded with stupidity."

So, today, look up at the blue sky, hear the grass growing beneath your feet, inhale the scent of spring, and let the fruits of the earth "linger on your tongue."   

Life is short.   Use all of your senses to fully enjoy it!
