I’m sure you’ve met them before — the people that do a thousand things yet have no meaning or magnitude attached to the learning in the experience. They live overwhelmed and without wonder.
Is wonder learned through experience?
Or is wonder only provided in the context of meaning?
I wonder how many people comprehend they are merely living throughout the day just to survive and are unable or unwilling to express any interest in learning or forging memory.
That sort of life must be tasteless and bland and incredibly painful in its lack of human humidity.
To open up the mind and the body to embed all experiences — good and bad — builds character and informs morality and consecrates values and that, I believe, is the purpose of finding meaning in the wonder of experience.
