Wake-up calls can be poignant, sweet and deeply moving parts of the human experience.
Actress Jennifer Anniston said, “I love that feeling of being in love, the effect of having butterflies when you wake up in the morning. That is special.”
Among the most profound wake-up calls is awakening to being in love with oneself, with the world, with all other humans, and with life itself. Yes, of course, we love romantically, and certainly we love our families and friends. Yet, how many of us are just now experiencing waking up to the love of life in all its forms?
Have you noticed an expansion of your loving nature far beyond those in your immediate circle of friends and family? Are you open to being in love with everything? What is the degree to which you cultivate gratitude for your waking up to loving beyond all ego concerns?
What kind of connection do you feel to animals in peril, oceans being damaged, hunger and plague? Can those experiences contribute to our “wake-up calls” as humans to make the world a better place for all life?
