A Strange and Magical Fact

From Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom, by John O’Donohue

“It is a strange and magical fact to be here, walking around in a body, to have a whole world within you and a world at your fingertips outside you. It is an immense privilege, and it is incredible that humans manage to forget the miracle of being here.”

– – –

Today, let us acknowledge the miracle of being here. The immense privilege of being here. Of having a body. Do we ever acknowledge the privilege of having bodies? And still maintain all these individual worlds within them; it is indeed a miracle.
