Beyond Our Senses

 
 

Each of us is blessed with a pair of eyes to see the beauties around us.

Each of us is blessed with a pair of ears to hear the melodies of chirping birds and listen to music and spoken words of others.

Each of us is blessed with a nose to smell the crisp scent of nature.

Each of us is blessed with a tongue to taste the sweetness of fruits of various trees and shrubs.

Each of us is blessed with a distinct voice to speak and be heard.

Each of us is blessed with a pair of hands to hold a delightful bambino in our arms, to embrace friends and loved ones.

Each of us is blessed with a throbbing heart, to love and be compassionate. And to have it as the core of our being—our basis—one that is free from prejudice—in seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, speaking and feeling all things in the most meaningful ways.

Because. . .

The beauties of other living things exude by simply being themselves.

The melodies of chirping birds are harmonized by their free-spirit. While music is a deeper way to speak to one’s soul. And, when we listen to others, we are doing more of ourselves a favor by achieving greater understanding.

The crisp, fresh scent of nature is filtering the earth from all toxicities.

The sweetness of fruits from trees and shrubs is caused by their resiliency and inner strength.

The distinctness of our voice is needed to create a better world.

The gentle and endearing ways of carrying a precious newborn are the same ways we should always regard and cherish life. And embrace is the most achievable way to share the warmth of our loving human spirits.

And more than our organs of sensory, each of us is blessed with a brain, a mind to critically think as we strive to put our senses in good use and our resources vested to a common good.

Because we can always do better.
