Wonder is a complex emotion involving elements of surprise, curiosity, contemplation, and joy. It is perhaps best defined as a heightened state of consciousness and emotion brought about by. Regaining that sense of wonder is not about returning to an oblivious, dependent state. It’s applying said concepts to your adult life. Let yourself be awed by the little things in your grown up life. Keep the faith. Learn to trust again.
As adults, we need to make the time to develop our own Nature connection and to nurture our own sense of wonder, in order to share that with our young children. It may be challenging to make it a priority, but in the joy of Nature lies the motivation to live more lightly and to protect the Earth. To walk through life with a sense of wonder means you open up to a higher knowledge that is beyond the physical mind. Your tool to tap into this wisdom is your imagination. Your imagination is the conduit to your higher self, which is your true self, the one that knows the truth of who you are.
"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.".
