Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon?

Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon?

How did it make you feel?grand canyon 2

Did it fill you with wonder and awe?

Did it startle you out of your ego?


Did you feel the infinite grandeur

And timelessness Of the universe?

Did it make you feel small

Yet in a strange but unmistakable way

Infinitely large, too

As infinite as the universe itself?


Spiritual enlightenment

Is when we suddenly realize

That we’re staring at the wonder

Of the Grand Canyon

Each and every moment

Of each and every day.

  5. I HAVE been to the Grand Canyon, and not only stood in speechless amazement at the incomparable beauty but since then have never thought of TIME in the ‘limited’ way I used to. My sister and I used to call each other when we were stuck in traffic and remind each other of ‘real’ time….the time of the Grand Canyon.
