1st Steps on the Earth

Today, 13 month old Shivani took her 1st Steps upon the Earth. I could see her noticing, noticing, noticing. She kept looking down. Other times, she seemed to be sensing those new feelings beneath her feet. Sometimes, she would fall and she would bring up something new and magical to notice and share.

What an amazing celebration it was to be a part of this, her special day of 1st steps upon the Earth. I wonder how different our lives would be if we would walk upon the Earth and always feel that 1st day. Surely, we would be present in the World that sustains us in a very different way. A kind of Awe and Magic would permeate the core of our being. Perhaps we taller and older ones have some remembering to do.
