The Wonder Child

 photo P1080370.jpg

Whatever your personal religious beliefs, you cannot be in touch with your wonder child and not have a sense of something greater than yourself.

The wonder child is naturally religious.  He is childlike and believes in something greater than self with an unwavering faith.  The wonder child’s poetic soul touches the heart of being itself.

Your wonder child is the part of you that possesses in a human way that power which is most god-like: creative regeneration.

Most folks are not aware of their creative power because they stay congealed in the frozen grief of their wounded child.

~ John Bradshaw, Homecoming.

God does not die on the day we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illuminated by the steady radiance renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond reason.

~ Dag Hammarskjold.

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again
