The Gift of Awe

I came across some writings of Rabbi Heschel in his book, I Asked For Wonder. In it he says, “What we cannot comprehend by analysis, we become aware of in Awe”.

And later, “Forfeit your sense of awe, let your conceit diminish your ability to revere, and the universe becomes a marketplace for you”.

These words apply so well to the realm of dreams. In working with dreams, I am often left in a state of awe and wonder that reconnects me to the mystery beyond everyday existence.
