I believe that poetry is the beating, passionate pulse of life, or as near to it as mere words can convey…
“I love the abstract, delicate, profound, vague, voluptuously wordless sensation of living ecstatically.“
How much passion is captured in this glorious statement! When I first came upon these luscious words by Anais Nin I felt a spark of utter kinship. It was such a “Yes!” moment, since this is what I think of when I contemplate my ideal life, what I feel reverberating throughout my soul when I am fully experiencing it.
Ecstatically living means living in a state of rapturous, inspiring delight. Is it a constant state of being, well no, not exactly. That would actually dilute the feelings, not to mention it would be exhausting. Just like we must have night to fully appreciate the day, we must have solid, steady, mild, certain, plain times of living to make the ecstatic times all the more delicious.
That said, each day holds dreamy, euphoric moments worth rhapsodizing upon. By taking the time to notice and appreciate them, to revel and be thrilled by them, you begin to weave “the abstract, delicate, profound, vague, voluptuously wordless sensations of living ecstatically” into your life. You enrich your being with the very reasons life is worth living and you take none of it for granted. It’s truly amazing.
By taking notice of all those little moments, and intertwining their magic with your own, you begin to realize that even the most mundane of things has it’s own kind of wonderment. You unlock one of the greatest mysteries and sources of power in life ~ all life is worthwhile and every experience, from the difficult to the awesome has a purpose, a meaning. Life is poetry in that way.
