Going-to-the-Sun Road is an engineering marvel of road building in Glacier National Park. Hairpin curves overlook tremendous drops into the valley and rivers below, while towering peaks above cast shadows and waterfalls onto the road. The best and easiest way to experience it is via a red shuttle, but many visitors choose to use their own cars, so the road is gridlocked with vehicles. Hiking trails are crowded with the human footprint, which puts pressure on wildlife, like the amazing, sure-footed, white mountain goats. Close encounters with them are often the talk of the trip, yet because of the traffic and crowds these extraordinary experiences are diminishing.

If you are losing your peace in your quest for peace, you are not on the road to peace. The road to peace is peace.  Alan Cohen

Sometimes in life you find an extraordinary place and you then return to it so many times that it loses its wonder and mystery. Or maybe social media makes it into a commonplace cultural event—a happening that everyone now knows of, talks of, and writes about . . . and for you, this rubs the shine right off. Now is the time to reclaim the wonder and mystery of life. Find a new way to engage with your favorite place or allow life to guide you to your new magic spot. Experiencing the wonder, awe and majesty of life bring so much peace and expansion, it’s worth any journey. By open to your vortex of wonder wherever you go.

Spiritual Contemplation: Do you have a special place that reminds you to wonder? Is it time for you to be guided to the possibility of a vibrant place in consciousness or on earth to feel the magic and awe of life? Follow where you are led.

Affirmation: I am open to the wonder and awe of life. I am open to the wonder of places that feel my heart with magic!
