The story of ReachingAwe

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”Albert Einstein

Hi, I’m Ken.

In 2013, I began a journey of personal and spiritual growth.

I didn’t mean to. In fact, it was entirely unplanned and totally against my will. At the time, I was deeply depressed and facing the most difficult challenges of my life. I tried hard to avoid discovering more about who I really am and why I was experiencing such deeper pain. See, I thought I already had the answers to life. If I just followed the plan for my life, everything would eventually work out fine.

But the Universe didn’t let me off so easily. It turned out that my “answers” were just ways of avoiding the real questions.

So, one by one, I started investigating those questions. Now, I’ve learned to be more open, peaceful, spiritual and happy than I’ve ever been. More than anything, I’m in awe of this incredible journey we all have the chance to take.

I don’t claim to have answers. But I’ve found that the universe seems to be set up so that when we ask the right questions, we find exactly the meaning we need at exactly the time we need it.

I learned that everything in this life is a miracle, and we can actively choose to see it that way. Opening ourselves up to awe and wonder gives us the chance to experience new miracles every day. And when we do that, we uncover the growth, peace, and happiness we’ve been unable to see.

As I looked around for resources to help me on my journey, I found that there just aren’t many available. I kept asking: Why aren’t there more discussions and blogs for “normal” people who are seeking not just happiness, but meaningful personal change and spiritual growth?

So I started one, hoping some of the things I’m learning will be useful for you as well. My aim is to explore how to seek the wonder and mystery in everyday life, and follow the unexpected opportunities that arise. Because when you know where to look, change and growth can always be found. (For example, just one song inspired me to start this blog.)
