Henry David Thoreau understood that conscious life was a gift for which the highest form of gratitude was to know it in all its depths. This grace of conscious life, of having a mind that can know “this moment is like this,” is the root of all wonder, from which gratitude flows. The wonder, the mystery, is that you, like everyone else, are given this short, precious time of conscious embodiment in which you can directly know life for yourself. –Phillip Moffitt, “Emotional Chaos to Clarity”
