Wonder

Nature puts one, evokes in one, rather, the innate sense of wonder that we are all born with. It is the nature of the bird to glide across the firmament, it is the nature of the tree to rise, prevail, in all its beauty, symmetry, majesty. It is the nature of the breeze to cool, to caress, to remind one of an elsewhere where beauty reigns. And it is the nature of man to wonder at all this. To wonder, to know the true beauty of every creature, every movement of nature.

This state of wonder is our true state. It is where we are when we are with nature, it is also where we are when we act, not as agents of self-interest, but as manifestations of nature’s forces.

Wonder is the innate human state.

Every moment of beauty, every moment of truth, every passion that undoes the knots of our being is a moment of wonder.

It is a moment when we look, without self-assertion, without labelling, without choosing, acceptance or denial. Wonder is simply when my soul looks at your soul, without any goal.

In the sunset, there is wonder. When it rains, nature invites us to wonder, and the silences of the night – they are wonder itself.

  1. हरी हरी वसुंधरा पे नीला नीला ये गगन
    के जिस पे बादलों की पालकी उड़ा रहा पवन
    दिशायें देखो रंगभरी, चमक रही उमंगभरी
    ये किस ने फूल फूल पे किया सिंगार है
    ये कौन चित्रकार है, ये कौन चित्रकार
    ये कौन चित्रकार है

    तपस्वीयों सी हैं अटल ये पर्वतों की चोटियाँ
    ये सर्प सी घूमेरदार, घेरदार घाटियाँ
    ध्वजा से ये खड़े हुये हैं वृक्ष देवदार के
    गलिचे ये गुलाब के, बगीचे ये बहार के
    ये किस कवी की कल्पना का चमत्कार है
    ये कौन चित्रकार है

    कुदरत की इस पवित्रता को तुम निहार लो
    इस के गुणों को अपने मन में तुम उतार लो
    चमकालो आज लालिमा अपने ललाट की
    कण कण से झाँकती तुम्हें छबि विराट की
    अपनी तो आँख एक है, उस की हज़ार हैं
    ये कौन चित्रकार है

  2. beautiful! who is the poet? where did you find this?
