Reverence is a deep sense of respect for marvels that surround us and that brought us into existence. It is an awareness of ourselves as small beings in an order beyond the grasp of any single human mind.
Rather than rushing about impulsively, we watch and listen with a sense of humility, delight and wonder. We are careful to avoid hasty action that can destroy an intricate or delicate balance that inspires our awe.
Reverence calls us to service. When we have a mindset of reverence, it seem natural to use our life energy to preserve, honor and elevate something greater than ourselves.
