Here is a quote from Leonardo Da Vinci that I came across for the first time several days ago. He said,
“Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses – especially learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”
We can still breathe in the mystical nature of this man five hundred plus years after his death. He was definitely of a very high vibration, and his choice of words is as significant as ever. He wanted us to develop beyond our normal senses, to develop a true appreciation and understanding of the interconnectedness of life.
If we don’t move below the surface, we miss out on the depth and breadth of another whole layer of reality that encircles and enlivens us. The same building blocks of the universe live within us. “The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff,” so stated Carl Sagan.
Da Vinci wanted us to have eyes that see and ears that hear what is hidden, veiled so that we could start to unlock the mysteries of our own energies and of those of the world around us. Be open to the unknown and what it can offer you. Pay attention. Dream. Create. Laugh. Question. Wonder. Study. Relate. There’s so much more to who we are.
