And when the event, the big change in your life, is simply an insight—isn’t that a strange thing? That absolutely nothing changes except that you see things differently and you’re less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result: isn’t it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything you’ve experienced before? You see things more clearly and you know that you’re seeing them more clearly. And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life, this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about. Moments like this.
Jonathan Franzen, The Corrections.
I feel so differently than I did a month ago.
I am less fearful, less anxious. I am stronger, I am seeing clearer.
And if this is what it means to love life and love God, than the last month was the most worthwhile series of events.
