“SONDER”, noun: “The realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. (The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows)

Or, as we astrologers might put it, every point (and every person) in an infinite universe is central, and radiates its (his/her) shining uniqueness into the vastness. Each of us at the very center, with concentric rings of others surrounding, held less and less closely with greater and greater distance. But, think of this, too: each dimensionless point (or person), when looked at from close to, opens — into yet another infinite universe. And each point in that one, expands into yet another. There is no end to the inherent spaciousness in which we “live and move and have our being.”

To me, what’s really special about this video are both the speaker’s grave and caring tone and the parade of heart-felt images. Each and every heart is central, pulsing the mysterious LOVE that we call, off hand — as if it’s no big deal, as if it’s nothing special! — — the “life force.”

    This is absolutely gorgeous – if I had a philosophy of life, this artist manifests it – in “sonder,” dead reckoning” (in which I’m trapped these days), and others. Thank you for posting this!
