One of the things I was able to do on vacation was go on a nature hike sponsored by the Aquarium. We walked down the boardwalk that we have been visiting for over a decade every year and learned that the area where we were staying was one of only four eco-systems of its nature in the United States at this time. My mom aptly pointed out that in all of our walking and exploring over the years, we never even knew that little piece of beautiful forest existed.
Something similar happened as new animals were pointed out to us in the water as well as explanations for what animals could best be found where. All of a sudden, we went from seeing one or two animals over the week to more than we can count.
It reminds me of the spiritual journey. We can be doing well on our own - but when someone else comes alongside us and starts to point out different things in a new way, all of a sudden it can be like an awakening of sorts. We can see things from a different perspective that were present with us all along.
