Beauty In The Pause

Do you ever just stop?  To sit.  Pause.  And watch nature?  Just being the observer.

As I write this, I’m sitting in the beauty of the greenery of my backyard.  The leaves are rustling, the air is mildly brisk, a plane fly’s overhead, children play next door, and off in the distance there’s faint 40’s style war music playing.  Oh, and a dove coo’s.

This is Bliss.  Clear and simple, loud and subtle.  The space is full.  There is no rush.  Only everything here to captivate and inspire us.

But wait, hold on, noooo…. It’s fading into the background…. you’re letting it slip away!

So many times we get lost in the race, worried about getting ahead, the next step.  Like hamsters stuck in a wheel, we are running in place.  Forgetting all that is in front of us-right-now.

But when we take pause, breaking from our habitual thoughts and routines, it allows space (Space: A continuous area or expanse that is free, available, or unoccupied) for new to enter.  Putting a chink in our wheels, opening us up to the endless possibility of everything.  Space for nature to come in and work its magic.  Because it is; magic.

I mean really.. If you stop to think about the gloriousness of the intelligence that created this world, and you, wouldn’t you just relax that tight grip you have on everything?

Life doesn’t happen in a straight line, and neither should you.  And sometimes what you need and are looking for is right in front of you.  You just have to be present enough to read the signs and invite it in.

Sometimes the most magical experiences happen for me in the space in between here and there.  Gifting me manifestation and insight and peace.  A deep sense of peace that otherwise would not be the norm for my mind that sits, perched, anxiously awaiting its next move.  But, if we really let go isn’t that the most deep true thing there is?  A sense of peace with it all?

Not knowing or needing to know, the why, the how, the where, we’re going or have come from…  Just serenity in the fact that we’re here, having this wondrous experience.  That to me is worth more than any next plan I could be making.

PEACE.  It’s what we are, were, and always have been.  And it’s here, within you, to tap into any time you choose.

It’s waiting, you are waiting.
