The Invention of Passing Time
We can’t always escape to somewhere, step away physically from the noise and confusion and suffering, our own and that of those around us.
BUT – we can always shift how are in relation to whatever is happening.
We need not suffer in feeling disconnection. We are stardust, part of the beautiful oneness of all things.
We are our self and also part of the vast everything. We are truly in this together.
We can pause to notice the beauty of the light on the wall. The softness of a line of shadow. The wonder of the fresh and fading flowers on a single stem.
The miracle of our own breath and the sun at such a precise distance from earth that creates and supports the conditions for life. Mine, yours, all beings.
I invite you into this space of pausing, of awareness. Let’s be in it together shall we? Lay down our arguments large and small. Let’s imagine all those matters as possibly petty in an ultimate sense. We can always pick them up again later.
Maybe we won’t feel so inclined to. Maybe we extend our awareness to the idea of love.
Love for self. For others we love, we like, we fell neutral about, those who’ve harmed us. To all beings seeking happiness as we do.
Breathing together. May be happy, strong, peaceful and live with greater ease.
One breath is all it takes to start.
Please share if you feel so moved.
