It’s the sweetest space, the space between.
The space between Friday and Monday. The space between doing this and doing that. The space between what was and what will be. The space between thoughts. The space between break-ups, between breakfast and lunch, between Act 1 and Act 2, between hugs, between songs. It’s all so very sweet. But why?
Well, just before we enter that sweet space, we have gathered all that we need. Breakfast fueled us, the break-up freed us, Act 1 inspired us, the hug reminded us of who we are; we’ve gathered the makings of the current situation to its fullness and then a subtle detachment happens and a magical reorientation begins as the previous moment integrates with the current one. The fullness comes undone and we become it; therein lies the sweetness.
What’s more? It happens in the space between every breath. A fullness, a pause, a softening and opening, an integration, a release to the now (the sweet spot), an exhale and moving forward, breathing forth. It’s a wonderful cycle and the mechanism of life in time/space. Happy meditating!
