It’s closer than you think.


I have committed to taking 2-5 second pauses repeatedly throughout my days lately.

My intention is to drop all thoughts and simply feel what’s left, what still exists when I let thoughts go.

Dropping all thoughts is not always easy, but I’m getting better at it. It helps that it is a short commitment, but I’m seeing the power in the repetition.

So tonight, just before I began my evening neb, I paused.
In this pause I was blessed with feeling Grace.
The Grace that is always here, so close, already inside and wrapped around everything.
The Grace that gets disguised when I try to manage the life that I pile on top of It.
And even that has Grace in it, is Grace.
There is no escape.
And I’m so glad.
