Spaces in Between
In the past few days I’ve noticed that I’ve had these paradoxical thoughts and sensations like “hurry up and wait” or “everything to do and nothing to do”. It is a fascinating place and calming in some regard. I feel at peace with these sensations and I wonder if it is because I intuitively know that everything will get done exactly how it should when it needs to be done.
I’ve read about the concept of the spaces, or the energy between things…I could find it but then this post wouldn’t get written. Let’s just use the metaphor of the ‘pull’ you feel when a magnet is about to attach it’s opposing charge.
It is a magical and seemingly palpable place between here and there, or the time between now and then….if you stop to notice that space and ponder it, it has a calming and wonder-full feel to it. Even the space between asking/praying for something and getting it has a similar quality…if we relax and ‘soft focus’ on the space we will feel the ‘knowing tug’ that it is all taken care of, in the ways it needs to be, in the time it needs to get done…perhaps the feeling state can be called grace or faith…something to ponder.
I am reminded of the quote I call upon often these days:
All Shall Be Well, and All Shall Be Well, and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well
Julian of Norwich
