A Glimpse, A Gaze
“Only in the pauses between things, in the brief contemplative spaces of just being, can we catch a glimpse of love itself.”― Gerald G. May, The Awakened Heart: Opening Yourself to the Love You Need
Accept and open the gift of spring.
Of new life, of bloom, of colors on fire.
Ground softening, brown to green.
The earth coming alive, awakening to joy of new beginnings.
Today is it, not someday when.
Now is the time.
Pause, suspend, enter the fullness of this moment.
Alongside circumstances, struggles, gratitude and joy exist to complete the whole picture, not replace or remove.
The mix of it all, noticing the good twice as much as the hard.
Glimpses, signs, wonders, awe abound to anchor and root in.
Notice the flowers rather than the weeds.
Forefronts and backdrops.
Hone your senses to choose well.
Beauty in the pause.
Joy awaiting your arrival.
“Joy is the reaction one has to the full appreciation of Being. It is one’s response to finding one’s rightful, rooted place in life, and it can happen only when one knows through and through that absolutely nothing is being denied or otherwise shut out of awareness.”― Gerald G. May, Will and Spirit
