Timeless As Bird’s Wings
“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralysed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.”― Jelaluddin Rumi , The Essential Rumi
I forgot the charger for my watch this weekend on a mini-escape up north.
My “smart” watch that tracks time, my steps, progress to goal.
Entering timelessness for two days.
No place to be at a certain time.
No tracking of steps or progress.
Suspended and steeped in now-ness.
Lose track of time now and then.
Enter simple moments.
Open to beauty that is all around.
Nothing to track but the present.
Contracting and expanding.
“The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.”― Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
