The Space Between

cohdranknabstrctclr1[1]The Space Between.  I have come to notice that there is a space that exists between everything – between thoughts; between thought and action; between perception and interpretation; between stimulus and response; between observation and reaction.

And in that space between everything, life expands and is infinite.

In that space, I realized that I can choose how to perceive, how to interpret, how to act, how to respond.  I can choose how I want to see and interpret an event or issue and how to respond to it.  There is an endless, boundless space wherein I can choose from among never-ending possibilities.

Globes_(2)[1]In that space, life is – it breathes and pulses and radiates.  It expands.  It is infinite.

Within that space, I am not locked in to any one perception or interpretation or response.  I can choose.  No matter what happens – whether someone cut me off in traffic, or insulted me, or dismissed my feelings, or was rude, or even was stunningly brilliant – there is a space in which I have a say.  I can be hurt, angry, offended, insulted, enraged, envious – or I can be calm, understanding, compassionate, loving.

I can choose to retaliate, get back at them, force an issue or behavior or opinion – or I can let it go, show kindness, be at peace, come from a place of love.  I can select what I want.  That space allows me to choose not just how I respond, but how I perceive and interpret it as well.

DSCN7472[1]In this space, I can even opt from which part of me I perceive and respond – from my ego, my personality, my filtered perceptions, or from a deeper, loving, expansive core.  I can determine who and how I want to be in this world, and from which part of myself I see and relate to the world around me.

And I have discovered that I can be in that space whenever I want – that space is available all the time.  So in each moment, there is a space wherein the entire world, all of life, is expansive and endless, and in which I can be.  And in which I can make a choice.

Just as solid objects in the physical world are really made up of atoms which are comprised mostly of space, so too the world we perceive is actually manifested from and made mostly from the space between.

So I invite all of you to slow down, take a moment, and become aware of that never-ending space.  Notice how it expands.  Feel the power, the presence of all life, of Beingness itself.  Allow yourself to flow and expand into it, merging with a boundless sense of Love and openness.  A place from which you can determine how to see and be in the world.

file4341336852705[2]For me, this is where I touch God – the space between.  It’s in every thought, every feeling, and every act – but the source and power and determination come from the space between.  That is the source of all Life, the wellspring from which all Beingness is.

And then from that space, you are free to choose your world.  So don’t simply respond to any outside event or stimulus as usual – slip into the space between event and reaction, and really make a choice as to how you want to view things, and who and how you want to be.

The space between… touching on endless possibilities, infinite Beingness.  The option is all yours, and it always has been.
