* What are you waiting for?

waiting

When you pause, is it something that is imposed or are you drawn to it?
Are you alert and waiting for something to happen?
Is there an expected outcome?
Are you pausing in order to take a break from thoughts that stimulate or frustrate?
Or do you pause as the gateway to stillness and as a way of connecting to your inner world?

When we are wrapped up with expectations of others or from ourselves, we lose touch with the sacredness of the simple pause.

There is nothing to wait for.

  1. β€œPause as the gateway to stillness” β€” always my intention, sometimes, I fall short. πŸ™‚
    Always I begin again to breathe into the silence between each moment.
    I too like Hariod’s β€˜pause clause’! πŸ™‚

  2. Val, prior to opening your posts, I find my pulse slow with an expectation of peace and of finding my center. This post had that impact as well.

    Your blog reminds me of this quote by James Carroll:

    β€œThere are times when we stop, we sit still. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.” (James Carroll)
