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.
