“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
~ Viktor E. Frankl
The pause between our reaction to an external stimuli and how we choose to respond is essential in our evolution as human beings. Otherwise we react instinctively like animals.
I’m not going to go into a commentary on the twitter zoo that we appear to be living in, but would like to reflect on growing this sense of spaciousness in our lives.
Space allows us to be open to choose our response
Gives the time for deep full breaths with long exhales.
There is more here than clearing the mind
Being present to our inner state
Reduces clutter and brings clarity.
Space allows for expansion
Learning to be observers without judgment.
In this space our life energy flows through our being
Mind, body and spirit connect
Drawn to the light of freedom
