The Space Between
The space between leaving and what is yet to come. The space of becoming, acknowledgement, and knowingness. The space between the inhale where anything can happen and just before the exhale where life is complete.
All of this invites a big, deep, undulating pause. It’s not so much about the leaving and the arriving as it is about the space between. The place we can get caught in fear and trepidation, uncertainty and anxiety or deep bull shitting denial. A place that speaks like no other of the void. A space that yearns for growth but may be too full of fear to reach for it. A niche of enlightenment with darkness at the edges.
I just returned from 5 days in one of my most sacred spaces in this Universe called Santa Fe. I, at this very moment, am inhabiting the very surreal, ungrounded slightly askew space between. In years past, I would be concerned for my future. The trip, so incredibly enchanting and delightful, has stirred up my longing for what’s next. What will I create, where will I go with it, how I can be more “me” in the process? All those things that used to scare the light out of me and now, without me even being aware of it has softened into a comfort of unknowing.
I have ridden this horse enough to know that all will be revealed in its own languid time. Without force or effort. Without worry or stress. I have realized that what is leaving is leaving and what is to come will find its way to my door. People, places, things, and time have always been and will always be as temporary as a firefly on a warm summer’s night.
I bow to the space between the word and the world. The place where magic can happen with a flick of fate and where, in the end, we will always find our way home.
