Her blog post about the spaces between really made me think. She talks about meditation, which I desperately would like to tackle but just can't seem to. I've got a meditation idol picked out, a wonderful creature from Pipyr. Sadly I've had it for over a year now, it sits on my kitchen window ledge, waiting, for me to utilize it's energy. And it does have energy, with horse hair additions it really speaks to me. Yet I still don't meditate.
Stefanie talks about the "spaces in between". The small moments between what we want, need and work to make happen are where the little moments in between happen. Where things just happen, where we learn peace, acceptance and grace.
It's hard to let the universe in when you are stuck, working hard, plugging forward. It's incredibly hard to just be, to listen, to be at peace for just a moment. The spaces in between are my goal for this year. I didn't know it when I started the year out, but reading Stephanie's blog post made me realize I need to try and step back, for at least a moment a day and just be. To let the universe in, to learn peace, acceptance and grace. It may be one of the hardest things I do, but the universe is out there, waiting for me, why not let it in? Will I learnt to meditate? Well we shall see, my question at the moment is where do I start?
