“We’re so engaged in doing things
to achieve purposes of outer value
that we forget the inner value,
the rapture that is associated with being alive,
is what it is all about."
— Joseph Campbell
I have finally learned how to “have it all." I mean fulfillment. I have learned to become a taker. Now, I take moments whenever I can. They can be very short in terms of time, such as being at a traffic light, and yet I can use that much time to connect and pay attention and enjoy the moment without any thought of the agenda or what is coming next.
Recently, I was watching people move around me and absorbing the sunlight and heat and breeze and the lack of need of anything or anyone. I thought this is bliss! And it is especially good to take these moments or spaces and embrace them and float with them as if I am floating downstream on a calm raft. There is plenty all about me and I’m aware of no lack, no worries, no concerns, no agenda, no duties. What a glorious space.
