Between

Come with me to a special place. It is found between your in breath and out breath…take a moment to arrive and then for just a second or two, or three…have a seat. It is one of my favorite places to visit. Yet many people never stop to enjoy it. Always pushing ahead and ignoring the space it holds. I find it to be a somewhat magical place where there is no judgement or ridicule. One will not find obligations or regrets nearby. Just simply being. After you become comfortable here…move along. Next is the place between your out breath and in breath. Again, arrive and take notice. As I wander from the inhale to exhale and back again my “should haves” and “could haves” no longer hang around my neck and simply slip away. The list for tomorrow is obscured from my sight and today becomes clearly present.  So here I simply sit…between. The secret wisdoms whispered around me. I beckon them, catching some here and there…”knowings” I call them. Life’s secrets that we all have been told yet have forgotten along the way. I find them here in the between…a truly special place.
