slowly and purposefully

It was 5:00 pm.  The house was beginning to darken as the evening approached.  My kitchen candle flickered and soft background music played.  There were no children in sight--just me and the flicker of the candle.  I took my time cutting and slicing, enjoying the process.

 I purposefully kneaded and pinched edges.  And there it was: the moment.  Right in front of me.  Life stood still for a few long seconds where I could see and feel the present perfectly.  I could feel the future perfectly.

Life is perfect in this moment.


Despite every thought and worry and doubt and guilt and hopes and dreams I had lived that day, I had arrived at this moment.  The stillness and clarity removed everything else my heart could hold.

This incredible talk brought even more stillness this weekend.  Hope you enjoy.
