When my husband and I first walked into the house we would eventually buy, we knew immediately that it was our home. We knew that our new home marked the beginning of another era in our lives. I remember walking into it and there seemed to be so much space even though the home was much smaller than the home we were renting. The day we moved into our single-family unit, I immediately thought, “This house is much smaller than our rental home but I don’t care. It’s ours.” We were thrilled!
Something happened to our perception of our spacious house. We began to complain to our family, “This house is too small for all of you to stay with us. How long are you planning to stay? Where will you sleep for three months? This will be tough because we need our space!”
As I now think back on this event, we adjusted to my family living with us for awhile and it did seem that we were out of space. We became obsessed with the people and objects in our home and stopped focusing on the beauty, the power and the stillness of space. Space is vast and filters through this life like the image of a hot apple pie's aroma traveling through the crevices of life. It is so vast that it is difficult for the human mind to comprehend. We can only sense it. But it is always there and no-thing can live without it. Space is silence. Space is peace. Feel and listen to it everywhere your eyes see because it’s visible all the time. That’s God!
Sending positive energy your way, always! Happy Love Thursday!
