It is those quiet, precious moments; the space between spaces,
in those moments of complete stillness and no-thingness,
where we can hear our own breath and the breath of existence,
where our hearts open wide and unconditionally,
to the Grace that waits to bestow itself on us.
Grace wonders upon us when we expect it the least,
it sometimes comes in times of deep sorrow,
other times it arrives in moments of exalted joy,
and it also generously meets us in each moment,
Grace is to be found everywhere within and without,
if only we are open and available to recognize and experience it.
Profound Grace is present in the simple things in life,
the smile we give to a stranger,
the act of kindness to someone who can do nothing for us,
in watching the sun coming up and setting each day,
in watching the stars at night,
in taking time to smell the roses on our way,
in taking time to care for the beautiful planet we live on,
in taking time to see the goodness, greatness and genius within others,
in revering all life and creatures.
Grace is knocking on your door today,
All you need is to take a moment,
To have the intention to be touched by Grace,
To take a deep, slow breath,
To quiet your busy mind,
To rub your hands together vigorously,
To put them on your heart,
To breathe deep into your precious heart,
and to listen...
In that moment between moments,
In the stillness where you can feel your heart beating,
Grace will express itself to you in a unique way,
Grace will show up unexpectedly in the days to come,
In ways you cannot even imagine right now.
For that to happen, you only need to be open and available to its wonder.
