The Space Between

There are many ways of seeing the world, I want you to know that it is possible to see it through new eyes. It is possible to suddenly and inexplicably come upon a creative solution that had been there all along, right under your nose.  I want you to know that the best comfort is the one you learn to provide for yourself. That everything you will ever need already lies within you. I want you to know that all of life exists at the intersection of duality. In Chinese Medicine we call this yin and yang. Healing occurs when this duality is felt and embodied. I want you to know that it is the paradoxical nature of living that gives life any meaning at all. It is about exploring where the paradoxes of life occur and more importantly, it is about exploring the space between them.  

I want you to know that it is space that transforms. It is space that is needed in our lives and in our work. It is space that allows us a moment to notice, to reflect, to change. It is space that is lacking from our grief process. It is space that is lacking from our experience of learning how to mother our children and more importantly, how to mother ourselves. 

There is a space between knowing when to ask and then knowing when to let go of the question. There is a space between knowing when the call of a bird is a sign--an omen foretelling a future of hope untold--and knowing that the call of a bird is just that, meaningless and mundane. There is a great joy and devastation that occurs in holding it ALL in a single moment.  It is the space between that gives us any sense of what matters at all.

Healing is an art. Healing is bound in love. Healing involves calling on the creative capacity of your inner being. By creating space in your life for healing and creativity, you spark the catalyst that is necessary for deep rooted change to occur.

It's all happening now, if you allow it.
