Today, I awoke with thunder and lightning rolling overhead. My heart raced from being startled awake. The thunder lasted ten minutes and then faded off into the distance. A quiet set in around me.
Do you ever wish you could stop time? Just for a moment? And in that moment let time wash over you and experience everything in a deeper sense. Lately, when I find myself stressing out, I breathe deeply and settle into myself and wait. I am surrounded by a sense of wellness, and then my heart is calm again.
The idea of being outside of time is comforting to me. In a fast-paced world, where we hardly have a moment to breath, it is nice to have a place to linger, where all things stop moving around us.
I say to myself, “It’s time to get off the train.” In that space between times, I wander in fields knee-high with buttercups and trail my hands in the tall grass. Eventually, the train whistle blows, telling me it is time to leave. That moment in the in-between is bittersweet, but I know I will come back to this place of peace . . . where all things stand still and I feel the grace.
