We all have those moments where we do not know where the time went, and the moment in time is over before we know it. We say to ourselves, “I was just talking to Burt, and before I knew it, it was time to go.” No, this is not a post on relativity. Or maybe it is.
I call those gaps in time that seem to go by instantly — The Spaces. What’s so significant about these spaces that I had to create a post dedicated to them? Well, they are little moments of “Letting Go.”
The Spaces — These are moments of being right in the flow of life. These are beautiful moments. Yes! Moments so fleeting, you didn’t even realize they were there until after they were gone.
Next time you realize that you had experienced a gap of The Space. Do not try to figure out where the time went. Just close your eyes and remember that space. Recreate that space again in your consciousness. You inherently know that it is still there. It is always there. It is your secret place of Space of Forgiveness (letting go).
Every point in the day that I can experience a little bit of Forgiveness (letting go), I do. The Spaces are one of those moments that I can experience a bit of serene peace. Have a little bit of acceptance of the way things are. I love to take that much needed break from the stimuli that pulls me back into the illusion of all of my perceptions of what things mean.
Very often we feel that we need to take a vacation to get a break in our lives. Vacations surely have there place. I believe in taking vacations, and taking them quite often, if possible. A vacation is just a space away!
How to Create The Spaces in Your Day
It is quite simple to create The Spaces in your day. Close your eyes. Let your thoughts run free. Notice when there are short gaps of no thought. Those are the spaces. Literally 3 minutes with just a couple thought gaps in them will give you such a serene sense of peace that you may not have had in a while.
Whether you notice The Spaces that occur naturally during the day, or you create The Spaces, you will be the better off for it. You will have taken another step into learning and experiencing The Lost Art of Letting Go — Forgiveness.
Forgiveness: To let go of all perceptions and accept what is in a space of having no desired outcome.
(Forgiveness actually has nothing whatsoever to do with saying that someone hurting you is okay or that what another person did or said was okay, even if you felt that it was wrong. Forgiveness is beyond feeling and judgement. In Forgiveness there is no judgement.)
