We’re so active in our minds with repetitive ego (past and future) thoughts, it can be difficult to create space for stillness. When we let go of those thoughts, and open up a space- that is merging your being with the present moment. Creating space, allows room to give our full attention to be.

Rushing from activity to activity, not giving our full attention to anything may cause us to skip over things that are important.

“Most people’s lives are cluttered up with things: material things, things to do, things to think about.”

If you’re not fully there and you’re stuck in your thoughts – you won’t be able to accurately respond to the needs of the situation at the present moment.

We limit the quality of time we give things. Space is extremely important to connect to what is in front of you at the current moment and give it the appropriate attention necessary for growth. How often do we allow ourselves space? The space to just be, breathe, forgive, laugh, have fun – or whatever it might be. Let go of any thoughts that aren’t serving you. Moods, discomfort, feelings, gratitude, etc. are temporary and “This, too, will pass.” There is nothing you need to do, just experience these moments and free yourself to be with it.

“You are never more essentially, more deeply, yourself than when you are still. When you are still, you are who you were before you temporarily assumed this physical and mental form called a person. You are also who you will be when the form dissolves. When you are still, you are who you are beyond your temporal existence: consciousness—unconditioned, formless, eternal.”

Wanting things to happen instantly and not allowing the space for things to grow and evolve naturally is limiting.

“Once you see and accept the transience of all things and the inevitability of change, you can enjoy the pleasures of the world while they last without fear of loss or anxiety about the future. When you are detached, you gain a higher vantage point from which to view the events in your life instead of being trapped inside them.”

There is nothing you need to do. Allow yourself the space to be.
