Before I left Canada in January I was gifted a set of the May You Know Joy Meditation cards, created by Adrienne Enns Edgar. I only opened them when I presented my first Write to Know Joy class in March, simply because they were about joy! Well, we’ve been using them as a homework writing prompt ever since!
This month, the card — May You Know Space — really got me thinking about the space in-between so many things.
The space in-between my pauses for breath
The space in-between my thoughts
Today, I took a stroll to the beach and more spaces appeared, in-between the steps that led to the sand, and between the sparkles on the water…
In-between the seagulls and the sand as they soared on the air currents.
In-between the clouds and the clear blue sky.
Then there was the space in-between the waves crashing onto the shoreline and between the beads of foam…
I realised there was space all around me, for at one point I had the whole beach to myself. Why? I’ve no idea because it was a glorious sunny day!
Nature is full of wondrous spaces to explore. Equally wondrous, are the spaces within us.
To know space is to be present in the moment, and to be aware of how I feel. I love my sacred space for it where I am at peace with self, to ponder, explore, expand and create. I love sharing my space too, being in the company of like-minded people feels satisfying, rewarding, enriching.
What does knowing space mean to you?
