The roots of deep delight: a practice

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle
— Paulo Coelho

Every night as the sun sinks below the horizon out of sight, the cicadas praise in chorus, whilst on the periphery life rumbles past in all its rushing normality.

In this moment, that I stop and pay attention to the seeming end of yet another day, I create a sacred space in time, filled with wonder, filled with the essence of holy. 

This is my practice — everyday.

I stop and sink deeply into the now with my eyes and heart open. I allow its beauty, its realness, its light, its newness to infiltrate my bones and root me in the present moment.

In this place, boredom does not exist.

In this place, miracles unfold moment by moment.

In this place, I am centred whilst everything is changing.

In this place, life is lived serene in quiet rapture, connected to the earth and to the silent spirit that permeates everything.

The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention.
— Julia Cameron

You can live life from this place too. Stop. Breathe in deeply. Look at whatever is in front of you with the eyes of a child. Exhale gratitude.

With love and courage,
