There are moments in life that take our breath away. These moments alert us to the mystery and wonder of life, leaving us with a deep sense of awe. We also have moments in life that are jolting or shocking. They too take our breath away, and remind us of the fragility of life. They whisper to us that life’s moments are limited, and our life and our time together is a gift to savor.
Such moments may be experienced as a “collision with the infinite.” Moments where our conscious mind recognizes we are intertwined with the infinite, each of us unique, each of us meant to be, and each belonging to something larger than our self. Together we create the whole, a humble yet powerful awareness.
Reflecting on these moments can awaken us; perhaps call us to make a shift in our lives. We may find ourselves drawn in directions we have in the past neglected or taken for granted. Suddenly wanting to connect to what nourishes us, we bring the focus of our lives into the present moment. Here we realize just how much of our time has been spent wandering in and out of a trance. Our thoughts wandering through our past and future, tirlessly trying to relive, change and conquer our past, as well as dreaming, designing or carefully orchestrating our future.
The Universe will knock upon your door and offer you the breath of no regret. Are you listening?
When we answer the knock we are gifted with the opportunity to experience “now,” the moment when our life is real and unfolding moment by moment. Here, now, we find ourselves deliciously present and alive.
If you listen closely, the universe will knock upon your door and offer you the breath of no regret, a chance to embody life, your life, and live it with intention. Look within, find and live your truth, live your life fully. And when the moment comes for you to breathe your last breath, may it be the breath of no regrets.
