When the call from within comes, when the heart says, “Be fulfilled,” we ignore it. We think it is not significant enough, or we say, “I don’t have time for this stuff.”
We think that, as this breath has been coming and going, it will continue to come and go, and that there will be no end to it. Excuse me, there is. And the humility that it evokes is so amazing. It’s not like a hammer falling down. It’s a fine line. One day, I have to go. And when that becomes certain, the value of this time, this life, this breath becomes clear.
