I love this article and would like to keep it here as a reminder – to re-read it from time to time, and to resist getting caught up in busyness and the perception that time is compressing and running out. Somewhere, sometime, there is always enough time.

“The one who is not busy lives in the space between every breath, in the space between each thought. In the space between the end of one action and the beginning of the next, we can merge into the source of all action: the still point between the turning worlds. Known in Sanskrit as the madly, the “center point” or the “gap,” this doorway into spaciousness arises in every moment. We just don’t normally notice it. “Human beings experience thousands of fleeting samadhis every day,” says a sage in the ancient text Tripura Rahasya. “But we pass them by, rushing forward to the next moment.”
