today as I am driving to see a friend, I started to sing in the car which can be a little awkward when you stop at a stoplight and people look in your direction. But no one could hear me so I was singing at the top of my lungs when something beautiful hit me right square in the heart and connected my brain.
All I knew is that I was perfectly normal with my everyday concerns and the next thing I know, my heart is opening up as tears roll down my cheek and joy swells throughout my whole body. Next, my brain was somewhere in between space and where I was sitting at the light. (stop light)
The thought that went through my brain was a child holding their breath until they turn blue. I don't know about you but I have known at least one child in my life who did that which is an odd event.
Next, was my daughter playing the piano as I walked through the house listening to her emotions as her fingers struck the keys. But it is not the force of hitting the keys that betray her but rather it is the vibration of the notes that hang in the air that blend to create the sound.
What I realized was that love is like the notes in the air which are all around us in everything, every being, even in what we don't see but we like the child are holding the breath until our bodies turn blue. We hold it until we are starved and deprived of the oxygen that carries life through us. So I guess the question is....Are we really living when we are in that state?
The light did turn green and as I drove on, I started to assess my own life understanding that love was only a breath away.
