The Space Between

“It has been said that it’s the space between the bars that holds the tiger. And it’s the silence between the notes that makes the music. It is out of the silence, or “the gap,” or that space between our thoughts, that everything is created-including our own bliss.” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

I am trying to be aware of the space between my feelings of loss and guilt because there is space. These feelings are not constant, but feel more like miscued beats of the same tune.  Some are louder and more forceful than others. The emotion causes me to tear up.  At times the feeling is softer and more subtle.  It is more of a gentle breeze, but it still creates a slight sting of sadness.

The space between is where the healing occurs and where the spiritual growth resides.  My awareness must remain with the spaces, but it is easy to lose focus and let the lines blur into one another.  The memory of her laugh and even just her voice stay clear in my mind as I try to move forward through this grieving process.  I feel that I am grieving for more than the loss of a friend but the loss of our past.

It is in the wisdom of silence that I feel I will find my peace and this dance with grief will come to a pause.  The echoing music plays deeply inside of me and create a symphony all for me to listen and find freedom.
