Time spins and swirls: it doesn’t exist.
The great miracle is that we don’t lose the ones we love.
The ones we love stay with us. They shape us; they live and breathe inside our bones.
Today, I was missing someone. I sat down to meditate. I kept my eyes open and softly gazed at the wooden floor.
The patterns in the wood begin to spin and swirl. The light coming in from the window did a pretty, pretty dance.
For a few minutes, a few thoughts held on…
and…then…they were gone.
I was me. Just me again. Just me, with you. Us. The infinite Universe. A small being, and also everything.
You were there. The one I was missing. You were there.
The meditation bell rang, we did our bows, and then I put on my shoes. I entered the day.
