Situations have a way of attaching themselves to you.
As with your thoughts and emotions
Different people and things
Like leeches, they suck you dry and drain you of all your energy.
Draining you of your emotional and mental fortitude.
When you’re smothered like that, you kick into survival mode
You can't breathe,
Simply trying to manage the situation or just get through the day
But in between whatever is going on and you, is space
The more attached or engrossed you are in something, the less the space
The less the space, the less the opportunity or potential there is for anything else to manifest
The thing is then, to be able to find that sacred space
The time that will allow you to detach, to contemplate, to reconnect
To create a kind of separation that allows you to look at things more clearly and objectively
To breathe again.
This space is sacred because it’s this that essentially allows you to maintain some sanctity
To commune with the essence of who you are and what you’re about
Keeping you grounded and the whole of creation in perspective
It’s very easy to lose that when you find yourself simply gasping for air
Moment by moment and day by day, just holding on
But the thing you need to realise about space is, no one is going to give it to you,
Not these days when everyone and everything is continuously competing for your attention
So you have to create it
Make the space by claiming it
Be relentless in it's pursuit
Creating moments or simply a single moment in each day that’s just for you
No phones or laptops
Just a moment of solitude between yourself and your maker
Keeping things in their proper perspective and keeping you equipped well enough to handle everything the world has to throw at you
