The solar eclipse was a unique moment, when time seemed to stand still. Where light and shadow switched places in a way, or played trickster to the "norm." We were brought into the living moment dramatically, reminded we cannot take for granted that which is expected. And, is life ever only what we expect? It doesn't have to be.
We can pause to see the capacity for each moment to be unique, alive and different. What are we missing when we live otherwise? Who knows what new things and possibilities are waiting to be discovered if only we pause, if we listen, if we don't assume, if we bring ourselves fresh and clean into each moment.
The eclipse brought people into stillness and awareness on that August day, in those moments, in the pause so many of us took all around the country. We need more of it! Nature spoke so powerfully, drawing us into inner stillness in that August moment!
