It’s late afternoon … I sense an awareness of … what?
I turn my head to the left and listen but I hear nothing.
Standing still at the kitchen counter I wait expectantly, but I don’t know what I’m waiting for.
Evening comes and the sense of awareness continues. Acutely. It’s as if I am aware of every moment as it goes by. My perception is heightened.
I sense God’s presence. Calmness surrounds me — peace enters my heart.
As I prepare dinner, I’m aware of every thing that happens — as if each moment is THE moment in my life. There’s a stillness to my being.
The stillness continues all through the evening and into the night.
The next morning I wake up with the continued sense of awareness.
As the day wears on, slowly, imperceptibly, it’s gone.
And I wonder … how life would be different living in a state of heightened awareness, calmness and peace – living with the presence of God in my heart.
