    Space and time
    Always searching for both
    Space and time needed
    For emotional and spiritual growth
    Space for the room to explore it all
    Time to recover from an unsuspecting fall

    Needing space
    Needing time
    But neither one is guaranteed
    To give the space and time we need

    Space and time
    Two of life’s constants
    Used to get through most any situation
    Love and understanding
    Healing and relaxation

    We want to believe
    That space and time
    Will clear up issues in our hearts and minds
    But oh how quickly we run out of space
    The issues grow larger, we run out of time
    Deeper we go, falling further behind

    So many questions
    Outnumbering the answers
    We hope, we pray
    We look for some sign
    Will there ever be enough space
    Will there ever be enough time

    BE

    sometimes

    our searching brings us back to square one; and we see realities and inevitabilites in the stark light of day...but time and space is what might be necessary to bring us back-to-face those truths, once again...and provides us with the strength to carry on.
    thank you for your wisdom

    so precious is our space and time
    wallowing in it would be sublime
    as though we had an infinite supply
    of space and time on which to rely

    Space and Time

    Thank you for this Heartbeat

    once

    or twice I needed room for meditation, and if I remember correctly, each time I came back with surprising revelations. I remember asking if I'd taken too much time, demanded too much space. Silence was my answer. Dead. Final.

    Very thought-provoking. S/he who has ears, let them hear.

    Yes, we need space and time sometimes to figure life out, but what happens when we run out of time? Time is not promised. Feeling this flow.
