365 Pause Practices – Day 146
a life of self-absorption
an extraordinary ordinary life
~ ~ ~
If you are still reading this, congratulations, as it means you are willing to be more than this self-focused me-character we all default to! Yay!!! We can only do this together with the help of Extraordinary Wisdom and Love, which any one of us can access in a pause; and with the help of one another ~ through encouraging each other and LIVING LOVE ~ no special circumstances required!
Delivering JOY to One Another is Simple ~ Find Your Way
“Our driver can’t access your house to leave your package,” I hear on a voicemail. Hmm, that’s not usually an issue. After a customer representative chat, the driver pulls up our driveway, flings open her car door, and flies out huffing and puffing, “This ridiculous! I’ve been driving around for 30 minutes and I’ve got 40 packages to deliver.” I stand on the front porch quietly. She hurriedly opens her car trunk full of packages and begins shuffling through them searching for our medium box. I can clearly see that this woman is working hard and having one of those moments or days that we all experience, right? In my quiet, I am guided to go grab a Pause book and Practice cards to share. She hands me the box and dashes to her car as I say, “Oh, here, this is for you, reaching out to her with Pause materials.” A big smile comes over her face as she reads the book cover and looks up at me. “You wrote this?” she asks. “I did and now I run this organization.” “Thank you!” she shouts out joyously and goes on her way hopefully to have a better day and extend the JOY we gave to one another. Our hearts and minds were both lifted in that one ordinary moment, and I was energized to write this post which I was not before our encounter. Way to go……….
We can attempt to compartmentalize LOVE into our special times, special groupings, special relationships, special places, and special desires OR we can let This LOVE be expressed through us day in and day out in the midst of the mundane. It is in the ordinariness of life that Extraordinary LOVE is available to us in ways seen and unseen.
