Mind the gap

I saw a sign yesterday near an elevator that said “Mind the gap”.

We usually focus on what is before and after the gap. So much that we do not even notice the gap.

But the gap is so significant. Especially in the busy lives that we run. The gap between our thoughts. The gap between two activities. The gap between our in-breath and out-breath.

Be aware of the gap. It helps loosen the hold our busy life has over us. It helps us connect to who we are.

Mind the gap!
