Breathing in, I experience openness in me.
Breathing out, I smile to the openness in me.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Open(ness) was one of my possible Words for the Year. But ANSWER won the day as I felt it held all the other possible Words together.
As I gaze upon a favourite crystal on my altar - a rutilated quartz - seeing the clear and the obscure, the chips and imperfections, I ponder to what I am truly open ... all the good, the bad, and the indifferent... the hours, days and weeks to come...
And I answer with this phrase tapping at my heart...
For essentially this is all there is.
