The Other Side of the Glass

Do you know those windows they build into bathrooms? The ones that are frosted so you can’t see through them?

You may hear laughter, excitement, or maybe even some really scary stuff on the other side, but you can’t see any of it. You can’t reach out to touch, taste it or make it a part of your life. It frustrates you, because you know on the other side of that hazy glass are all your hopes and dreams.

It must be your fault! You must lack desire or intelligence. You are too young or been told you are too old. You look in the mirror and you don’t like the nose, the hair, the smile………… So you decide you must change. You embark on a process to recreate, to reinvent. You work hard; always looking to the right and left to make sure you are keeping up with everyone else and slowly you feel yourself falling behind.

Love What Is, -  a quote from Dorothy Hunt. Sit up taller and embrace that person whose skin you are inside right now. They may be tired or frustrated, dejected or maybe just really frazzled about the edges.

“Be still and know that I am God.” Fold your busy hands on your lap, close your eyes, even if it’s just for a moment, and breathe. Forget work, family, friends and everything else that chases you and simply sit in the presence of  God.
