The Gap is Where the Treasure Lives

They say that “where you stumble is where you find your treasure.” 


That’s true. But what’s less talked about is The Gap: the space between where you’re coming from and where you’d like to be next, even if you don’t have a clear picture of that yet. In that space, there’s nothing to hold on to, for you can’t “get to where you’re going” any faster than the pace you’re travelling. 
We are in between.


When we’re in The Gap, our impulses to grasp for an anchor  can come on so strong -we want it to be a particular way, we need to know ourselves a particular way.

And so we can choose: we can follow the impulses to identify with, as, something. Or we can just wait. And breathe through the space, being patient and curious about what is yet to be realized.

Being open to what’s unknown is the first step towards discovering it.


Rather than reacting to our fear or getting frustrated & impatient, being open means that we are a yes to the universe,  a yes to life, and we become receptive to the unexpected discoveries that can now come our way.
