    i am a guest. in slicing the orange melon with green skin, in the light from the window, in the gray morning light on the dirty sink water--i am a guest. i am aware. i am here, noticing all that my hands do, that my body feels, that my emotions experience. i am here in the quiet out of which birds chirp, or a steady rain gently rises louder. i am always a guest. in the midst of a room, in the sound of the refrigerator hum suddenly dying, in the quiet, in the now.

    why is this peace? it seems that the world is always changing. but, inside my body, behind my thoughts, i stay the same. only if my thoughts or feelings grow loud enough to fill that space do i disappear completely. who am i?

    awareness.

    listen.
    in the space between sounds,
    between two trees,
    between two thoughts--
    the peace of God.

    Hi Stopmotion,

    This is delightful. I have read and re-read it many times. Sitting and contemplating it for the last several days, the following words strongly emerged from the Silence as well... (for me)...

    And in that peace.... I transform from guest to son, daughter .... I belong. In that belonging, I am aware..... of..... love..... the essence of God, holding the love of God...

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful insight Stopmotion and the personal realization it brings for me...

    Thank you stopmotion,its all in those lines, no more no less.

    Saw this this morning whilst walking.....

    A reed bent by the winds breath

    Strokes a perfect arc on the waters skin.
