The normally constant voice of despair, exhaustion etc is quiet.

...everything seems settled. The normally constant voice of despair, exhaustion etc is quiet. It is no longer driving me. It is as if I can hear more clearly, I can hear the peace. It also affects my vision, not exactly my sight but before me, there is not lots of things to see beyond - there is just an open space. The obstacles in front of me, seem to cloud my vision and tighten my body to see beyond them. And today they are not there.

A calm is with me, a blank page almost. I am not rushing. I do not feel as if I am about see everything collapse because I have just missed doing something vital. I am in no hurry to rush off and fill the open space either. I am enjoying the space, the clarity and I release the fear that it will not last and that my life, my reality, will in a short time revert to its old familiar frantic struggle! And I remain open to the delight of life free from effort, and so it is!!
