While I waited, bleary eyed and cranky, I proceeded to do what I always do while the coffee brews: I took the clean dishes out of the drainer, one at a time and put them away.
On this particular morning, I experienced something that I had never consciously observed before: In the sixty seconds that it took me to stack the last of the pots and pans, the cobwebs in my head had cleared and my mood was better. A lot better. The fog that I was carrying – and my spirits had lifted.
What is this. I haven’t even had my cup of coffee!
There it was. A spacious infusion resulting from a housekeeping ritual that I’ve repeated every day for most of my adult life; an experience realized and harnessed by simply being aware…
I wanted to write a book that cuts through the noise; one that could charm the part of the mind that is spinning out of control somewhere in “overwhelm La-La land”; a book that creates the tiniest peephole of quiet, yummy spaciousness that not only expands with our awareness, but can be felt at the deepest level; a book that delivers a palpable experience of spaciousness in one minute flat.
[The new] Your Spacious Self is that book.
Whether you are a super-organized neatnik, a hopeless clutterbug, a non-stop multitasker, a cautious beginner, an experienced professional, or a curious bystander – welcome, this book is for you.
