Two Beats Longer – If we amplified our senses just a little bit more, what impact would it have on our lives and relationships? We should forget where we’re supposed to be and what we’re supposed to be doing for now. We should instead hold onto this moment for just two more beats. Be careful not to breathe too quickly. Two more beats of air should be taken in. Make sure you don’t scan the room. Observe the shadows and corners of the room for two beats longer. Make sure you look at her more than once. Take two more beats to look into her eyes.
Eat slowly the next time, savor each bite, and let the flavors linger for two beats longer. Send a heartfelt message rather than a heartless note. Take a moment to read it again and feel how painful it may be. When juggling everything on your way out the door, don’t give a perfunctory kiss goodbye. Hold the moment fiercely for two more beats after the kiss, making it firm, solid, and true.
Our lives are lived in the extra beats we hold as time unfolds. In the long run, two beats will become four, four beats will become eight, and eventually, we will be able to master the art of living, of feeling who we are and where we are on our journey to greatness, of creating real moments, of living in the infinite and divine freedom of now as joyful masters.
