     Big enough to take it all in to me means, we have the ability and capacity to do this is we remain out of fear, in the present and trust/believe that we can handle it. When we are fully present in the present moment rather than ruminating about the past or worrying about the future, it frees our mind, heart and soul to simply be. This past weekend I participated in a 3 day Compassionate Listening Training with 12 others. We all did our best to be fully present with and for each other. As we listened either in silence or in reflection and present with eye contact and not concerned with what to say in response and with no need to "fix" anything, a magic happened where every single one of us opened more deeply both in what we chose to say to each other and in how we were able to listen deeply. It was beautiful and heart/mind expanding. Realizations of the deep value of simply being present as a gift to one another. <3 Oooh, to commit to see clearly: gosh, I guess the power in seeing how that opens the heart.mind even further and it diminishes worry/fear as thoughts rather than swirling seem to center and settle. Thank you so much for this reading, a perfect reminder. <3
