”What happens if I let my heart open NOW?”..What happens if I stop doing and just pause?”….. Such a pause constitutes a form of prayer–a union with the Oneness of Being….Much as a surfer continuously falls through the wave that rises up beneath her, you ground in the still point, falling continuously through the present, as it moves through you…Rather than speak of a willingness to give yourself up to the wave of the present, we might speak of LOVE: a love for the stirrings of the present that awakens your whole Being; a LOVE for the dance of the present that transforms everything; a love for the stillness of the present which, like the depths of the sea, silently receives the message of each ripple on its face, and of every living being that moves within it; and a LOVE for the abandon that enables you to give yourself up to the wild peace of the world as it endlessly runs its course.” ~Philip Shepherd in book New Self New World pp 200-202
