The Seeker

In between times …is NOW.

About Now

My life is full of in between times. What I do with the in between times is the most important aspect of my life, for without it, life is meaningless.  The in between is ABOUT NOW.

between

In between reminds me of a good friend that I questioned ” what do you do in between”? That is load full of questions that has so many meanings and can be answered in many ways.  Surely, there is so much I can do in between.  It is mostly waiting  filled with wonders:

  • waiting in line
  • waiting for the next meal
  • waiting for the next vacation
  • waiting for the next pay check
  • waiting for the sun, moon, rain, snow
  • waiting for faith, hope, charity, health, joy
  • waiting for answers to my prayers, signs and miracles

The list is long.  While I wait, so much have happened or not happened, in between.

I just realized that my life is full of miracles from the day of my conception, birth, growing, adding years to my age until the time of my departure on earth is all in between times.  During this time, I experienced plenty and filled with gratitude.

As I defined myself:
Servant of the Lord, first and foremost. Lover of all sentient beings. Maurice and Lucy are my cats. I plant my own garden to decorate my soul, nurtures and keeps me grounded. Hummingbird  connects me to an awesome wonders and makes me feel at home. I am a pilgrim on this earth.

So I created this space to share with you my “In Between Times.” It is a continuous series of:

  • from one moment to the next,
  • from one thought to the next,
  • from one action to the next.

“People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering. ~ St. Augustine of Hippo.”

“Often people demand a great deal from themselves and their lives and are despondent when reality does not measure up. Milton has long been understood as having offered consolation for this affliction, reminding us that we do not always have a say in the role that we play in the world and that sometimes we must learn to see the service we are giving when we are doing nothing but waiting.”

  1. Hi, I have nominated you for Liebster award Knowing you have emerged as a popular and bigger blogger. I really admire your thoughts and could not resist to give awesome blog reference. Entirely your wish to respond on my post.http://soulnspiritblog.com/2014/09/29/wow-here-comes-my-award/

  2. Yes to all of this, Perpetua! That waiting expectantly for something, whatever it is, has caused me many times to put life on hold in some manner and has gotten in the way of appreciating those in between moments that you write about. That truly interferes with the “now”. Thanks for reminding us all of this important insight.

  3. Hello again – I linked you to a post about my “tree” and just realized I didn’t answer your question about the location. Strange to be talking to another Vancouverite – go figure :). Understandably I’m not comfortable giving the location of my house – lets just say it’s very close to Children’s Hospital :)

    • No problem. I understand.

      • That aside – curiosity is alive and well. Two random WordPressers from the Lower Mainland – I wouldn’t doubt we’ve crossed paths :). I work in hospitality. Currently making fabulous parties unfold for a major catering company.Toss me a bone – what do you do?

      • So far, I have touched based with a few Vancouver bloggers and met Joanne from Kitimat. She’s the person of interest on today’s WPC.

        Public servant for the Vancouver School Board, not a teacher, a humble paper pusher. Hospitality and parties is an interesting profession. If we have met, I would be the wallpaper.

        Bone? You are the second person today that mentioned that word. I think that is sign to post about bones. :)

      • VSB “paper pusher” doesn’t sound so awful :) It certainly doesn’t define who you are, anymore than my decades spent making other people feel important. Truth be told – I love my job…

        http://notestoponder.wordpress.com/2013/07/27/it-helps-if-you-love-your-job/

        Write a post about your job – my theory has always been, if you can’t do that – change jobs :)

        I have Cougar bones in my freezer (possibly attached to a head)……

      • Thank you for proving me the links of your candid post. Your theory is univeral and I’ve changed jobs plenty. Love is a given and the deciding factor for meis LIKE and interfers with my personal belief and lifestyle. II have posted quite a few of job related post about the students and the latest job action. And there are plenty to be told still.

        You must have a big freezer to hold this animal bones. Do you hunt by any chance?

  4. This reminds me of the quote that says something like Life is what happens while you’re waiting for life to happen. In between times can be powerful times in our lives if we are listening for God’s voice and hearing Him speak. POWERFUL!

  10. Very wise thoughts! So much of life is made up of those little moments of waiting. It’s definitely best to look at them as opportunities for peaceful reflection, rather than being impatient to move on to something else.
