Trust The Empty Spaces

Trust the empty spaces.

Loneliness.
Boredom.
Pain.
Disillusionment.
Disappointment.
Death.
Divorce.
Misunderstandings.
A lack of love.
Feeling cut off.
Writer’s block.
Uncreative days.

trust the empty spaces

Space.
Empty spaces.

Tempting to fill them with:
Meaningless conversations.
Endless internet hours.
Longer hours at work.
Drowning it in alchohol.
Retail therapy.
Hard to trust the empty spaces.
Difficult to believe.
That they’re there for a purpose.

Empty spaces.
We need them.
To find our deepest desires.
To discover our hidden strength.
To realize our own beauty.
To rekindle our creativity.
To allow for grace.
To be.
To create.
Trust the empty spaces.

“And then I have a secret. Did you know what will happen if you eliminate the empty spaces from the universe, eliminate the empty spaces in all the atoms? The universe will become as big as my fist…Similarly, we have a lot of empty spaces in our lives. I call them interstices..I work in empty spaces” ~ Umberto Eco

    I badly needed this to read Corinne. After completing the last post for Festival of Words, I have been spending hours together surfing news channels, internet etc wastefully these days with no apparent goal. But after reading this post, I think I am experiencing “empty space”. However my mind wonders will I be able to come out of it? How do I help myself? Or just ‘let it go’…. like the ‘Frozen’ way?
