Maslow’s Heaven…

“Heaven, so to speak, lies waiting for us through life, ready to step into for a time and to enjoy before we have to come back to our ordinary life of striving. And once we have been in it, we can remember it forever, and feed ourselves on this memory and be sustained in time of stress.” Abraham Maslow

Depending on the richness of your imagination, a sweet moment or memory can be felt again. Say “pecan” and I smell one, recalling it in my mind and those first moments life tumbled pecans my way, down hills and under trees towering tall with sun spilling past the leaves green, alive with birdsong. Then, my body was so new, still so unspent and that energy hums under the surface when I remember deeply, recalling to my now what was and is still so very alive.

Sit back, right now, where you are and find that bit of heaven within.
