THE POWERFUL PAUSE from UBA Board member, Valerie McCloud

One of my favorite quotes is, “It’s the silence between the notes that makes the music.”  Without that pause, we’d just have one long, unending note. Sometimes, that’s what life can feel like. Pausing is not only powerful; but necessary. In that moment of stillness, we can create enough space to truly connect with Divine Spirit; which is always here.  We just haven’t paused long enough to see it and hear the quiet whispers of guidance it provides.  The pause also allows us to connect with our “beingness” and that of others. We can take nature’s example with its changing seasons. We get to enjoy nature’s most beautiful and vibrant display in spring, after the winter’s rest. Use the powerful pause in your own life to create your own life’s musical masterpiece.
