There are days when I am filled with just the right amount of sugar, flour, butter, yeast, eggs, vanilla and salt that even when I am thrown into a vat of oil I simply become a tasty high calorie treat. I’ve been shaped and molded to just the right configuration to produce optimal handling and consumption. However, I am soon so filled with my own yummy goodness that I crash and burn without even the slightest trace of all of that potential.
Other days, I’ve got nothing. I feel invisible and am sure that I matter little in the greater scheme of things. Everyone and everything around me is exponentially of greater significance; I’m just an afterthought. Yet these are the times when the universe rushes in and fills the erstwhile void that is me with infinite quantities of love, joy and peace. Less IS more.
“We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole that makes the wagon move.” ~ Lao-tzu
