July 27--Open Soul

The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience. 
--Emily Dickinson

    I have had the occasional "ecstatic experience," and they have always come when I was really paying attention, present in the moment, very aware of myself and my surroundings. Instead of moving through life on autopilot (very easy to do), we stop, breathe and become aware. A mountaintop is not required. As Ms. Dickinson states, just keep the soul open.
