I received an email with the link to an old man singing in a city street. He was singing one of the inspirational songs of our times - “You raise me up”. I was greatly moved by the song and his glorious mature voice.
But what moved me more – to tears in fact – was the spellbound expressions on the faces of some of the shoppers. I saw people entranced by what they were hearing, seeing and feeling. For those few minutes time for them had stopped. The strains and stresses of their day swept away, their minds transported to all that was good in their lives, their feelings and their hearts .
When an experience touches your heart, everything in your world stands still. Save for the feeling that you are in a state of being rather than doing, enjoying the person you love to be, feeling the way you want to feel, knowing that all you want is for this moment to go on and on.
Of course it cannot go on. The experience will end and your life will move on. But the memory will last, a ripple of peace that will flow on through to everything else in your day and your week.
These are the moments for which you were born and from which you truly grow, flourish and blossom into the person of worth you know yourself to be.
Let time stop for you momentarily right now while you click this link and absorb the experience so beautifully created by this wonderful man.
