Holy Fraction

How miraculous is every moment?

I came across this short tale in 'The Song of the Bird' by Anthony De Mello:

Buddha was once asked, "What makes a person holy?" He replied, "Every hour is divided into a certain number of seconds and every second into a certain number of fractions. Anyone who is able to be totally present in each fraction of a second is holy."

Every moment acts as a reminder that life is this magnificent thing, this amazing opportunity we have to love and learn.

I keep on having reality checks that leave me in a state of awe.

I become aware of every movement behind every movement - the stillness behind every moment.
