Wonderful evening at home with the family; chores, homework, bathtime... all part of the blessing of being! Each moment another opportunity to be in the unitive state and collected; a quality, no matter how fleeting, momentary and impermanent. Slowly it is sinking in: just-is-ness. Why take it personal? Nothing is personal if there is no-person to be attacked. So we continue, moving from one transient moment to the next, "surprised by joy" as C.S. Lewis put it!
