You may be surprised to find out that you have a lot of personal power hidden in the cracks, left unused in the spaces between things. In fact, all power resides in the space separating thought, and emotion, and in the gap between emotion and action.
For example, music isn’t in the notes you hear, but in the space between the notes. The difference between a clod and a genius on the piano is the difference in their ability to manipulate the subtle spaces between the tones.
A six year old kid plays the piano in a steady monotone—there is no rhythm and the notes come at expected intervals. She could be playing Chopin but you wouldn’t know it. The maestro at 60 years old creates art in the silence. There is a syncopation to her playing, tones are coming in and out of existence, she depresses the pedals at just the right time, creates longing in the dramatic pauses, and then fulfills you with rushes of harmony.
