Allowing…..

What does it meant to Allow More?

It’s almost the last week of August…there is a palpable shift in the air happening…for some, school starts this week, there will be buses and more traffic soon…and Fall will fall soon…hopefully we will all have a beautiful Late Summer/Indian Summer in the Northeast…and we must A L L O W the flow of Mother Nature to do her thing…what we resist persists…so embrace it all, and allow.

One of my favorite Danna Faulds Poems

ALLOW

There is no controlling life.

Try corralling a lightening bolt, containing a tornado.

Dam a stream and it will create a new channel.

Resist, and the tide will sweep you off your feet.

 

Allow, and grace will carry you to higher ground.

The only safety is in letting it all  in- the wild and the weak-

fear, fantasies, failures and success.

 

When loss rips off the doors of the heart or sadness veils your vision with despair,

practice becomes simply bearing the truth.

In the choice to let go of your known way of being,

the whole world is revealed to your new eyes.

 

May you allow more,

Namaste,
