Let It Go

 

Let go of the ways you thought life

would unfold; the holding of plans

or dreams or expectations--Let it

all go.  Save your strength to swim

with the tide.  The choice to fight

what is here before you now will

only result in struggle, fear, and

desperate attempts to flee from the

very energy you long for.  Let go.

Let it all go and flow with the grace

that washes through your days whether

you receive it gently or with all your

quills raised to defend against invaders.

Take this on faith:  the mind may never

find the explanations that it seeks, but

you will move forward nonetheless.

Let go, and the wave's crest will carry

you to unknown shores, beyond your

wildest dreams or destinations.  Let it

all go and find the place of rest and

peace, and certain transformation.
