I’ve been reading this poem out loud to most of my customers this week as part of their meditation practice. It really speaks to my heart and hit me hard today. It’s such a beautiful reflection on entering into the flow of the universe and trusting, always trusting, that absolutely everything will be more than all right.

Headlong Into Love

I slip into the swift river of grace

the moment I stop trying to control

my fate. The current takes my

breath away, leaving me amazed

at the release. Use me up, I say.

Smooth my rough edges

until I offer no resistance to the flow.

Within the enclosure of my open heart,

may awareness wake and take aim

at my last attempts to grasp the known.

I pray to give myself over to a strength

that isn’t mine, to be carried by the

energy of change and evolution.

I pray to tumble headlong into love

and not reach out even once

to try and break the fall.

Danna Faulds

Big Namaste!






About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
