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.
