Together

At a certain point,

letting go

of everything

became the only real

option.

There was a

gentle surrender,

a resetting of parts

ready to work

together

in new ways —

a release of the

continuous

dialogue of mind

that would have

held me back.

This Natural Peace

There was relief

in not needing

to fit

all of the pieces

of my heart

together

all at once.

I found comfort

in allowing life

to unfold

from within

and freedom

in experiencing myself

and others

in this natural state

of peace.

With a Surrender

Moments of deep

peace always came

with a surrender —

a prayer of

admittance

that there was

really no acceptable

way of proceeding

alone,

as a separate part.

The peace was in

seeing a little more

clearly

from an expanded

sense of self.

Without Doubt

It became clear

that everything most

sacred

had come out of

a quiet prayer.

I knew,

without doubt,

that every single

real treasure

in my life had

come out of

an ever deepening

inner surrender —

a sinking down

and trusting in

my own true essence

a little more

completely.

Whatever It Was

At a certain point,

the only real

option was to hold

the space within —

to retreat

in surrender

to the quiet prayer

of my heart —

not knowing

how or if

it would affect

anything else.

But it was the only

real option left —

again and again.

The landing became

softer

after a while.

And it didn’t seem

to matter so much

what met me

in that place.

Whatever it was

had to know

the sweetness

of that same

surrender.

The Surrender

I learned

the sweetness

in not having

answers.

I learned to

show up

with my fear

and let go

of everything

I thought I knew

in each moment —

trusting I would be

met.

Words came.

Important pieces

showed up.

But it was

the surrender

to my own unique

journey,

my own higher Self,

that I found

most sweet.

Empty

I searched

and gathered

and carried

and tried

and learned

many things

in hope

of finding

and sharing

something that would

make some kind of

difference

or bring some kind

of relief.

And I found the deepest

kind of healing came

in setting it all down —

daring to show up

empty.

The Quieting

The quieting

continued to deepen.

Outer and inner experiences

were no longer seen

as obstacles,

but as life simply

showing up

as I had witnessed

my own self

showing up

to meet life.

And in this quieting,

there was often

sadness —

as again and again,

I offered up

my whole self

to something other than

what my mind imagined

life to be.

But there was always

great peace.
