There is this pull in us humans
to control the flow of life,
its natural development and the growth of things.
Resisting this pull to control
is the spiritual practice of “letting go” as in:
Letting life be, letting it flow, letting it transform
in its own time-
in its own way.
When we try to shape life
into the ways we imagine,
it will resist us,
and we will suffer.
We get restricted, stuck or anxious.
When we allow life
“to be”, flow, transform –
and we lean into it, appreciate it, welcome it –
life will reveal itself
in new colors, forms, shapes and ways
never known before.
Let go! Life invites you to dance with it!
