Allow-by Danna Faulds

There is no controlling life.

Try corralling a lightening bolt,

containing a tornado. Dam a stream, and it will create a new

channel. Resist, and the tide will sweep you off your feet.

Allow, and grace will carry

you to higher ground. The only

safety lies in letting is all in-

the wild with the weak; fear,

fantasies, failures and success.

when loss rips off the doors of

the heart, or sadness veils your

vision with despair, practice

becomes simply bearing the truth.

In the choice to let go of your

known way of being, the whole

world is revealed to your new eyes
