Mindful Moment

Let It Go

by: Danna Faulds

Let go of the ways you thought life would unfold;

the holding of plans or dreams or expectations –

Let it all go. Save your strength to swim with the tide.

The choice to fight what is here before you now will only result

in struggle, fear, and desperate attempts to flee from the very energy

you long for. Let go.

Let it all go and flow with the grace that washes through your days

whether you receive it gently or with all your quills raised to defend

against invaders. Take this on faith; the mind may never find the

explanations that it seeks, but you will move forward nonetheless.

Let go, and the wave’s crest will carry you to unknown shores,

beyond your wildest dreams or destinations.

Let it all go and find the place of rest and peace, and certain transformation.

    1. I love her work, Barb. I read her poetry toward the beginning of my classes when students are doing Dirgha Swasam (deep breathing) and centering. I feel like they prompt and support an inner journey which is what yoga is really all about.
