stop stopping

The tools you need

to meet the moment you are being presented with

will always be placed right in your hands

the moment you unclench them

 

The tools you do not need

or are not yet ready to wield

will always fall from your hands

no matter how tightly you hold on

 

Stop talking about the work

 

do the work

 

step back

 

Stop helping

be help

 

stop writing about the divine

write from it

 

stop trying to stop

just be a witness

 

stop judging your process

it traps you in it

 

what you resist

persists

every time

 

be a witness

bring love

and compassion

 

pray for patience

with self

for the path is always walked

far less gracefully

than the unchecked ego would like to imagine

or expect

or desire

here and now

 

that does not mean it is not full of grace

o yes

if you get real quiet

and real still

and real simple

you can feel grace

carrying you

and me

all of us

to the sea
