I love this profound and beautiful expression of radical surrender from Fred LaMotte:
To make affirmations of abundance expresses lack.
To pray for strength confesses weakness.
To ask for healing is to be sick.
But simply to embrace what is
may be a deeper prayer….
I embrace ‘poverty,’
I expand into emptiness,
I don’t ask for ‘more.’
Is the universe not born from a boundless vacuum?
Not fearing the void, I ripple with wealth.
I confess that I am powerless
in utter surrender.
I abandon striving, and discover
the immoveable strength that is nearer
than the next breath…
I accept my dis-ease,
I welcome brokenness,
I hug this body.
In non-resistance, unity.
In unity, healing.
This very moment I refuse
to generate conflict
by changing the suchness
into the ‘should.’
I nestle into wholeness
and little things begin to happen
All that greens with nectar,
all that buzzes with life,
