a powerful deal

Surrender is not a path or practice.

But it takes practice to
Bring yourself to the doorway
Of your longing,
Of your suffering.

Practice to stay
hovering in the heat,
On the edge
of what is unresolved,
In the hope
of one more stone to turn over.

By allowing the mind to
have its way with you,
suffering arises.

The search to understand,
To resolve
simply becomes intolerable and unnecessary
In the face of what is whole and true.

When you surrender to what is
You don’t lose your mana.
It is, in fact, all you are left with.

It’s yours
To hold
But not to keep.

Family inheritances are ended.

Gratitude begins to give it away,
for free.

What a great deal !

It is an act of profound kindness
Wisely facilitated by the soul
through karma,
Lovingly embraced by the Heart
As its freedom.

Turn radically within,
Surrender to your longing
Find what you long for
And be found by what longs for you.

You have the power to transform
