Breath In Breath Out

Breath In Breath Out

Teach me to loosen my grip on life
Teach me to open my hands and receive
Teach me to release
Teach me to breath

There was something about the way the water was always moving,
Something about the way the sand melted beneath my feet,
Something about the ever changing symphony of crashing waves
Coupled with the constant whisper of moving water
That seemed to impress upon my heart a message:


Stop desperately grasping for solid ground,
Insisting on gripping life with a tight fist of control,
Only to feel things you attach to slip through your fingers like sand.
Life is too big to be contained.

My breathing echoed the rhythm of the waves
In synch with the call that resonated within:

Breath in.
Breath out.
Welcome what comes.
Then let it go.

We all crave solid ground.
We yearn for the ability to fully understand,
To contain, to label, to predict, to be able to say “I know”.
There is a fear that bubbles up at the thought of change,
The feeling of unstable ground, uncertainty, or admitting “I don’t know”.
And so, in resistance to that fear, we hold onto what we can,
Unknowingly limiting ourselves to the full majesty of life
So beautifully manifested in the wild ocean waves.

No amount of control, or familiar terrain
Can match the peace of surrender’s realm.
There is a balance in the totality of life
With all its ebbs and flows
That we miss out on when we insist on control.
There is a magic and beauty in the surrendering,
Submitting, and softening that the universe was asking to show me more fully,
And I felt compelled to whisper
I’m ready.
