Allow by Danna Foulds

A beautiful grey day
A very beautiful grey day

There is no controlling life.
Try corralling a lightening bolt,
containing a tornado. Dam a
stream and it will create a new
channel. Resist, and the tide
will sweep you off your feet.

Allow, and grace will carry
you to higher ground. The only
safety lies in letting it all in –
the wild and the weak; fear,
fantasies, failures and success.
When loss rips off the doors of
the heart, or sadness veils your
vision with despair, practice
becomes simply bearing the truth.

In the choice to let go of your
known way of being, the whole
world is revealed to your new eyes.

What would happen if we just let life live through us?

A challenge for today’s yoga practice: Let life be as it is. Let your bones, your muscles, your coordination, your strength, your concentration, your motivation be as they are. Say yes to them. Check this out and see what happens.
