“Allow” by Danna Faulds

There is no controlling life.
Try corralling a lightning 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.

~ Danna Faulds

    Love it. I have read a number of her poems in searches for “yoga poetry”…I love this one and the word allow has become a staple in my personal practice and the way I live and begin to learn to teach. Allow and Invite….”practice becomes simply bearing the truth”
