Asheville Spirituality, Satsang, Meditation
(C) 2012 Howard McQueen
I don't know about you,
but my own attempts at letting go
often leave claw marks
in what I finally release.
I have this tendency to hold on so
to that which repeatedly signals me
that it is well past my time to let go.
I find myself to be the author of this inner struggle,
this inner conflict
not wanting to recognize the ever-present
shift in all things external,
not remaining pliable,
and not remembering that I am immersed in the great cosmic flow.
