Surrender

Imported from old computer 834

(Grand Tetons, May 2015)

 

Your refreshing stream of universal love

astonishingly cascades forth,

flowing generously for all to enjoy.

 

And I…

I am the immovable boulder midstream

stubbornly impeding your movement,

while cutting the feet of those

who long to enter into your love-stream

with my slippery, jagged edges.

 

Keep washing over me…

until your stream lovingly smooths my ragged edges

with abrasive grit culled from other rocks;

until your stream tenderly soothes my rough surfaces

with cleansing rinses that heal and hone.

 

And I…

I will become the rounded stone

allowing your love to flow freely around me,

while giving the feet of those

who long to enter into your love-stream

a stepping stone for drawing near.

 

Keep washing into me…

until your stream eventually penetrates my hidden depths

with your gentle but persistent nudges;

until your stream removes my stony hardness of heart

with your needful and compassionate erosion.

 

And I…

I will become the porous stone

gradually opening to your love moving within me;

to become less stone and more space

for you to simply flow through me to those

who long to enter your love-stream.

 

Keep washing under me…

until your stream finally dislodges my stubborn stance

with your pervasive and directing flow;

until I tumble free from all that is holding me back,

and allow your love to carry me away.
