The Surrender

finding ease
the breath carries me
beyond doubt
into quiet emptiness

here lies safety
amidst the
jealousy
comparisons and
desires for fame and fortune

yet god understands the ego’s needs
we are only asked to look at them
one by one
surrendering their grip on our hearts
we expand into
His Grace
where our smallness is
nourished
until we, no longer disconnected
from our source,
experience ONE-NESS

and the fear trickles out

where I and God and You
merge

dualism is a lie
there is nowhere i can hide where God does not find
console, and caress me
dry my tears
in this body
now
