Sweet Surrender

When Love is our guide…concerns disappear.

Psalm 23:1

The LORD is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.

+++

When I am attached to material things…I’m in chains.

My concerns are for things that are temporary.

When I am not attached to material things…I’m free.

My hands and heart are open to things that last.

I’m able to let go of the masks that I have accumulated trying to be what I’m not…trying to conform to a culture that is immersed in the illusion of a happiness based on passing things.

When I release those masks…my true self can emerge.

I’m free to be present to what actually is.

I am immersed in the sacred.

I am part of the miracle of this one life.

God is everywhere…or as St. Paul put it, in God “we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

I am held and sustained by Love.

I lack nothing.

I am free to be me and to reach out in oneness to everyone and everything.
