In the process of awakening
There is a letting go.
What once was pleasurable
May no longer inspire us.
There is a sense of loss
Along with opening to the new.

Just as night gives way to dawn
And day releases into dusk.
It is the nature of things.
Life is a series of highs and lows.
Cycles come and go.
Can you be with it?

Namaste

  3. I was with a group visiting a Hindu temple yesterday where this exact sentiment was spoken by the Hindu priest in explaining his faith to us, and I said there are very similar sentiments in what Jesus said. It seems “letting go” is common to all faiths at the contemplative foundations.

  11. Lovely. This really spoke to me. I’m noticing the transient nature of what brings me joy.
