This is a poem about the way of letting go and acceptance bringing peace as exemplified by the journey of the river to the sea.

A Drop in the Ocean

Peace is a river that
Flows to the sea
Peace comes in knowing
Our true destiny
Absorbed in the oneness
One with the light
Like a drop in the ocean
Expands with delight

Acceptance

A river lows gently
Round rocks in its way
So we must travel
Accepting the play
Of darkness and light
Of uphill and down
We must flow like a river
Trusting the ground

Trusting the flow
To guide us along
Till we come to the ocean
And our home we have found

The Ocean Within

Our home is not outside
In the trouble and strife
Our home is internal
A place of delight
An ocean within
Where we’re one with it all
Where nothing else matters
And peace covers all

Our Reflection

We must stay at the center
We must shine like the sun
And deal with life’s trials
While at home in the one

When peace is internal
It’s reflected outside
So our world will respond
When in peace we abide

The Balancing Point

So if we want peace
To cover the earth
We must find it inside
And let it flow forth
From the core of our being
To our family and friends
And all creatures living
No beginning no end

It comes from the source
That’s within you and me
It’s the state in the middle
It can’t be explained
But only experienced
It can’t be obtained
By effort and struggle
This balancing point
But rests in our being
Beyond any thought

Letting Go


Let go and let go
Is the way that is given
So let’s let go of judgments
And let go of pride
And let go of everything
That would the truth hide
Let’s let go of ego
And in source abide
And we’ll flow like a river
To the ocean inside.

I write about spirituality, health, psychology, and ecology. Usually in poetic form (my 1st love) but now I'm venturing into the world of
articles. Exciting!

You have spread wisdom in few lines, C D Moore. We travel towards the ocean of peace and tranquility. We do not own anything here though we hold few in trust. Everything will be left behind including our outer covering to open our true self when we leave this beautiful shore. Let us enhance the creative process by being co-creators chipping in and lending our shoulders to the wheel guided by the unseen force. Let our motivation come from the spark of creator within us that all are blessed with - siva

I love it. It relaxed me. My favorite lines are "absorbed in the oneness/ one with the light/ like a drop in the ocean/ expands with delight". Excellent creation!
