Surrendering to Spirit, Letting go of the past

This is a poem I wrote about letting go, surrendering to the flow of Spirit. The past few weeks have been life changing for me. It is difficult to change, but we have to move passed the fear.

Letting Go

Time pulls us forward
Reluctant though we may be
There is no choice to this ticking
No way to reverse the spinning
The space we exist in
Is never still
Atoms. molecules, all bumping and moving
in empty space
Constantly changing
Will you cling to the old?
When your skin wants to shed
and it is too painful to stay
Or will you step into the Light
And leave the past behind

Change is painful. Sometimes we choose it; sometimes it seems it simply happens with no explanation or reason. The more I open up to Spirit, the more I quiet my ego mind and listen, the more I am convinced nothing happens by chance. What we put in has an effect, and just like a flow of water we can block what Spirit has planned or we can let it flow. Not only that, we can choose to move our hand to assist and enjoy the feeling of the water washing over us.

That is the way, Kaianni. As we "progress" we have to swim with the tide more - no point against it. We are facing heavier odds but we keep fighting - onward, forward we go to keep alive - siva

Very true words, Siva.
I was just thinking about Shiva this morning as I am posting these. It is indeed the same process, letting go of the little ego self so the higher self can take root. Another lovely coincidence in your name, thank you!

Sometimes you have to let go and move forward in life without looking back, it's hard to do, but you just have to do it.
