The surrender mantra

Let it all go
nothing to protect
surrender again

The unfeared descent

The sun knows its slow descent
but note how it does not just go out:
At its lowest point, it unfurls its majesty,
its moment of greatest open giving

The path of emptiness

Let go of suffering – what are you to do with it?
Let go of joy – what are you to do with it?
For you will not lose what you think you will lose
and you will not gain what you think you will gain

The eating prayer

Stopping at sated,
the bite before full:
Letting you, O Lord, fill to true completion
