Wilful Chilling

Most of us know that relaxing and letting go are the key to feeling happier and more present. What is more challenging is knowing how to enter this state at will. As I pondered on the letting go I began to realise how subtle and divine an act it is.


You cannot make yourself let go

Can’t force into release

There is no effort in the flow

Can’t orchestrate deep peace

There is no action in ‘allow’

However hard you try

There’ll be no sweat upon your brow

Yet with relief you’ll sigh

For yielding is a subtle shift

It starts with saying yes

To all those big old feeling gifts

That show up in the mess

The moment that your soul accepts

what’s vulnerable and tender

Is powerfully effortless

Inhabit your surrender
