Let Go of Everything That Does Not Serve You

Strength always

Comes

With letting go

For empty is

Waiting to be fed

As a baby waits

To be filled

With mother’s milk

Always good,

Perfect and warm.

Dear One,

Let go of everything

That does not

Serve you

Then lay, rest

And suckle here,

Until your emptiness

Becomes

A strong new you.

    Like that notion of our “emptiness becoming a new you”. Gonna use this sometime and will reference your blog.

      The last time this happened to me was when I acknowledged some anger I had carried around for a very long time in front of the person I “held responsible” for it. There was forgiveness and all of a sudden I let go of the anger. The next couple of days were amazing. I felt like liquid good was being poured into me in the form of new feelings, ideas etc. It was wonderful. Now that is not the ultimate emptiness. That may never be fed and shouldn’t I guess. Would love to see what you do with it.:)

    This is so true, but sometimes so hard to do. Thanks for sharing it.
