The Absence of Striving

The Absence of Striving

By Amba Gale

Perhaps,
after all,
there is nothing to do but be,

to drop inside,

deep inside,

and merge with what gives me peace.

Perhaps,

granted to me
one by one by one by one by one
by the ever Living, ever Giving, Stream of Grace.

Perhaps
all this building outside
has outrun its course.
and my work is simple.

What is mine will come to me of its own accord.

“Patience,” counsels the inner voice.

“Find your purpose in ‘Wait.’

Walk inside,

where you can merge with the Great Blue Heron who waits patiently.”

This absence of striving
brings me
to a bed of Deep Rest.

Instead, they listen, deeply, and then they…

There is a straight line that only you know how to draw that takes you from here to there or, more precisely, from there to here, in a world of possibility. And, if you follow it you will be true to your own North Star. It will not fail you. No matter the turbulent and unprecedented circumstances of your life. For one thing, you will know that you are being guided. For another, you will know the Guidance is true. The Future, If you let it, will magnetize you into it. Do not let your mind or your considerations, whatever…
