……allow the waves

“Let what comes, come. 
Let what goes, go. 
Don’t try to push away what comes. 
It’s already here and it will pass. 
Don’t try to cling to what goes. 
The leaving is natural. Bless the leaving too. 
Let what stays, stay. 
Let what dies, die. 
Let what lives, live. 
Be the wide open space 
for all of it. 
Every thought, every feeling. 
Be the awareness. 
Be the ocean. 
Allow the waves.” 

by Jeff Foster

Musically yours, Gregory
