The Art of Letting Go

Set down your weapons.
Whatever they may be.
Set down your pain.
Set down your shame.
Place on the earth the very urgency to become your success,
your name, your story, or your ardent fear of it.

Stop the fight. 
The fighting for right.
For wrong.
For any conclusion at all...

Unclench the fists of battle.
Release the tension of self-war.
Receive the grace before you.
