On Wrestling

Whatever it is we are wrestling with

Perhaps we can take a moment to pause

Take a slow, calm even deep breath

And ground ourselves by bringing awareness

To our connection with the earth.


Sometimes the wrestling is productive and leads to vision and insight.

Other times the wrestling is a distraction that leads us astray.


May our pausing help us discern

What are the skillful means

That will guide us in rising up

To bring forth blessing

In our vulnerability and strength.
