Letting Go

Letting go

of incessantly measuring

and comparing ourselves to others

leads to spontaneous acts

of courage and compassion.

It’s like learning a dance step well enough

that we no longer need to keep looking down at our feet.

Eventually we feel the music and the movement,

and that’s enough to be perfectly in tune

with our partner and right on the beat.
