Sometimes the most revolutionary thing you can do is stop trying
Stop trying so damn hard to be clever, to be loveable, to be worthy of friendship, to be cherished
Stop working to fill the potholes and empty spaces in the heart with community
Stop striving to get needs met, stop setting up the conditions for it to all come together
Sometimes the most revolutionary action is simply to sit
That we will be loved anyway
That just getting up in the morning and going about our daily business is all that is needed for kindness to flow in
That our needs will be met in the most surprising of ways and those that don’t get met will keep
That love doesn’t need to be earned and that it simply is and will be without any effort.
Sometimes that most revolutionary thought is that you don’t need to kick to be carried, to float with ease in the arms of the world.
Sometime the most revolutionary cry is
I AM ENOUGH.
Can I open my arms to embrace this revolution? Let it seep into my bones? Can you?
