I feel my emotions and my pain. I reawaken my passion. I surrender to this moment.

Have you ever thought of what it would be like to be a tree root in the ground? Or a lotus leaf? These things in life have completely surrendered to the moments life brings to them, yet at the same time have such passion and energy that they never stop trying.

A root, so strong and searching, always under foot yet always groping and providing the sustenance for the tree to grow strong and proud.

A lotus leaf, passionately in bloom with such delicacy and intimacy that can hardly be expressed in words, yet emotional and painful remembering the relatively short time spent before returning back into the earth.

What beautiful surrender. Today I will try to surrender.
