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.
