being fully aligned with your heart’s deepest yearning

words and photo by Brian Thompson.

when you’re fully aligned
with your heart’s deepest yearning,
it’s easier to go with the flow
of life’s ongoing stream,
and sometime troubling waters.

resistance slips away,
as conflicting currents
mellow and calm.

you won’t feel the need
to desperately hang on
to all the distracting things
that tempt you as they float by;
you know they’ll only drag you down.

when you're aligned
with your greatest of intentions,
you can let go of the driftwood and debris
and stay afloat all on your own;
trusting where the river takes you,
into abundant pools
of serenity and serendipity.
