Mmm… so I wrote this back in Sept 2020, and I was inspired by a sutra study session about Isvara Pranidhana, which is said to be a practice of Surrender. Grateful to Paige Elenson for leading that dharma talk then and to Seth Barron for revisiting it this year. Otherwise this poem would not have seen the light of day. I read it in class this week for the first time, and well, I felt something. It pushed to make the higher call, to share this with you. I’ve always wanted to be as inspiring as my teachers, as powerful as my favourite poet, Morgan Harper Nichols, and I realised that if I can inspire myself with my own words, it doesn’t matter what others think – I am on my own journey to greatness!
