Bow to confusion! – Jeff Foster

Bow to confusion!

It is the fertile ground

from which great clarity blossoms

in its own sweet time.


It is not confusing,

when you bow.


Bow to anger!

It contains the power

of life itself.

It creates universes.

It rises suddenly to protect the organism.

It values your unique voice.


There is no violence,

when you bow.


Bow to sorrow.

It keeps the heart soft.

It grounds you in the awareness

of impermanence and change.


It is not depressing,

when you bow.


Bow to fear.

It is trying to protect you

from what you aren’t yet

ready to face.

It guides you gently

into the Unknown.


You are not afraid,

when you bow.
