Let Innocence Lead

Posted on Aug 01, 2017 by mackieo

"Starting anew is not starting over. It is not an act of tolerance. It is realizing the power of surrender, of allowing things to land and thus begin again. Surrendering is not an act of submission. It is an act of innocence. When there is nothing left to do, innocence must lead." - Matthew Sanford

"I would entertain you but I won't because to do so is a sin against God. I want none of it. I humbly ask you to remove it from me. Thy will not mine be done. Please have the evil spirits swallow my concerns and send them back to hell from whence they came. With no desire for success, no anxiety about failure, indifferent to results, the yogin burns up all actions in the fire of wisdom. God grant me the serenity to except the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
From my teacher Darren Rhodes

Put aside my agenda and my fear. Drop my self protective strategies. Let innocence lead me to love, meaning, and purpose. 

Start anew or Start over.  Either way. Anytime. Every time. All the time. Start over and over and over and over. Dogs do this with great skill. 

Whenever you need to start over. Even if you just woke up and you're 10 minutes in - start over.

Start over and over and over and over.

Let innocence lead.
Let innocence lead.
Let innocence lead.
