Permission

Permission

I can't resist these beautiful lines from one of my favourite poets, storytellers and mystics Oriah. Just stop for one minute - read, breathe and enjoy. Permission is granted!

 

We do not need permission

To live our life guided by that which lives within us.

And yet, too often, some part of our heart

Waits for someone else to give the go-ahead

Before we fully embody our wisdom and our silliness,

Our joy and our sorrow.

 

This is what it means to give our power away:

To court the approval of others

To silently ask for permission that is not another's to give

To spend our lives waiting

For that which was within us all along.
