What Would It Feel Like to Trust the Universe?
By Amara Karuna

What would it feel like
To have no fear of the future?
What if I could stride forward with confidence and faith 
Knowing that whatever comes is medicine?
Assured that I will be equal to whatever task arises, or at least give it a good try?

What if the waves of change and destruction 
Can be met with interest,
Free from anxiety?
What if death is not to be feared?

What if there is a path through the pain
A shining trail through the darkness 
That can always be found by asking 
And blazed with a light from within?

What if I could face a dark cloud of imminent doom with equanimity?

What if I could see the people vying to control the world
As aspects of the world mind
Unwilling to admit their tiny specks of power 
Are actually minute particles
in a vastness
That can never be tamed?

What would it feel like
To lean in to the future grinning
Like leaning in to a strong wild wind
With arms spread wide
And hair whipping everywhere 
Letting the forces that guide us
Have their way?

What would it feel like
To really trust the universe.
