by Mary Oliver

Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word.
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.
The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.
But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather,
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.
Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.

—"Today" by Mary Oliver (found in her published book of poetry called "a Thousand Mornings" & winner of the Pulitzer Prize)
This is my mantra for the new year, I am letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep and not just for a day, but for at least a year maybe for the rest of my life. My spiritual practice these days is about letting things be as they are and accepting them.
No more fixing or controlling.
Happy New Year!

I always love to hear from you.
