When will you surrender fully the Chase?
Does it excite you, fill you with adrenaline and cause a high you can’t describe?
Thinking to get a particular outcome, polish it, write the plan of your life, while you are so caught up in it all, running faster and faster you forgot what you’re even chasing anymore?
Recognizing that if you simply stopped a moment, you would begin to see that all you needed to do was
Accept it was yours all along
But the Chase feels good in your body, it makes you question more things, makes you feel like you’re in a movie on a discovery safari, hunting down what you know you rightfully deserve,
gotta figure this out, gotta make it happen,
Must move faster, speeding past, going so so fast, you forget your own name in the process – willing to sacrifice it all away, the pits of your identity gone, weak, lost, forgetting the power that lives in side of you.
Chasing faster, if only I could reach it, seduced by the avenues of success, Feeling it washing over you as you reach,
but its still so far out of your grasp, so you run faster towards it, push harder forward – press on.
But the sacrifice gets too much, you lose yourself in the dust and you suddenly realize – all you had to do was
Accept it was always yours to begin with.
It starts with a moment of Proving yourself right, It grows deeper when you feel you’re not enough, so you simply ask yourself a deeper question “How can I simply push harder to make this mine?” Isn’t it enough yet?
And the chase consumes you, it haunts your life, waiting, wishing, wanting, desire, feels simply – always out of reach.
So What will it take?
When will the going Give and the Sacrifice feel justified – To Give your Life for what its been given to you for – and yet so many, push down their desires to the sweet corners of their minds and hearts, whispering to themselves, someday…
Someday i’ll surrender the chase – i’ll give up the sweet high of the hunt, running forward, chasing it all until i forgot who i was – and someday, i’ll finally give in to the sweet voice that is always telling me the way,
And someday, i’ll get over it all and remember Perfectionism drains my soul, weak, exhausted, Push Harder, they said, work harder, isn’t that the way,
What are you fighting for anyway?
Who are you trying to Prove?
The moment you gave it all away – and allowed the world to decide who you get to be
Someday I’ll surrender the chase, – But What now? Who am I without it?
Who am I in this void of no longer figuring it out, no longer reaching beyond, no longer willing to sacrifice it all, no longer willing to jump at all costs, no longer willing to give it all up – Who am I in this void of surrendering the chase?
Everything. Being with What Is and recognizing,
It was always meant to be yours,
It was always meant to exist for you,
And Accept it. Accept it. Accept it – higher self pleads with you,
Just Accept it.
Recognize that as you fall into the void of nothingness, you suddenly grasp everything, you surrender the hunt running rampant in your mind – you surrender the feeling you had to have, you surrender all the rules you thought you had to have it, to be it, to DO all the things you said you would do – surrender it all.
Surrender the problems, surrender the sacrifice, surrender it ALL.
In that space beyond the chase, in that space beyond the high of the hunt, breathing deeper, in the stillness,
if only you pulled the cobwebs away, and stepped out of the illusion
you would begin to see that all you needed to do was
Accept it was yours all along
