An open palm and a consecrated life

Because with fists closed, nails digging into your grasp.
Slowly your muscles start to relax.
Natural progression means you cant hold on forever.
And as your hand slowly releases you start to see your world as it was meant to be.

Palms flat you receive-

and palms flat you provide.

Let it soak in by resting on your hand there. 

but don't keep it.
It's not yours.
It was never intended solely for you.

Once you fully understand.

And I mean the kind of understanding that moves you to take action- 
there is no turning around. 

"All of it will change and all of it will pass into what comes next and there is no going back. 

The question is, will we meet this passing with a closed fist and a hard heart

or with an open palm and consecrated life? - Adam S. Miller , Letters to a Young Mormon
