Back against the wall...

Have you ever tried to pry a star fish off a rock?
It is almost impossible without a knife
I don't recommend it
It will damage the star fish
and you don't want to do that do you?
It is best to let it alone 
some times it will move
ever so slowly into another position or place
but it takes a long time
The underside of the star fish has thousands of tiny tinnicles
that grab for a surface to cling to
they have to
to be able to withstand the beating of the surf 
to keep from being tumbled amongst the rocks
or from being misplaced
I don't know about you
but I can see just how much I have been like the star fish
I have thosands of tiny
 but strong 
opinions, routines, habits, beliefs, memories, experiences
that keep me clinging and inmobile
awaiting the potential pounding from life
Movement for me is slow
sometimes hard to coordinate
Sometimes I have to let go of 
a lot
even if it is alot of little things
to make progress
Protection or progress
which do you choose?
