She Let Go

She let go.

Without a thought or a word,

she let go.  She let go of the fear.

She let go of the judgments.  She

let go of the confluence of

opinions swarming around her

head.  She let go of the committee

of  indecision within her.  She let

go of all the ‘right’ reasons.

Wholly and completely, without

hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice.

She didn’t read a book on how to

let go.  She didn’t search the

scriptures.  She just let go.  She let

go of all the memories that held

her back.  She let go of all the

anxiety that kept her from moving

forward.  She let go of the

planning and all of the

calculations about how to

do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go.  She

didn’t journal about it.  She didn’t

write the projected date in her

Day-Timer.  She made no public

announcement and put no ad in

the paper.  She didn’t check the

weather report or read her daily

horoscope.  She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she

should let go.  She didn’t call her

friends to discuss the matter.  She

didn’t do a five-step Spiritual

Mind Treatment.  She didn’t call

the prayer line.  She didn’t utter

one word.  She just let go.

No one was around when it

happened.  There was no applause

or congratulations.  No

one thanked her or praised her.

No one noticed a thing.  Like a

leaf falling from a tree, she just

let go.  There was no effort.  There

was no struggle.  It wasn’t good

and it wasn’t bad.  It was what it

was, and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let

it all be.  A small smile came over

her face.  A light breeze blew through her.  And the sun and the

moon shone forevermore…

Today’s “leaping exercise”:  Allow yourself 15+ minutes of uninterrupted time.  Surround yourself with items that help you feel comfortable (a blanket, pillow, candle).  Quietly breathe in and out, in and out.  Allow your mind to become quiet. Slowly and quietly, read it imagining that this is your story.  Read it out loud and experience it as ‘you’.  When finished, close your eyes and let yourself ‘go’ in whatever way your are inspired.  Experience the feeling.  Experience the well-being.  Experience….you.
