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 of the memories that held her back
She let go of all of 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 ☼ ☼ ☼
