She Just Let Go

She Let Go
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of 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-planner.
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 analyse 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.

Here’s to giving ourselves the gift of letting go…
There’s only one Guru ~ you.

  1. Thank you so much Sue. I needed this today. In fact this is what I have needed to hear over the last few weeks (months?) of struggling and sinking. I can see now how ridiculous it is, how much I have been searching for 'how' to do this. When I don't need anyone or anything else to show me or give me permission or tell me the proper way. I just need to do it. I will try! xxx Sarah

    1. I don't know exactly why I chose today to post this, my post was going to be something completely different and this was waiting in the wings as it means so much to me. I'm so glad it helped you. :-)

  2. This is the fourth time today I have received this message in one form or another. Universe calling!

  3. This is beautiful! I'm an endless planner which sometimes stalls into do nothing. So thanks for this nudge!

  4. This has really helped me and I have shared it with a few friends. Thanks

  5. Well now, that is just the thing.
