She Let Go


Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of fear. She let go of 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

Ďrightí reasons.

Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didnít ask anyone for advice. She didnít read a book on how to let go.

She just let go.

She let go of all 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


right. She didnít promise to let go. She didnít journal about it.

She didnít write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public

announcement. She didnít check the weather report or read her daily


She just let go.

She didnít analyze whether she should let go. She didnít call her

friends to

discuss the matter. She didnít utter one word.

She just let go.

No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or


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 wasnít good. It wasnít 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.

Hereís to giving ourselves the gift of letting goÖ

Thereís only one guru ~ you.

    Thanks for the blog; too often we try to be someone other than ourselves. We judge ourselves based on what we see in others; and always come up short. I know that is the way I am a lot.
