We miss your earthly presence, but are comforted by your spiritual presence.
"Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power then defending or hanging on". Eckhart Tolle
She Let Go
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go of the 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 "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 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.
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 light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.
