She let go.

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 โ€˜rightโ€™ reasons.

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

She didnโ€™t ask anyone for advice.

She didnโ€™t read a book on how to let go.

She didnโ€™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 didnโ€™t promise to let go.

She didnโ€™t journal about it.

She didnโ€™t write the projected date in her Day-Timer.

She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.

She didnโ€™t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.

She just let go.

She didnโ€™t analyze whether she should let go.

She didnโ€™t call her friends to discuss the matter.

She didnโ€™t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.

She didnโ€™t call the prayer line.

She didnโ€™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 wasnโ€™t good and it wasnโ€™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 forevermoreโ€ฆ

You are magic in never ending motion

82423.jpg

Do not be steadfast
In your clinging
To the woman
You have become
Celebrate her
Honour her
Adore her
Sit with her
For only as long
As her wings
Do not smother you
Into her lap of comfort
The web of the familiar
Designed
To foster
A kind of attachment
That persuades you
Into believing
You have arrived
But in truth
Only renders
Your experience
Of you
To fifty shades
Of more
Of the same
For you
Are an
Infinite being
Always in motion
Heeding the call
To expand
Breath by breath
Into the adventure
Of uncovering
The unending
Vastness
Of you.

Permission

Opt-Give-yourself-permission-to-pursue-your-vision.jpg

It seems to me
that we often ask
for advice
when what
we really wantย 
is permission

Permission
to let go
to start over
to choose something different

I know I have

More than once
I have found myself
asking for guidance
when what I really want
is permission

Permission
to do what I already know
I want to do
but am scared to do

Because
like so many of us
I learned not to trust myself
at least not without
some sort of
external validation

And definitely
not without punishing myself
for the ways I feel
I have done it incorrectly
in the past

As if punishment
is a necessary
part of the process
As if without punishment
I will make the same โ€œmistakes” again

Silly
Sad
Misguided
for sure…

And truly not the best use of my energy
Truly not the quickest way
to get where I want to go

Simply not that useful, not at all

So I have been trying something new
Perhaps you try it too…
Compassion
and care

Yes, compassion and care
over punishment and self attack

Give yourself permission
to start over
this time
without harshness
this time
kindly

You might be surprised
just how much easier
it is to start
when you choose
to start
from there

Trading ego for true power

8

When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego,
and when we escape like squirrels turning in the
cages of our personality
and get into the forests again,
we shall shiver with cold and fright
but things will happen to us
so that we don’t know ourselves.
Cool, unlying life will rush in,
and passion will make our bodies taut with power,
we shall stamp our feet with new power
and old things will fall down,
we shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like
burnt paper.

– D.H. Lawrence
