Sweet morning to you.
My intention when I heard this poem was to send it out to all the mamas I know going through transitions and open to receiving maybe a little healing and empowerment from these words …maybe peace from these words … maybe a smile/sigh. But you know, it's bigger than just mamas going through transitions isn't it. Would it be fair to say probably all of us - women and men - have something to let go of or are in the process of that letting go of … right now … life is always in this process of change and letting go comes with change doesn't it. Some bigger changes than others - some seemingly harder. Sometimes the letting go feels so heart wrenching and seems so darn complicated and pretty impossible ... Please receive these words into your heart if they help at all and send this feeling of ease ... of acceptance - with me to the hearts of all those who may need it at this time and let this create a ripple of sighs and dropping shoulders. I love Rev. Saffire Rose's simplicity and send you great love and great peace with her poem.
She (He) Let Go - Poem by Rev. Safire Rose
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgements. 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 the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of all 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 daily horoscopes. 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 5-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 ….
