A beautiful mantra for letting go

Last night, Caroline's Rest & Destress yoga session was all about letting go. Letting go of any pain, any tension, any stress, any worry, any anxiety, any bad memories and any fear.

Letting go is hard for many of us and something that doesn't always come naturally or easily. We tend to cling onto things that we've heard or seen or experienced in the past, and this can cause a blockage of negativity that's not easy to release.

For those of you who weren't in the class last night, Caroline read out a verse during Savasana called She let go, which was written by Safire Rose.

We thought we would share the verse with you as it's so beautiful and relatable. We hope that you can come back to it, perhaps during times when you personally have something you want to let go of....

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 ‘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-Timer.

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 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.

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…
