He let go of the committee of indecision within him. He let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, he just let go.
He didn’t ask anyone for advice. He didn’t read a book on how to let go. He didn’t search the scriptures. He just let go.
He let go of all of the memories that held him back. He let go of all of the anxiety that kept him from moving forward. He let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do things just right.
He didn’t promise to let go. He didn’t journal about it. He didn’t write the projected date in his day-timer. He made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. He didn’t check the weather report or read his daily horoscope. He just let go.
He didn’t analyze whether he should let go. He didn’t call his friends to discuss the matter. He didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. He didn’t call the prayer line. He didn’t utter one word. He just let go.
No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked him or praised him. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, he 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, he let it all be. Rest in peace Dan, and may the sun and the moon shine for you forevermore.
Dad, John, Frank, and Grandma
