Let it go and let it be . . .

A photo I clicked at sunrise ๐Ÿ™‚

Less than 48 hours back I was having a throwback moment writing an email to myself after a meditation (I hadn’t planned what I was going to write, I just went with the flow) recalling some funny blooper moments I have had in 2013. I went to the park early in the morning to get some fresh air and exercise, but my mind was preoccupied with thoughts and the work out that I planned for 45 minutes, came to a screeching halt in just 20 minutes as I just couldn’t concentrate! I do a lot of self-talk when no one’s around (I know it sounds silly ๐Ÿ˜› ) and I caught myself being gloomy rather thanย reminiscing.

I came home and rather than heading straight for the shower, I found a beautiful guided meditation on YouTube by The Honest Guys which I played for myself. Towards the end of the next 20 minutes, I was ALL SMILES ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I felt so happy from within that I was searching for craft supplies (‘cuz I love to make art when I’m elated). I had run out of craft paper and hence I decided to WRITE in my e-Journal – an email to myself.

I spent the next 45 minutes enjoying every word I was writing – it wasn’t me who was writing, it was the divine peaceful energy that was flowing within me at the moment which was doing the work, my fingers just glided softly and gently over the keys. Nostalgia was so much fun and I was laughing, recollecting my fond and cherished memories. After I hit the send button, I was a completely different person than last evening. I was so much more jovial and rejuvenated, I appreciated my beautiful life and I came from loving and abundant thoughts. I was grateful and tranquil. I was living IN THE MOMENT and was absorbing the beauty and happiness of everything until that point in time. I wrote such a long essay that I was actually laughing at my own self. And I firmly know, it wasn’t me who wrote it; I was just a channel or a medium. The words flowed in from a connection with the higher power.

I shampooed my hair and picked up ALL NEW bright beautiful clothes from my wardrobe. Looking good has a unique charm to make you feel happy from the outside in. With spring in my feet, I went on my day which was super loaded; but it just went on as a breeze of cool air ๐Ÿ™‚

When I came home that evening, famished and starving – I couldn’t even wait for the food I just took out from the freezer to come down to room temperature, so I picked up a delicious green apple (I love them so much more than red apples โค ), a banana, 2 tomatoes and some nuts for dinner. I was reflecting on my day and what struck a chord with me was the fact that after so many days, I LET IT GO AND LET THINGS BE – AS THEY WERE.

I accepted the present – at its face value and found my way to find peace and happiness in the moment. I did NOT make my happiness conditional on an outcome or a future course of action. I LET IT BE. There was total acceptance. Instead of trying to rectify or change the present reality, I was okay with how it was and my acceptance of the situation wasn’t forceful, it was natural. I was thankful for everything I had in life and was not focused on lack or my wants.ย 

Being detached from my desires allowed me to be happy in the moment. I knew that the Universe had my back ๐Ÿ™‚

I know what it means to be in a state of restlessness, impatience, doubt, worry, fear, stress and anxiety. But I also know how to harness the power of trust and let go of the fear.ย One of my friends told me the below statement years back and it is still crisp in my memory.

Patience and faith are skills that we cultivate by practice,ย practice and moreย practice (Thank you, Erika for your DKQ – I am your disciple for life โค ).

What matters is how calm you can keep your mind even in the face of the worst possible adversity.


When we truly let things be as they are – a 100% surrender and acceptance with a sense of peace, love and joy; and let go of our wants, desires, impatience and restlessness – MIRACLES MANIFEST. I have seen my miracle manifest in less than 24 hours! Why don’t you give it a shot!?

Instead of focusing on expectations, shift your focus to appreciation and life will be a manna from heaven

    • Hello Sohier, thank you for being the first one to leave me your beautiful encouraging words. I love some of the arabic words like ‘manna’ and ‘dua’. They are so simple, yet powerful. You, my friend are my manna from God.
      Love โค and Smiles ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Wow, Himali. I think you are experiencing the highest level of awareness. Being completely in the moment and aware of that moment makes that moment a timeless bubble. Within that bubble, nothing can disturb that absolute peace and joy. It is difficult to describe that feeling of total gratitude and awareness of life and its meaning. It is amazing how you are able to convey this feeling with your lines. You manage to draw the reader into that bubble or actually lead his into his own bubble. The funny thing is that we realize that actually we leave a bubble (of restrictions and doubts) and enter a world of endlessness. This is so inspiring. Thank you very much, Himali. You made my evening.
    Aren’t we all teachers AND students… thank you for what you made me see today, dear friend ๐Ÿ’–
