“Acceptance is the long sigh of the soul.”
Sarah Ban Breathnach
I could see angel lights flashing around him in the dark night;
and the emerald green haze that I knew to be the presence of Archangel Raphael, the supreme healer. As I lay on the floor at the end of his bed, with tears streaming down my face, I remember saying, ”I know he is surrounded by love….I know you are with him, angels….but I don’t want to say goodbye to my boy….please…I need him here in the physical….please, don’t take him home yet.”
And then, at some point; I let go. I accepted what was,
not what might be coming…or what might not.
I was at the bottom, and there was nowhere to go and nothing I could do but be still. And in this stillness and acceptance, surrender came. Not with a light-bulb realization. Just in the feeling of numbness, nothingness, and release. I had nothing left. No fight. No struggle. No “why?” Just silence and my breathing. And then a warm presence enfolded me. It was as close as my own breath and seemingly a part of me too, a warmth made of pure love. My soul was being held and I let it be.
I let go.
Surrender is far from giving up. It is allowing “what is” to simply “be”. It is the letting go of all resistance, of yearning for an alternative. It is as if something is released, and we instantly become one with all. Timeless. Endless. United. No beginning and no end. And we realize we are a sacred player in a cosmic dance of perfection.
We are energy entwined in a dance of love without separation without flaw like swirling weightless blossoms on the wind carried by the Divine to another place, another form, another perfection.
“It is what it is.”
Embracing these words means we become free. We are not without grief or pain, but we are able to feel these things without letting them taint the precious moments. We no longer rob ourselves of the small miracles which exist in every moment, even in the seemingly mundane events. Life becomes just the moment. Everything stops except awareness and gratitude for another “now”.
Life is a privilege. And every moment is a miracle.
I accept and surrender to what is.
I am one with all in a cosmic dance of love.
