“She stopped caring. Not apathy. Unattachment.”
Nancy said it perfectly. This from a post she wrote today concerning The Course and conversations we had last night. Not that I’m necessarily counting, but I think we are in Week 3 of me being me. Me being completely and unshakably happy. Content. Unattached. Completely blissed out in every single way possible. The best part is that I’m loving myself, appreciating myself, as I see myself; not as I think anyone else should love, appreciate or see me.
In a time when I would expect that everything around me is falling apart, I find that there is nothing to stress over. In a time when I would normally start shutting down, tucking myself into seclusive oblivion, I find myself excited in the unknown. I find myself right here, in the here and now, so in love with everything and everyone.
I’ve not done anything extravagant. I’ve not reached some sort of enlightenment. All I’ve done is let go. I let go of the need to know, of the need to control everything, of the need to attach myself to any particular outcome of any specific thing. I’ve let go of the idea that any of it matters.
The only thing that matters to me is the connection I feel, the centeredness I’m experiencing. The only thing that matters is right now and how I am so very, very grateful to be right here, right now. I know that the Universe is in every single situation, every interaction. I know that the Universe is everything and in everything; a part of everything. What is there to fear? What is there to control? What is there to attach to?
The one thing I do know is that in this right now I am completely supported. And when the next right now comes along, I will be supported then, too. It really is liberating to know that everything is perfect – and there’s nothing I have to do to let it be so, except to let it be.

Therein truly does lie the peace of God. Namaste.
