Let it be

Again and again last night: when pain and depression came, there was this Loving Voice asking, “and could you just let that be as it is – for now?”

Each time the answer was yes, release came.

I realized how much I have struggled to let it be-and judged myself instantly when I could not: my whole story depends on judgment.

Now  – oh wonder: -the answers came from a place that I did not control at all – and I was surprised watching the process.

What a gift.

Maybe there is somebody who does not know that “Mother Mary” in the text is John’s mother.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
