Just Letting Go
Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.
Harold B. Melchart
Sometimes when things donâ€™t go the way I want, rather than sitting back and letting things go their own way, I start pushing and shoving and trying to make things happen the way I want… Can you relate to this one? Whether itâ€™s something at work, or at home, or wherever, we start getting forceful and insisting on things going a certain way (our way)… even when it is obvious (at least to others) that things are not going that way at all.
When we find ourselves going against the current, or when we find that everything is going wrong in our life, we need to stop and ask ourselves what is really going on. Are we standing on the high wire, unwilling to trust and let go. Is the fear of the future so captivating that we are unwilling to trust that something better is always waiting around the corner, if we will only take the first step. We may be headed in the wrong direction and the Universe is trying to “straighten us out” by sending all kinds of challenges…
We need to pay attention to the signals in our life. They are constantly there… When something is a struggle, there is a message there… Perhaps we need to handle the situation differently, perhaps we’re at the wrong place at the wrong time, or the right place at the wrong time… Perhaps we need to change direction… A struggle or any challenge always comes with a gift — a message, a lesson, a blessing.
Letting go means trusting that the process of life is always in balance and that whatever the outcome, it will be for the best. Active let-go, means following oneâ€™s inner wisdom (or intuition) and doing what feels right, while trusting that whatever action one takes will bring us to a solution… whatever that may be.
These are my thoughts, please have your say
