Mindful Moment

Let It Go

by: Danna Faulds

Let go of the ways you thought life would unfold;

the holding of plans or dreams or expectations –

Let it all go. Save your strength to swim with the tide.

The choice to fight what is here before you now will only result

in struggle, fear, and desperate attempts to flee from the very energy

you long for. Let go.

Let it all go and flow with the grace that washes through your days

whether you receive it gently or with all your quills raised to defend

against invaders. Take this on faith; the mind may never find the

explanations that it seeks, but you will move forward nonetheless.

Let go, and the wave’s crest will carry you to unknown shores,

beyond your wildest dreams or destinations.

Let it all go and find the place of rest and peace, and certain transformation.

En Joy

“To enjoy life to the fullest, stop wanting anything. If something comes, let it come. If it goes, let it go. Just be contented with what you have. Even if something goes from what you have, it doesn’t matter. Accept it. True joy doesn’t come from anywhere. Nothing brings you joy. No person brings you joy. You yourself are joyful always. This is enJOYment. Depend on nothing, because nothing from outside can make you joyful.”

~From A Thought for Each Day, The Golden Present by Sri Swami Satchidananda

A Perspective on Letting Go

Forgiveness and the release of the past open the creative flow of life, supporting all levels of mind, heart, body, emotion, and spirit.  This energy flow determines the state of our health, our desire to create and procreate, our willingness to develop our gifts, and how we use or deny the life force that we are given as human beings. . . by choosing to let go of the past, our fears, and our negative patterns or reactions to life, we are suddenly funded with a resurgence of life force, which propels
us into a newfound way of being and a very different
way of understanding the world.
