“Letting go is an act of surrender, and it is very different from what we’re usually taught to do, which is to control, fight, and hang on… surrendering brings peace, growth, and surprising new opportunities.” ~ Daphne Rose Kingma
It’s an ongoing process for sure. I find it starts in my mind. I think of how different my world would be, and would feel, by my letting go of things. people, etc. Being a student and praticioner of Feng Shui, I constantly think of change, I know the benefits of letting go of “stuff”, and I wrestle with the process on a daily basis. I can see how some people have made a profession of helping others to clear out their clutter! It’s just not an easy thing to do. But… It feels so much better once we do it! So why do we fight letting go?
“Hire men with a truck to haul your junk away. Trick yourself. Find an ally. Hold hands when you leap from the burning building. Pray for grace. Cry. Practice until you get good at it. Give things away. Throw things away. Sell everything you can. This is all just a show, anyway. We’re on our way to somewhere else. So why be bogged down with fourteen irrelevant people, two tons of useless junk, and a brain full of worry? When, really, you’re just practicing to be part of an intergalactic lightstream of Love. Don’t hang on. It’s hard to fly with bags of concrete tied to your feet. Let go. Let go. Let go.” ~ Daphne Rose Kingma
“Everything I have ever let go of has claw marks on it.” ~ Michael Peake
