Letting Go

By Carol Dorman

Do you feel less than you'd like to? Less happy, less confident,

less "everything" than others? Sometimes your head seems just

above the water even though the rope you're holding is tight in

your hands. Perhaps you're holding on when you should be letting go.

Letting go can be one of the most difficult things we ever have

to do. It can also be one of the most liberating. Opening your

hand to let the butterfly fly away - that jewel-like creature we

wish we could hold forever - means its cycle of life can

continue, uninterrupted. The reward? Jewels returned to us

tenfold, year after year, as we walk through a garden.

Some of my darkest times involve holding on to things. Past

mistakes which I refused to let fade from the "Open" file in my

memory. The job I chose to leave behind in which I could have

achieved so much more. The child who stayed in my body for just a few months before dying. People who have hurt me and people I've hurt. So many things. I have discovered, however, that letting go of just one thing at a time can bring peace and healing.

Now, letting go doesn't mean forgetting. We can't forget the

wrong decisions we've made in our lives, the loss of a loved one,

ending of relationships as well as the myriad of emotions

attached to each - and we shouldn't. What we can do, however,

is let them go. Release them from the forefront of our mind where we constantly call on them and, instead, set them free to nestle into a soft, sleepy recess in our heart. Always there to be

reflected upon when needed, their essences entwined with our

being and gently helping to create who we are.

We are all products of our past - good or bad - but we should

never be victims of it. Regret, repent, grieve, learn from and

then...let go.

Remember the rope, held tight in your hands? Instead of being the only thing keeping your head above water, it may be the thing

keeping ONLY your head above water. Is it holding you up or

dragging you down? Let go of it and float on your back for a

while. Close your eyes and drift with the gentle tide as it carries you onto the beach, safe and well.

Let go.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
