What If You Just Let Go?

“Let go… How would your life be different if you learned to let go of things that have already let go of you? From relationships long gone, to old grudges, to regrets, to all the ‘could’ve’ and ‘should’ve,’ to the dead friendships you still hang on to… Free yourself from the burden of a past you cannot change.”

  1. Great one Mrs Zen
    Certainly a goal to strive for. But the journey may take a lifetime. Maybe not. I’ll keep you in the loop on my progress on this one. 😉
    Much love, CC

  2. You said it perfectly CC. Easy to say, ‘letting go’, yet sometimes it’s incredibly challenging to do. For me letting go isn’t something I do once either, I let go, it comes back and I let go again. Work in progress. 🍂🍂🍂

    Beautifully said by Steve Maraboli….the big question is: how to let go? Can you do anything to let go?

    It was a couple of years ago that I read a text written by Yoginâm Abbahjí about Letting go in which I found the answer to that question.

    At that time I experienced some troubles in life that I was really preoccupied with. Thoughts about it turning round in circles all the time. And I wasn’t able to stop it.

    Until I read this text…..

    “Letting go is embracing it”

    So I imagined that I embraced the whole situation, including all people involved, all my reactions to it, myself, the places where it happened. And I embraced it even longer. And longer. I embraced it as long as was necessary to feel it started to melt away. And nothing was left.

    The next day I met the same people again….and there was no problem at all anymore!

    Will you let me know whether this works for you as well?

    • Your words and technique are beautiful! What a wonderful mindfulness technique. Very powerful stuff. Whatever the method, if it allows you to let go, surrender and find peace, then it’s a winner. Thank you so much for sharing. I’m going to research Yoginâm Abbahjí.
