Don’t let go; Let it be
Letting go assumes you were holding on
But nothing in this life is really ever grasped
Everything, everyone Is fleeting
Let it be what it is
And all it ever was
All it will ever be
Trust. The. Flow.
The most common phrase I heard or seen in meme’s repeatedly in 2015 was those three majestic word, “Let it go!” I really thought about the phrase and what it means when I got a chance to unplug this weekend. I realized while meditating that to let go of something has a bad and very negative stigma to it. It echoes loss and failure.
With such a negative connotation attached to letting go, there is no question why people continue holding on. It’s a painful thing to do, letting something go, be it yourself, others, experiences or things. What I found to be more real and a much more positive outlook, instead of letting it go, let it be!
Let it be. It is not a passive stance at all, but it is superior, it is the ultimate form of acceptance.
Don’t try to alter what a thing is, look with your whole heart and accept it. If it does not serve your higher purpose let it be, we can never really let go of things, people, places or experiences that have shaped us, we wear them and they are a part of us. Don’t let it go, let it motivate, inspire and be a catalyst for your self- growth.
Trust the journey. Every person, place, thing, experience is all part of your becoming. You are a mosaic of fragments of every experience you collected on your journey.
Don’t let it go
Let it be
