In letting go, we give ourselves space to be. We can use the process of letting go to surrender to life. We can choose to see whatever it is we may be going through and let it be what it is.
There’s a process to life, and holding on while you are going through that process can make things more difficult for you. We hold on because we are in fear. We let go because we are in love. Letting go is an act of love.
To let go, we must know that everything will be okay. Everything will be taken care of. We surrender to the flow of life, and become able to let that flow take place.
It is a good idea to check in with yourself throughout the day and see whether you are holding on or letting go. You can feel it in the body when you do. When you let go you will feel more at ease, more at peace, and more open. Notice when you are in a space of openness and surrender, or holding on and clenched. Checking in with yourself as you do each activity throughout the day, or when you are about to do something new, you can see whether you are holding on or letting go.
In life, if we can remain open, we will be in a state of ease; not repressing anything, but letting the body, mind and emotions flow. Being in a state of openness will have us more engaged with any activity we do, or with any people we interact with.
Remaining in an open state will have you more able to embrace the moment. Letting go while being open can be a great state to be in. You will feel relaxed, at ease, and ready to meet any opportunity.
In the process of letting go, you may feel emotions come up. You may feel fear around letting go. A great practice that can be a meditation is to sit or lay down and simply let go. Let go as much as you can. Keep letting go until you feel that peace and ease. If you have emotions to work through, then feel those.
When you can simply let it all go, and just be, then you have found a great state to be in. Letting go can also mean letting go of the mind. Let it all be. There’s no need to rummage through your thoughts about anything. You don’t need to do that. You can simply let go of all that baggage and simply be!
I suggest trying this practice of letting go as often as you can, until it becomes a felt state of being. Let go of it all! Let go of all the noise, and all the commotion. Let it be. Let go into a new state of being, and you will soon find yourself surrender to life. This doesn’t mean that you will not be doing anything, but on the contrary, you will be doing things with a new state of ease and surrender.
Let go and let be.
