There’s a lot of joy in a great meal. There’s also a lot of freedom knowing that even if we don’t get the great meal we will enjoy ourselves.
It’s great getting what we want. There’s freedom in knowing that we will be okay even if we don’t get what we want.
We know that letting go is good for us. But we don’t really know how to do it. I don’t know any answer except that sometimes letting go works out and other times it doesn’t. When it does there are different shades of it: letting go reluctantly, with our brain but not our heart and then there’s fully-hearted letting go which truly feels like freedom. When is the last time you felt like that? What led up to it? For me it was yesterday, when lots of clutter I had held on to for years suddenly ceased to be important. Like most changes, the whole process was anything but sudden. But once you are ready you know it. I love the freedom of empty space. I want more of it. What about you?
