Learn to let go

Let go,’ two simple words, easy to understand, should be easy to practise as well, I thought smugly. Yet, from my own personal experience, I have found it difficult to practise and integrate. It is easier to believe that things happen to us, rather than that we attract them. Taking responsibility for circumstances
in our life, which may be necessary for our spiritual growth, requires letting
go of our own story line, our perception of the issue, and instead, looking at it objec-tively. But that requires us to change, which we tend to resist. Depending on your current life situation, ‘let go,’ can imply many different things. The simplest and most widely applicable meaning would be to stop expecting people to behave as we want them to. In other words, we need to drop the word ‘should’ from our vocabulary.

Letting go implies detachment and patience, the capacity to allow matters to resolve and evolve in their natural course of time. It is non-judgmental acceptance of the situation at the moment. Acceptance of your own limitations and imperfections is the first big step. Whether it is your illnesses, being kicked out of your job, or a stressful relationship that you cannot resolve, you will have to let people and things be as they are at the moment, however much you may wish to change them. Acceptance does not mean inaction. Acceptance indicates that you think constructively to manage the issue. Acceptance means that you have a different starting point for the race of life.
