Letting go is a spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical process, a
sometimes mysterious metaphysical process of releasing to God and the
Universe that which we are clinging to so tightly.
We let go of our grasp on people, outcomes, ideas, feelings, wants,
needs, desires – everything. Yes, it’s important to acknowledge and
accept what we want and what we want to happen. But it’s equally
important to follow through by letting go. Letting go is the action
part of faith. It is a behavior that gives God and the Universe
permission to send us what we’re meant to have.
Letting go means we acknowledge that hanging on so tightly isn’t
helping to solve the problem, change the person, or get the outcome we
desire. It isn’t helping us. In fact, we learn that hanging on often
blocks us from getting what we want and need. Who are we to say
that things aren’t happening exactly as they need to happen?
There is magic in letting go. Sometimes we get what we want soon after
we let go. Sometimes it takes longer. Sometimes the specific outcome we
desire doesn’t happen. Something better does.
Letting go sets us free and connects us to our Source. Letting go
creates the optimum environment for the best possible outcomes and
Today, I will relax. I will let go of that which is upsetting me the
most. I will trust that by letting go, I have started the wheels in
motion for things to work out in the best possible way.
Remember, your inner world reflects your outer world. If you believe
you are not enough, you will validate that belief and create the
reality that you don’t have enough. On the other hand, if you believe
your are plenty, you will validate that believe and create plenty of
abundance. Why? because ‘plenty’ will be your root, which will then
become your natural way of being.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
Notice the acts of kindness other people do rather that their
wrongdoing. This is how the loving presence views you. We are all good,
decent, loving souls who occasionally get lost.
Generally speaking, we regard discomfort in any form as bad news. But
for practitioners or spiritual warriors – people who have a certain
hunger to know what is true – feelings like disappointment,
embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear,
instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach
us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and
lean in, when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like
messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re
stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s
with us wherever we are.
Our life experience is a reflection of our consciousness. If we find we
are faced with someone who is judgmental and wants their own way, like
it or not, we must look for those same qualities in ourselves. If we
want to change our life experience we must change ourselves. Life is a
mirror. It smiles back to us when we smile and frowns back at us when
The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting
our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their
beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for
growth… if we look honestly at our relationships we can see so much
about how we have created them.
People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the
sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light within.
Distancing others does not bring detachment, but its opposite. Only
when you let others into your heart do you become capable of releasing
The spiritual student is often seeking to transform, overcome, or slay
the ego when all that is necessary is to simply abandon it. This
requires the development of trust, faith, and confidence in the Reality
of God. When the seeking for gain is abandoned, life becomes relatively
effortless and peaceful.

Don’t waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
As you learn how to do and then drop all judgment of that doing, you will find the golden path to your own salvation.
It is nice to know that, to a great extent, you can do it yourself. And
if you don’t know how to do it now, then you will evolve to where you
do know how.
It’s nice to know that there are infinite chances.
And it’s nice to know that you get to create for yourself those things that you want.
John-Roger, The Way Out Book
Gratitude is one of the sweet shortcuts to finding peace of mind and
happiness inside. No matter what’s going on outside, there’s always
something we can be grateful for.
Barry Neil Kaufman
Make me sweet again, Fragrant and fresh and wild, And thankful for any small event.
