They said, “Letting go is accepting God’s renewal in my life.”
It was one of those moments where I just stopped and got chills up and down my spine. Like, real, bona fide chills.
What an amazing perspective. In this statement they summed up was I was trying to express, but it just came right out of them. Now, if you are flustered with the word God, substitute it for Divine, Buddha, Krishna, Allah, Source, Uni-verse, etc. Don’t get caught up in the name – hear this message.
What a great perspective. In the Christian Gospels Christ says, “I make all things new.” I love this aspect of The Divine. I believe that The Divine does specialize in redemption and forgiveness. Well, sort of. Because I believe that we are Loved perfectly by The Divine, so it’s impossible for us to be forgiven by The Divine because It never stopped Loving us. It is the forgiveness of ourselves and others that we seek.
And, in accepting that we are Loved perfectly, we can begin to see all moments in our lives as teachable moments. When we remove the judgment we place on events and instead see the lesson – we begin to loosen ourselves from the fog of emotion and step into GROWTH. Emotions teach us, but getting the lesson is what saves us.
You see, the idea that you were always and will always be Loved means that it is only us that hold ourselves back from renewal. The Uni-verse is there waiting for us to let go of whatever is holding us back, not because we are to be punished, but because we are to be redeemed and renewed.
It’s kind of like putting up and sitting under an umbrella at the beach on a sunny day and complaining that you aren’t getting tanned. The sun shines, but to get what you want, you must step out into the light – and in doing so you make risk getting burned. But that’s how life works.
So consider that letting go is GRACE. And that the fear you have of letting go of whatever you feel is toxic or unhealthy in your life won’t make life worse, but will instead guide you towards renewal.
The sun is shining – are you ready to step out into the light?
