Letting Go

Thank you Christine for placing this lovely quote in my path today.

“Letting go means just what it says. It’s an invitation to cease clinging to anything — whether it be an idea, a thing, an event, a particular time, or view, or desire.

It is a conscious decision to release with full acceptance into the stream of present moments as they are unfolding.

To let go means to give up coercing, resisting, or struggling, in exchange for something more powerful and wholesome –

which comes out of allowing things to be as they are without getting caught up in your attraction to or rejection of them, in the intrinsic stickiness of wanting, of liking and disliking”

  1. Im pleased I shared this Laurel; it seems to have struck a chord with quite a few people. I saw the quote the other day and remembered I actually have the book it came from. But I havent read it yet, so a wake up call for me! 😊
