This is an article which has taken some time for me to write. It’s about letting go!
In fact, it’s not one article it is going to be one article in three parts…maybe more? I’m going to write them over the course of a number of weeks (life permitting) and I would really love for you to feedback and reflect on your experience, here on my blog site, by return. I don’t mind if you do it anonymously, or whether you wish to print your name. Why in three parts or more?... Because it will give us all time to have reflect and then we come back to share and see where the subject leads us.
The overall topic will be about letting ‘it’, that being (things, feelings, experiences) go; and thus letting it (being, the second sense of the term) happen. Thus, meaning, seeing where ‘matters’ be they emotions, places or experiences) takes you. By this, I mean where that ‘letting go’ experience leads you (us).
I could give you many examples from several experiences that have resulted in some of the best spiritually evolving experiences, I have had happen. But, one theme that would seem to underlie every outcome is that, one can only see the results from start to outcome, retrospectively.
Yes, this may seem obvious, but the ‘letting go part’ is the hardest part and the ‘faith’ part (in whatever we chose to term the origins of our experiences), comes with that.
Okay, I’ll chose a more familiar topic no doubt with most of us and that’s– the workplace.
Working for 10 years at a higher education establishment. Boy, was that an experience and did I come across a wide variety of “out there” characters! Right across the spectrum.
Desperately trying to STOP something that was happening to me for the first time, redundancy. By separately talking myself into applying for ANY job in the institution. Just so as to hold down a job and avoid unemployment regardless of my growing disability and deteriorating health, which was the cause of this being made redundant business.
Multiple losses, fear, anxiety and sadness, betrayal, vulnerable. no purpose!
Let go, let God (the universe), go with the flow - have faith, just relax.
Being in the best possible position to experience the some of the greatest and significant losses to come.
Sometimes....the best thing that can happen to you can come in the form of your worst nightmare!
I wait to hear your take on the above...see you soon.
