“Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.”
― Eckhart Tolle,
A New Earth:
Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose
When I first saw this it really touched me. I am struggling right now with letting go of my mind, my thoughts, the lies, the illusions, basically everything I thought to be real.
9:30 am I grab that first beer
Empty stomach, empty soul
The mind machine clogged up
Trying to make sense
Of that which has no sense
Anger raging through me
Sorrow chasing it down
Mourning in full force
For losing what was not there
In the first place
10:30 am I grab that third beer
Drunk is setting in
A fabricated lifetime of
Tears parading down my cheeks
A cosmic hurt in my heart
That isn’t there and never was
It has now been 5 months since my rebirth, since my life changed, since I truly became open to changing, since I became truly aquainted with Spirit, Mother Earth and the Universe, since I realized I am a Spiritual Being having a Human experience.
I learn something new every day, or maybe I am just really accepting what I already know. I felt such a huge change in my life after the rebirth and I thought I was on easy street. I realize know how silly that thought was because I have certainly had quite a few struggles in the last 5 months.
I know that every struggle is important and is needed for my growth. Recently I feel like I am coming out of the fog. I thought I came out of the fog before but maybe the fog just got thiner. Even after the rebirth, I still spent a lot of time in my head. I spent a lot of energy thinking about the past and the future.
I am so blessed to constantly find some terrific, eye-opening, just what I needed, posts on Facebook. Here is another one from Facebook User Soulful Intentions – Food For Thought:
Emotions are not a weakness or enemy but a part of the cleansing process. Recognize their importance in your soul expansion by feeling them fully and then letting them go.
” Emotions are not our enemy, they give us clues as to what we need to work on and are assurance that progress is being made”
I absolutely have issues with this. For some reason as I began this new path and opened myself up to Spirit, I also apparently planted some silly notions about what it means to be Spiritually open.
