From the notebook : November 4, 2013
Here in Sardinia, in these last months, many times I found myself sitting on ancient rocks, observing the sea, remembering some words from my Teacher Mervyn.
“We are terrified of letting go, terrified of living
Since learning to live is learning to let go
Let go, Let go, Let go, or you will hurt.”
An extra effort is needed to let go of ‘things’ that can create lower energy and a state of heaviness.
We are so used of living with heavy garments, covering what in its essence wants to be ‘naked’ at the Light of the Sun!
Yes, it is so ‘strange’ for us to go around ‘naked’, to just Be, to live from the Heart, in the simplicity of its miracle, to just Be and live expanding in Love.
I have Faith that each moment comes with opportunities that are leading us to expand more in freedom, like the Ocean, like the Skies. Often the same play is repeating itself until we will be able to see more. When we are able to keep the state of Presence, living as more as possible in the lightness of the Now where everything IS, we will be guided to use the right tools and to finally cut those cords that are not allowing the letting go of things.
That ‘letting go‘ is one of the keys that can open many doors.
Sometimes, if something related to the past or future is showing itself in the theater of the mind, I acknowledge it… I breathe… I see what I have still to learn and then I embrace it with Acceptance and Compassion. I Forgive myself and others. I drink from the chalice of Peace. With Humility I allow the letting go and the flow in the infinite Light of the Whole.
At times it is not easy with all of them, some stay longer creating friction and pain and yet…
learning to live is learning to let go!
We are energy in constant flow and when we are holding ‘things’ we are just giving attention to the mind and that mechanical part of us. More we hold of things and more energy will be stuck, stagnating, there will be no flow and opening for all other possibilities that are Here Now for Us.
I am verifying that it is not easy to keeping letting go and I am observing that at times there is a sort of ‘friction in between cells’ almost felt at the heart level and yet that friction is felt and lasting less and less as the practice goes on.
Yes, Let Go and Live.
And when the letting go happens, there is the opening of a space for stillness, silence, Peace, Love and in that state the old dies and something new is born, like in the shore… like with the waves that come and go… returning to the ocean.
And there is understanding, opening, a sense of circulation of Light and Love inside the veins… inside the cells… inside the heart.
Everything becomes lighter…
