The art of letting go

Always I wait to write a blog till an inspiration will come. I was wondering what I am going to write about this month. And here it is.

Few days ago I was very much involved emotionally in helping and supporting my friend to get a job which fits exactly what she loves to do. The goal was on the horizon, visible, you could almost touch it …

I had a very vivid image in my mind of her achieving that goal and having a job which will bring her a satisfaction. I was so sure that this was an ideal match, I could feel it. Her goal and that job. In a short time some big obstacles showed up and my friend felt that there was no other way, but to change the course of her journey for now; to put everything about that goal aside, for later …

I tried to suggest different options, solutions, thinking out of the box, and wanting badly for her to succeed. I just couldn’t understand why she decided to not pursue that goal; especially that she was far on her way to achieve it. Almost there …

At first, I didn’t see it, as nobody can see the whole picture better than the person whose that journey is. I meditated on it and suddenly it hit me. There is nothing wrong with her decision. It is me who has to “let it go”. It was my vision, not hers and it was me who felt that timing was good, not her. I could almost hear: “Let it go”.

I am thankful for that lesson. We go through our life believing that what we see is a reality, but the truth is that it is our reality, not somebody else. By learning the art of letting go, we accept that there can be other way, other path to choose, in our or somebody’s journey.

I would like to talk today about the power of our mind not as us to be able to make wondrous scientific discoveries or medical achievements, but our mind as a part of us, a gift which was given to us to use wisely.

There are two parts to it – conscious and subconscious mind. We think that conscious mind is mainly used by us and subconscious mind is somewhere there as an insignificant part playing a minor role. But it is an opposite; conscious mind is about 7-10% and the rest of it is subconscious mind suppressed and pushed into insignificance. Or so we think.

A lot of times we want to achieve something and we decide: “I am going to do it.” And we Continue reading
