Let Go and Be Free

by Shervin on August 13, 2017

We all have heard that to let go and be free.

Sometimes we let go when we are tired of holding on and we realize that holding on only is creating more suffering.

Letting go does not mean giving up hope. It means acknowledging our current pain and suffering does not help our situation and the situation is beyond our control.

Letting go sometimes means accepting the “worst case” scenario and doing our best effort based on what we can change. This does not mean to think of worst case. This means we let go of worry and fear of the worst case happening constantly and focusing what we actually can do (being present).

Before we let go, sometimes we may feel that something within us is dying. After all we do not like to let go of a person we love or an ideal we have desired for so long.

As we let go, all of sudden peace and ease overcome us. All the burdens, all the stress, all the controls and all the responsibilities of holding on to something that we have a minimum control is released. With letting go we are no longer hostage to our worst case fears.
