Not long ago I had an epiphany.
I really started to feel what it means to let go of something consciously.
You are not holding it back trying to forget about it. You are not avoiding the feeling. You are not dwelling on it either. It’s something else.
So much has been written about it already but again you have to see (and feel) for yourself to really get it.
How to hijack it? How to learn it already? How to reach that supposed next level?
It seems like we are always in need of progressing, evolving (which is great) at hyperspeed (which is great too). But what if trying too hard and constantly looking for more or faster becomes a flaw? What if the process itself of becoming ourselves, grounding ourselves, living better leads us to more stress instead of making our life easier?
Feeling good and happy is what most of us are looking for isn’t it?
How do we not forget that in our search for embodying so much goodness?
Answer lies most likely in the present moment. Again.
Everything you are looking for is already here.
Everything you long for is already here.
Look at your goals and dreams and thank them for lighting your path and giving your directions.
Thank yourself, your body, your mind and your heart for reminding you of what is important at each moment.
The now. Just the Now.
Our life is a succession of Now.
Aim for a future.
Strengthen your arm.
And Fire away trusting that Now is exactly what you need.
You do not have to do anything else but living the Now.
You only have to make a decision Now. To smile Now. To feel good Now.
Build a happy life by feeling good Now. It’s the only way to look back and see the succession of Happy Nows.
So the answer is in you.
Let go not because you want to let go (which you want of course but your intention isn’t there) but because it’s no longer a part of you. It is obvious to you that you do not need it anymore.
How to get there????
Find this mushin place, this no mind place.
Find it in meditation. Find it in breathing. Find it in mindful moment. Find it in happy moment. Find it in sad moment. Find it outside. Find it inside. Find it exercising. Find it cooking. Find it falling asleep. Find it waking up.
Find your innner peace. Feel it. Find it as many times as you need and want.
Make a habit of being in this no mind state.
Only then can you feel and see things as they are. Just things.
Only then can you detach yourself from your emotional reaction.
Only then can you decide in peace.
Only then can you build a serene life.
One moment at a time <3
