The Power of Letting Go!

There is a great power in letting go that most people aren’t aware of, we tend to think of it as losing  because we were made to believe that our worth is measured by how much is in our pockets , closets and houses.

We forgot that the real worth of a person isn’t in how many things he collects around him/her however, it is in what he/she can do to others, and that is the real richness : that of experiences, living and sharing

1. In Love : Liberate. 

” I am grateful to be have been loved, and to be loved now , and to be able to love, because love liberates, it doesn’t just hold, that’s ego. Love liberates ” – Dr Maya Angelou.

2. In possessions: make a difference between what you need and what you want.

“Don’t let the clothes you wear be the most expensive thing about you, so you don’t find yourself cheaper than what you wear “- Khalil jibran

How many of you have collected things they don’t need just to make themselves feel better and ideal and ended up getting disinterested of them after a couple of months because they became out of trend? why did our self-image got narrowed to these things we own? we end up piling up stuff endlessly without realising the damage you are making to your environment by being too greedy and self-centred. Have you ever questioned yourself why that feeling of self-importance faded with the change of seasons and trends.
3. In food: a happy stomach is not a full stomach
Think of what you put into your digestive system to let it function happily and effectively! There is a thin line between having indigestion and having a satisfying meal. An enjoyed needed amount is always healthier than a rushed swallowed meal. Give your digestive system space and time to function properly, and you’ll be able to notice the change!

4. In social relationships: Make a space for diversity!

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.” ― Khalil Gibran

5. In hardships: face it, understand it, forgive , and move on!
We all face hard moments in our lives when we feel wronged or doing wrong to someone.
It’s important to face it, to be able to learn from it, and it’s important to forgive oneself and others to be able to move on and start over!

6. In your everyday life: are you trapped between the past and the future? or do you hear the birds singing?
