How to let it go.

How to let it go.

You know sometimes I used to wonder that when I have come on the path of spirituality, daily meditations, yoga along with breathing exercises would bring so much peace and calmness to me. But strange as it seemed, the memories of the past events would sometimes still come back to haunt me. Add to that the experiences or moments that had made me feel at unease would be crossing my mind again and again, uninterrupted. Much difficult it was for me to gather the courage that would help me in erasing it from the consciousness for it is certainly not easy as one,two,three owning to the fact that on the path of spirituality your consciousness expands and does not gets diminished, certainly. Good or bad,present or past the memories may have been they are all alike, only the intensity of their impact and perception about their negative consequences changes.

To jump you must take a leap,likewise for the past impressions to be diminished they must transcend from your mind to your expanding consciousness which does not equate them with a prejudice but accepts it as it is. What one needs at this juncture is faith, faith in the divine, a divinity that binds us together and makes our being possible. Have the knowledge that things will be better for the sun sets only to rise again. Don’t be bothered by the memories of the past nor blame yourself for the things you did or others for what they did to you. It was all a part of the destiny which has rightly placed you where you are now. A sapling braves the roughest of weather only to blossom and become a tree with much to give to all. In the same way you must just go with the flow and let it all go. Your greatest weapon would be to serve without any intention or expectations but only with a commitment for the greater betterment of all. It brings peace and bliss for you are not asking anything in return, the act of a wise. An arrow to be released needs to be pulled back, in the same way for the sorrow to go it needs to be pulled to the consciousness so that it can be released from the cocoon of perpetuity. Just be an observers to the changing thoughts and experience the beauty of mind. The best way to battle the mind is not to battle at all but to be a witness to its play. Only then will one be able to let it all go.

  1. My take on this would be, let the past haunt you. It has to haunt you sometime or the other. But don’t let it control you. Whatever happened in the past is sad, it does not let you live peacefully when you get involved in it. Be detached from it. See it as a game. Take it as a game. Face it as a game. How do you Play a game? Do you sit and cry when you lose something while playing? Do you keep thinking about it forever when you lose and your friends win?
