From the beginning we go through life accumulating. Little babies come into the world and are showered with gifts. Soon the “I want” and “Mine” stages settle in for the looooong ride. It’s all about grabbing on to stuff. So when do we learn about letting go?
There is so much baggage that we carry around every day that we could let go of. Just think about it for a minute. Old ideas and perceptions and judgements (most about ourselves…) get heavy and weigh us down. Ever watch a kid in a play area just grabbing and accumulating toys? They come to a point where they can’t carry anything more. Then they are faced with the situation that they can’t pick anything else up without dropping something. This dilemma happens to all of us all through our lives, it just isn’t as obvious that we have to be willing to let go of the what we’ve been holding onto in order to make room for something new. Anyone engaged in the creative knows you have to create space for new ideas to come in. You have to let go.
The whole universe is engaged in a big recycling program of composting and transformation. In nature and in life, nothing stays the same for long. We were never meant to hold on to anything for ever, so let go and let life happen.
