to therapies to change what Is.
Although I walked many paths of life several times already, that of letting go seems to be the road that is the most hurtful. We often get these lessons very early in life, some earlier than others, but we certainly will Receive them… And just as we think we digested the gist (?), they will come back, in another outfit, another form, another level. Then it will start materializing and acts upon all layers of attachment. Be it a member of the family, a friend or a relative, it cuts, slashes through the heart and leaves back Traces. Traces that are clearly obvious for others. It is our task to decide which kind of traces we want to leave behind.
By making choices on surrounding features we create possibilities in which we will become terribly lonesome or either very rich. We cannot see that many of these things to which we are devoted only stay with us if we in actual fact are able to release them. During those hurtful moments we cannot see that it would be much better to let them Be as they Are. Often it feels like it is outside of Your Will, although in reality it is The Path.
Let me sketch an example.
But not for long. Give man enough disappointments and he will forget what it was he came here for. Many expectations are not fulfilled and he walks in ignorance and pain. That is the way Man is created.
When my son got fifteen and started to explore boundaries that stood square against my own system of standards and values, he decided to live with his father. I almost suffocated. Here I was... As if All Life was pulled out of me. He already got so much pain and in my heart I knew that it would become even worse. And I, I wasn’t able to protect my child against this… What kind of mother was I who couldn’t protect her child against the pain and sorrow that was to come…?
Things moved, his room became more bare
each day, as was the case with my heart. With a bleeding heart I cleaned
up his room and with each stroke while washing the windowpanes I visualized
looking with his eyes and wished he could see the world as it Is…That
what ever he should need to See, would come to him in a clear way.
Because Clarity, does contain pain.
And that I AM being, saw, my child is
not My Child. He is not ‘mine”, and just like me, does not like to
be ‘of someone’. For he, just like me, belongs to many, but I AM only
mine. He is an individual, He is a Soul on a journey, a Soul on it’s
Way, just like me. He has the right to Experience Life the way he
Through this In-Sight, I was able to Let
him Go. I was able to see my own inner processes and saw how much
of this wasn’t revolving around him, but around me, about what I Wanted,
about my patterns of expectation of his Life, about satisfying my
During that period I learned a lot, but above all I Understood that by letting him Be, and Releasing him In Love, he was Always able to stay who he really Is… Furthermore I learned that by the choices he made, that I related to pain, he could not have given me a more precious gift. He taught me how to look deeper down inside of MySelf, he taught me the Power of the Now, he gave me Knowledge-of-Self…
We both have known years of stormy weather,
spoken languages that we both didn’t understand, but we always Let
each other Be who we are and lo…
Love, Liberates, Sets Free; Let it Be
and Let it Live and Inspire.
Okay, and now on to the next lesson.
Walk Tall and Softly
