Weâ€™re basically all in the stream of life being carried effortlessly towards our goal, but most of us are busy kicking and screaming and trying to swim against the current and grab onto every rock we see and we get really beat up by life because of that….
You donâ€™t have to bang into every obstacle along the path. The more you let go, the more you naturally flow around and through the supposed opposition to greater awareness or greater freedom or greater abundance.
And so, it makes it a lot more fun too.
And the other thing is that a lot of people donâ€™t realize is that a lot of us have turned freedom, or unity or whatever you want to call it, into an object.
And in my experience, itâ€™s not something that you can possess. It is the ultimate subject. Itâ€™s that which you are and you donâ€™t need to hold onto yourself because you canâ€™t lose that essence of who you are. Itâ€™s always there. ….
So, what happens is, as you let go, everything gets better and the tendency is when we are feeling good is because we come, ordinarily, we come from a place of scarcity about our good feelings.
We donâ€™t have enough of them so we try to cling to them or hold on to them when we have them. And what happens, because of that they simply slip away.
The good feelings that we naturally achieve as we let go or that naturally come up in life, we try to hold on to and that actually gets rid of them quicker, but when you allow yourself to let go, even when you are feeling good, two things happen.
You are weakening this tendency to hold on and to hold yourself back and keep yourself in constriction. And two is, as you let go of even the good feelings, the sense of scarcity disappears and you discover that the only thing thatâ€™s finite is your sense of limitation and your unwanted emotions, but your good feelings are infinite.
And the more you let go when you are feeling good, the more and more positive experience you have, the more good feeling you have.
