Letting go

Today we wish to speak to you on the subject of "letting go." It is the nature of life itself to move forward, one moment at a time, constantly and eternally evolving. It is the nature of the apple tree to grow and blossom simply to release the apples into your willing hands. It is the nature of plants to seed, grow, mature, die, and then decay, knowing that their life force will sustain those to follow.

It is the nature of waves to crash upon the sand and then to fall back again, releasing their treasures to the playful children on the beach. Even the animals are born knowing that each day will bring new surprises and that they must adapt to their changing circumstances. It is only the human race that believes security, peace, and joy are to be found in an unchanging reality. In truth, your greatest security, your greatest peace, and your greatest joys are found when you are truly living in the present moment, guided by the very force of love that created you.

Look around your lives and your homes. Look inside your own hearts. Ask yourself, "What objects truly uplift me? What have begun to burden me?" Why do you keep that drawer filled with clutter when it annoys you every time you open it? What relationships bring mutual and natural elevation to your spirit? If you can't change the relationship, what beliefs would help you find greater peace? Which old ones need to go? If you want greater security, peace, and joy in your lives, dear ones then ask yourself, "Where am I fooling myself? Where am I saying something works in my life when it does not? What must I let go to make room for more?" This may be as simple as cleaning your closets. It may mean withdrawing from an organization, or a relationship, that has been there only out of a sense of obligation. It may mean allowing yourself to grieve a death or divorce, but then being willing to open your heart again to the love that is just around the corner.

If you live in the present moment, you will see quite clearly what belongs in your life now and what does not. If you cling to the past you will be missing joys in the present. If you cling to a desired future a bit too tightly you will miss the guidance right now. LIfe is lived now dear ones. Let go, let go, let go of what no longer serves you, from objects to beliefs, for if you are willing, God and your angels will happily fill you back up with greater joy.
