Me? Let go of my story?

“Be patient where you sit in the dark, the dawn is coming.” ~ Rumi

let-goJust as the periods between light and dark are cyclical, so to are all things in life. Life as we know it is cyclical as well. we are born with nothing and we pass on from this life with nothing. Life is designed in a cycle that upon renewal, there is no baggage to take with us. Some people take a whole lifetime to realize that, some more than that.

So, this dark and light, what is it? Is it to be feared?I don’t think so. It’s the yin and yang, the beginning and the end, the good and bad. You can’t really experience one without the other. You may be able to minimize the negative effects or the fallout, but you can’t have one without its corresponding polar opposite. Life is a cornucopia of experiences. you sometimes have to wade through all the different possibilities in order to find the experience you’re looking for. You don’t have to dwell on or immerse yourself in the thoughts or experiences that come into your sphere, but you may need to acknowledge them, bless them and release them.

Life is funny. The more you resist or deny the experiences that move through your sphere, the more they persist. If you were to just allow it to present itself and say “no thank you” that thing would just cease to be.

But, then we would have to let go of our story, wouldn’t we?
