Catherine Ponder, “The Prospering Power of Love” Part III.
The Healing Power of Release:
In The Prophet, Kahlil Gilbran described the loving attitude of release in marriage: “Love one another, but make not a bond of love….let there be spaces in your togetherness…sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone…stand together yet not too near together.”
He described the loving attitude of release toward children in these words: “Your children are not your children, They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you yet they belong not to you….You may house their bodies but not their souls….You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.”
Nowhere is there more need for the expression of love as release than between husbands and wives, between parents and children. We often try to bend others to our will, calling it love when it is really selfish possessiveness that binds instead of frees. Then we wonder why others resist instead of accepting our “help.”
If you want to free yourself from all types of problems in mind, body and affairs, you must release others to find their good in their own way. A clear channel is then opened for a great good to come to all involved. Your own freedom and well-being depend upon such release, as do the freedom and well-being of your loved ones.
“I FULLY AND FREELY RELEASE YOU. I LET YOU GO TO YOUR GOOD. THE GOOD OF ONE IS THE GOOD OF ALL.”
“I FULLY AND FREELY FORGIVE. I CAST AWAY ALL JUDGEMENTS, RESENTMENTS & CRITICISMS TO BE DISSOLVED AND HEALED. THE PROSPERING TRUTH SETS ME FREE TO MEET MY RICH GOOD AND TO SHARE MY GOOD WITH OTHERS.”
