Letting Go of Attachments to Disappointment and Heartache

posted by Guy Finley

Once we start to see, to know in our innermost heart, that life itself is already complete, we can let go of whatever — or whoever — would have us believe otherwise. Old attachments and their long-standing aches are now seen for being what they have always been: appendages of days gone by, worthless to the Higher Self we have agreed to become and by whose stillness we realize this need for a wholly new valuation of our own soul. Now is the season to die to discontent, to withdraw our consent to live with any thoughts or feelings that would convince us it’s necessary to live in conflict or confusion. 


During the dark days of winter, we should take time each day — as often as possible — to quietly return to the living Light that dwells in the center of ourselves. By gathering our attention in this way, and bringing the whole of ourselves into the heart of this interior stillness, we not only collect our own forces, as nature herself is doing, but much more: in this deliberate act of gathering ourselves — and for the conscious sense of quiet contentment we find within it — we are also being released from the false idea that the source of our strength and security can be found somewhere outside us.
