Letting Go with Guy Finley

Summer is a secret time of sacrifice; it marks nature’s perpetual passage from one form into another. The evidence is everywhere: flowers shed their petals to reveal the baby fruits hidden in their buds, even as other maturing fruits ripen to reach maximum sweetness, only to fall to the ground as food for those who find these seasonal gifts.

Letting go takes place naturally as we grow to see that whatever we will release of ourselves is returned to us, only transformed into something greater than what we thought we gave away.

Whenever we will actively surrender ourselves to God, to the Life Divine, then we aren’t just relieved of nagging worries, fears, and doubts; these lower estates of consciousness are replaced with higher ones. For our sacrifice we are given a whole new Self that lives in a world of light where dark states cannot dwell.
