Choose to Let Go and Live the Extraordinary Life

posted by Guy Finley

As summer trees must cast off their ripened fruits, so the whole summer season must submit itself to the coming cooler days of fall. And, accordingly, as the earth turns, each season must let go and allow the coming season its time and place – even as the earth itself must yield to the sun’s influence over the whole of her body. But neither has the sun any choice when it comes to releasing the fruit of its abundant radiant energy. And for its letting go the sun not only provides life-giving forces for all created to receive them, but also lights up all the stages upon which life has been made possible because of it. As little, but wise Yoda – of “Star Wars” fame – would say: Grand, it is!

But now we have come to the most important question of all: where is our place in this extraordinary life; what is our role in a reality that unfolds as it does because the continual act of letting go makes all things possible?

Letting go, at its heart, is an act of agreement with Life. It is an accord on our part with what the present moment tells us about ourselves as it unfolds before us, asking of us what it does. And what is it that Life is asking of us moment to moment? It’s simple, really:

Life is asking each of us: will you be a witness to my Story? Will you let go of your short-lived moment in the sun of passing circumstances – in order to realize that just behind all such shadows dwells a Life whose Light never fades?

Will you choose in favor of entering into a Life whose story never ends, and in which fear and failure simply do not exist?

And what must we choose so that we can participate in this Greater Story?

We must choose to let go.

The Endlessness of Real Love
Have you ever seen in a relationship that you have with someone that the alignment is starting to go off (so to speak) and you can see the car starting to drift?
