Letting Go The Law of Least Effort
What is Letting Go? What does this mean? More importantly, how does one apply it in one’s life?
Letting Go is also called the Law of Allowing. It means we stop trying to do everything in our lives and allow the creative force to flow through us. Everything? You might well ask. Yes, indeed, everything.
Having said this, this is not an easy thing to do, this letting go and allowing. In fact, it’s one of the hardest things you will ever do! Why? Because the ego doesn’t allow it. The ego always wants to be in control. The ego feels like it has to be in control. At a truly spiritual core and centeredness, you will learn and will allow yourself to gradually let go of control.
Ask yourself, everytime you are faced with a decision or a question, when dealing with your children, where does “this” (the thing you are facing) fit into the whole scheme of things? How big is it and will it matter tomorrow, next year, five years from now, 50 years from now?
When put into perspective, we soon realize that all things are really rather small and insignificant. We are never really in control of anything. Control is an illusion. For those who obsess and are compulsive about having to have things a certain way, what will it matter in the long run to do something differently, put things in a different place, rearrange things, put things into a new perspective? Change opens our minds to see things in a new light, from a different perspective. One slight change, can open us up to infinite possibilities.
Letting go is about stepping aside from oneself and allowing whatever greater power you believe in to work through you, to use you as a conduit of greater things. You will see things begin to happen around you. Things will show up and you will know, intuitively, what you should follow through with and what you should let slide by.
If you catch onto something you think you should hold onto and struggle with it and try to make it fit into your life, you may succeed to some degree or you may find yourself wondering why your life sucks right about now. Why is it so hard? Why is it a struggle?
Ask for clarity. Ask for understanding. Ask to know what things you should follow and what you should let go of. Asking is a powerful thing. All we have to do is ask. Don’t assume you have the answers or know what you should be doing. Allow the greatness of your life to unfold. Become a spectator of your life.
You will be truly amazed.
