Letting Go, BEing in the Flow – The Law of Disattachment

“Always without desire we must be found,
If its deep mystery we would sound;
But if desire always within us be,
Its outer fringe is all that we shall see.”

Lao-Tzu Tao Te Ching (J. Legge, translator) 1891

Ancient martial arts masters taught the Law of Disattachment. When you hold desire, you restrict the flow of energy. It is as if you are trying to force energy to exhibit or appear a certain way. We often use force to create a “desired” outcome, right? To truly BE in the flow of universal energy is to let go of all desire because desire impedes the flow of universal energy. We need to learn to exist simply in a state of BEing that allows universal energy to move in us and through us and back out to the greater universal field. Then all things move in harmony and synchronicity.

Have you ever thought of somebody only to have them call you the next minute? That is a synchronicity. How did it happen. In that moment, you were both in a state of allowing or simply BEing.

Disattachment is a fundamental teaching of Buddha. He recognized that only when we let go of our inner desires and seek outwardly that which is good for all, thereby including that which is also in our own better interests because we individually are part of the greater ALL, then in that state do we truly reflect enlightment – we are all ONE.

When you create an attachment to something mentally and emotionally, it is like creating a string to a thing that is now attached to you and you have to carry it with you until you can cut the string and let it go. Rather, practice being an observer of all things including your own thoughts and emotions – don’t attach to them, just let them come, observe them and let them leave. You have less strings to cut and less baggage to carry.

Strings can also act like tourniquets on your energy field, cutting off the flow of energy in your body. You might have heard of these as stuck emotions. This is often seen in the field of massage therapy. A massage therapist working on a person might release one of these stuck emotions and for no reason the person will start to cry or laugh.

To understand the deep mysteries, we must first start practicing how to release and let go and get in the flow….BEcome ONE with the universe – that includes everybody and everything (animate and inanimate) around you.

The Great Universal Design – What is My Purpose?

It is a time of year that naturally draws us to reflection – to look upon the past year, successes, failures – and to plan the upcoming year, 3 years, 5 years and beyond.

Many people live day-to-day.  Actually “live” might not be the right word – “exist” might be a better word.  They just exist day-to-day with little forethought as to what they want their lives to be like.  They exist day-to-day, meeting the challenges and demands of the day, without a plan to propel them or project them into the life of their dreams.  Most people are afraid to dream.  Dreams don’t come true, that is why they are dreams.

If you could dream a dream – what would your life look like?  What would you want your life to be like?  How would you want to live?  What would you want to be doing?  How would your life have an impact on the lives of others?

Let’s dream….shall we?

The biggest question ever asked is “What is my Purpose?” followed by “Why am I here?”

Two very good questions to ask.  Both relate to your dream life.  After all, why exactly are you here?  Is it to eat, work, sleep, play, rush to and fro, get things, attend events, hang out with friends or is it more?…..Much MORE??

The very essence of your Purpose for being here is simply TO BE.  In this state of BEing, you are in a state of allowing – a state of non-competition or non-competitiveness.  In this state of BEing, all things flow smoothly and effortlessly gently as waves creating a ripple effect throughout all of creation because everything is interconnected.  When we try to force something to go a certain way or get something we think we absolutely must have, we set up contraction or restriction to allowing.  We choke it off and cut off the flow.  Allowing and BEing are like the life’s blood of all that is.  Gain, strife, envy, contraction, restriction stop or restrict the flow of universal energy, the allowing, the BEing that flows through all things.

When we live our life on Purpose in a state of Allowing, we allow the flow of univeral life blood to flow through us and reach out to everyone and everything that our lives are meant to touch.  Our lives are not meant to be shallow, barely substantive existences but rather our lives are meant to be exuberant, vigorous, expansive life energies that have a positive, exhilarating effect on the lives of everything around us.

Let’s dream…what is your dream…do you feel your Purpose…can you move into a state of allowing…let your dream become your reality!

Letting Go

What is letting go? What does it mean to let go? What does letting go have to do with stress anyway?

Letting go is as simple as it sounds, but not as easy as it sounds. If you’re struggling to Let Go, you are hanging on.

Letting go is disconnecting from your thoughts and emotions. Most people relate their thoughts and feelings as to who they are. But you are not your thoughts and emotions. Your thoughts and emotions are expressions of the state of BEing you currently find yourself in. Your State of BEing can be controlled and changed at WILL. Will Power is the greatest Power in the Universe. As you WILL to change your thoughts and emotions and Choose to change your thoughts and emotions, you begin the process of Letting Go.

Holding onto thoughts and emotions creates tension in the body. The tension slowly builds over time creating chronic cellular stress. Tension restricts the flow of universal energy creating energy blockages. Letting Go of stored thoughts and emotions, old baggage, and becoming Present with the Moment, releases tension, eases constriction, creates fluidity in the body and allows energy to begin to flow more freely.

Letting Go the Law of Least Effort

Letting Go The Law of Least Effort

2008-05-21 10:05:30

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.
