Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.
Gather the stars if you wish it so Gather the songs and keep them. Gather the faces of women. Gather for keeping years and years. And then… Loosen your hands, let go and say good-bye. Let the stars and songs go. Let the faces and years go. Loosen your hands and say good-bye.
There seems to be one quality of mind which seems to be of special and extreme advantage in leading him to make discoveries. It was the power of never letting exceptions go unnoticed.
The act of surrendering sort of puts me in a different mindset that allows me to be more of a channel – because I’m not holding on so tightly to things, I’m letting go, and I find that in letting go I become more of a channel for life to really happen on life’s terms. I mean, maybe that sounds sort of metaphysical, but that’s honestly how I feel.
Persevere. Plan. Strategize. Focus. Breathe. Write. Let go: relax. Forgive. All this failing: take a nap.
Memory cuts both ways; it can either provide you with tremendous strength and a foundation to carry you through your life, or it can be a demon that just ruins your present and your future because you can’t let go of the past.
Until we let go of our mental images of who we are or who we should be, our vision remains clouded by expectation. But when we let go of everything, open ourselves to any truth, and see the world without fear or judgement, then we are finally able to begin the process of peeling off the shell of false identity that prevents our true self from growing and shining in to the world.
I don’t know if I’m supposed to be holding on or letting go. I don’t want to give up, but if there’s nothing for me to hope for, then tell me.
Live your life. Be happy as you can be, let go of the things that don’t matter, and fight.
The farther behind I leave the past, the closer I am to forging my own character.
Pretending not to be hurt is a brave thing to do… But you know what? Crying is braver. Why? Coz not everyone can accept the fact that… Not all things are meant for you.
True love doesn’t have a happy ending, because true love never ends. Letting go is one way of saying I love you.
God never gives up on us no matter how hard we try to get ourselves loose. God does not let go. That doesn’t mean he controls everything we do. It doesn’t mean he puts a bridle on us and leads us by the nose. He gives each one of us free will and common sense and a spirit that can communicate with his. When we go through afflictions, he allows us to choose our response. But no matter what our response may be, he sticks around to the bitter end.
Now, I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but guilt is simply God’s way of letting you know that you’re having too good a time.
That the reason why they are not fallen already and do not fall now is only that God’s appointed time is not come. For it is said, that when that due time, or appointed time comes, their foot shall slide. Then they shall be left to fall, as they are inclined by their own weight. God will not hold them up in these slippery places any longer, but will let them go; and then, at that very instant, they shall fall into destruction; as he that stands on such slippery declining ground, on the edge of a pit, he cannot stand alone, when he is let go he immediately falls and is lost.
I think I let go of the need for approval. It certainly feels good when you get it, but I used to be more desperate for it. Once I felt better inside about myself… I could do everything based on how I want to do things.
Everything we need is already there. The challenge is letting go of all our stuff in the way.
Each exhale allows us to let go of the moment that has just passed.
We all have some flaws. But when I have a moment of doubt, I find inspiration from being in the moment, by letting go. I don’t hold onto what I can’t control. Doubt is a fleeting emotion that can destroy you if you allow it to consume your mind and spirit. Each person’s time comes at variant phases, and the best you can do is enjoy what you’re doing and work hard. It can’t always be about you. Life is transformation – the wind blows, climate changes, birds chirp and trees burn. Where you are today is not where you will be tomorrow. The only person you can be is you.
