The Art of Letting Go

'Letting Go', United States, New York, Montauk 

Pulling out the chair
Beneath your mind
And watching you fall upon God
~ Hafiz

Holding on is believing that there’s only a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future. ~Daphne Rose Kingma

We’re all broken human beings, every single one of us. We’re all a mess.

But God’s here to love us, to heal us, to transform us, and through us to become his presence, his hands and heart and voice.

Awakened people awaken people.

We become agents of change…of healing reconciliation.

Our ability to choose is our ultimate power as human beings.

We can choose or refuse Jesus at any time. But God is faithful, regardless of what we do.

So be drawn by the gentleness of love.

And May God Bless you with his impossible grace!

The Art of Letting Go

We think our control keeps us safe, but it actually keeps us bound.

The truth is, our letting go allows God to hold us, to heal us, and to transform us.

In surrender, our control falls apart into something greater, a larger grace, a boundless place where our hearts expand…

Surrender leads us into what we can’t fully understand, hence what we can’t control. Surrender is our fall into sanity, to becoming whole and wise… bathing in grace.

Surrender is the art of letting go. The art of creating with our Creator. An art we engage in the moment we hit our knees, and lift our eyes, as we ‘let go and let God.’

Letting go is like a trust fall into the arms of God.

Letting go is a like a pilgrimage of the spirit, in our becoming deeper, richer, fuller.

We let go so that we might become who we really are…in God’s eyes, our eternal self, our whole self, our true self.

And as we awaken in who we really are, our past, present, and future begin to converge into this present moment.

Then falling away like mists in the wind, the veil of eternity becomes very thin where we walk with God in the cool of the day.
