” In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself. It will be a permanent Self, rooted in awareness and creativity. Once you have captured this you have captured the world.”                Deepak Chopra

holding on

 Letting go:

Of every exhalation

Of the day as we fall asleep

Of our children as they grow up and leave home

Of things that no longer serve us

Of a past that weighs us down

Of relationships that no longer nurture us

Of roles that we have outgrown

Of over thinking

Of our habits and conditioning

Of “me” “I” and “mine” as we experience our connection to something more within us and around us

Life is a journey of letting go in order to find what really matters.

  •  Take a few moments to pause and reflect on all the things that you have let go of in the past…
  • The things that you are working on right now…
  • And what you might still be holding on to…

Letting go is part of the natural rhythm of life.

Trust in this and embrace it fully with an open mind and heart.

In taking these courageous steps every day we come to know our true permanent Self and move towards real freedom.

    Such good reflections here. I do love the Chopra quote in its emphasis on creativity. Every day, we are in the process of creating our lives. Letting go of what no longer serves us is an important part of the process. Thanks for these wise words.


  4. This is so good Val, thank you! x ❤


  5. Val, I’m always amazed when I look back on the things I let go that I thought I could not live without, yet here I am; stronger, more vibrant and a little bit wiser for doing so. 🙂

  6. Once done (if not mastered), the art of letting go becomes invaluable. Good to remind us, Val. 🙂


  7. Val, great post. I would like to pick up on Eric’s “if not mastered” because I have this real sense that while my heart agrees wholeheartedly with your post, and with Eric’s reply, my head is uncertain as to whether I really know how to let go. Any practical suggestions?


  8. John O’Donohue: “We need to learn to be creative about loss because this is the process that we are involved in. The art at the heart of the mystical is letting go.”
