Sometimes, when one has struggled with life for a long time, the struggle becomes the life. Every day becomes a race against the clock, becomes a blur of activity, mostly spent, trying to please others and “ keep it together “. It can be thought by those locked into this way of life, that if, they just keep trying, keep forcing their influence on situations, those situations must surely improve. They come to believe their will is the magic ingredient for change to occur, this is only partly true. Your will, of course, has influence and worth but to believe that this is the only energy at play creates a very narrow understanding of life. The resources and information available to you, in this time, are limitless, so much so, the very diversity of choice can leave one stunned into inaction, unable to discern which avenue would be of help. The bare truth of this is that while some help or relief may be achieved through mundane resources outside of yourself, the best way to attain resolution to struggle is to not reach, to not search for answers but to let go and allow. The phrase “ letting go “is, often, to the human mind, equated with the phrase “ giving up “ and thus seen, in some way, to be negative and indicative of weakness. We cannot stress enough how very untrue this is. Letting go is one of the bravest actions and shows great strength, while, giving up, at core, means presenting upwards to something higher than yourself, something you know, at heart, will gladly receive it. A life lived well is a full and active life, a minimal amount of struggle to achieve this is acceptable, even, unavoidable. ‘Tis true a little adversity builds spirit but when the little grows into much do not hesitate to give up/present up, for, we will gladly take that which confounds you, lighten it with love and peace to return to you less burdensome. Let go, beloved children, present up to us, for, we await with arms wide open.
