“In the process of letting go, you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself.”
Which do I desire more:
To maintain the “knowns” of my Past memories…
Or to uncover what is “yet to be known” of my Undiscovered Self?
The former is stasis.
The latter is change.
The one harbors energy.
The other releases it.
The first commits to carrying everything and is chained to the ground…
The second soars above, free.
Pause and consider:
What if our “Loss”…
Is actually “Gain”?
Could this be?
If the root of my desires is truly to bring Change into my life…
Into my world…
Then my path for each (and yes, every!) decision I make is to relinquish what has gone before
So I may make room within…
So I may create a spacious spirit.
So I may
Who I Truly Am.
Tao Te Ching 4 speaks of the utility of an empty vessel.
It is only useful in its inner space…in its emptiness.
Fill it once
Leave it so…and it will never be filled again.
But empty it?
Now it is ready to be filled anew.
We were never created to “hold” things over time.
We were created to be filled and then to pour out
Over and over.
We are Beings of Light (radiance)
And we are Light Beings (weightless).
We are intended to be Emptying Vessels that pour light everywhere…
Remaining ever expectant to be refilled and emptied
Close your eyes.
Select one thought or emotion that is filling you…
That may be keeping you from being refilled.
Pouring this out.
Feel the Vessel that is Your Soul
Becoming a little lighter.
Notice where within you that this lightness is showing up.
Allow gratitude for that lightness to fill the space you have just created.
See if you can use this imagery two more times today, noting how it feels each time
Within mind, body or spirit.
I Pause to choose thoughts and actions that create radiance and weightlessness in my life.
My gratitude is the source of my lightness.
I am pouring out now.
I am empty again.
I am ready to be filled.
I am honoring Who I Am.
