Fear, worry, tension, despair, and dread. It is a lot to handle. Gravity can weigh you down so immensely. Do you feel the strain? Many people say just hold on, things are bound to get better. Problem is, you need relief right now. Things are too much for you and you don't think you can take the torture of it for even another hour.
If life has no joy and no reward other than pain and constant struggle, then that is a whole lot to deal with. To survive which is something you are not sure you even want to do you must go on. We cannot see into the future, but we sure can loathe the present and agonize about the past. Such heavy feelings would make our future seem bleak indeed. But despite appearances, no situation is hopeless.
Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do good things happen to bad people? Why do good and bad things happen? Do good and bad people cause them? Are they caused deliberately, or by mistake and ignorance? Are there really good and bad people? Are there really good and bad things, or are there just developments in process? Caught up in whirlwinds, we often fail to see that things happen in cycles, that the forces of nature have reason. That a turnaround is just around the corner whether we do anything about it or not, as if we could control the weather!
Disconnect from the drama! Drop it! Let it go! Holding on to expectations can only cause anxiety. Fate happens and our destiny will unfold to our ultimate betterment. We are taught by experience and we learn from experience, which means we are students of experiences. It is the teacher, not the student that chooses the lessons and curriculum. We have no control; a high power has already laid out everything that will happen to us. There is nothing we can do about it and we cannot blame other people or ourselves for the things that happen. So let it go. Just let it go and have faith.
It is always darkest before the dawn. Let go of the dark and let go of the dawn. They are not real anyway. They are just for our entertainment and learning. It is only a movie playing on a screen, and we have gotten caught up in it, thinking that all that stuff is really happening to us. Life is just a dream. You know how real dreams can seem, but then you wake up and you know it was just an airy nothing. That is the way our life is. Knowing that life is just a stage and we are only acting a part in it is the way to rise above it. This knowledge is the key to freedom.
Let go your responsibilities, let go your burdens, and let go your cares. Do whatever it is you want to do, the things you really feel like doing because you can do no wrong. There are no consequences because whatever happens was meant to happen and would have happened no matter what. You cannot affect it and you need not be affected by it. It is a script already written and we are only puppets in a play tied to strings of motivation that we mistake for free will. But it is not real. It is an illusion.
How happy go lucky would you be if you knew you were dreaming life? You are dreaming life! We all are, but just do not know it! If you are carrying the weight of reality right now... let it go. Lighten up. If you have the weight of the world on your shoulders... let it go. Live unencumbered. 200 years ago, today was as nothing to you, just as 200 years from now is as nothing to you today. Today is as nothing to you both 200 years ago and 200 years from now. Just let it go.
Forget your troubles. Relax. Open your mind and open your hands and you will be grabbing hold of nothing. Everyone seems to think they need something. Release your need for anything and you will be enlightened. There will be nothing to hold you down. You will fly. You will soar to the heights of freedom and liberation. Just let it go and you will go beyond. Beyond concern or care.
