Don’t Hold On

Don’t hold on to what you are passing through, or you may never get out. It’s going to be a bit bumpy, even scary at times, but you must LET GO of where you are in order to GO where you are headed.

Trust that where you are headed will hold you.

To reach your destiny, you must trust that your destiny will hold you, just like you trust where you are to hold you. Think about it; you don’t really worry about going to where you are today: a job, a class, a meeting; you simply go. You go knowing that where you are going will “hold” you.

Will the opportunity you’ve become to depend on today be there tomorrow?

The job will be there, the supply will be there; what you need is provided by where you are. Where you are has created a sense of security, and we all like to feel secure. When in reality, you don’t really know if the job will be there or not. Will the company shut down overnight? Will the college suddenly stop offering the class? Will the opportunity you’ve become to depend on today be there tomorrow?

We don’t spend time thinking about it; we just go. We don’t think about whether the chair will hold us before we sit on it; we just sit. We treat where we are at in life the same way; we just go. 

Anxiety comes from no longer being happy with where you are at, and not yet being where you want to be. And not only not being where you want to be, but not really knowing if where you want to be will be will “hold” you when you finally arrive.

Will you be able to make your living at what you love to do? Will the singing gig be what you think it will be when you finally get there? Will running your own business be as glamorous as it sounds? More importantly, will where you really want to be provide you the security you need? Can you make a living doing what you love to do? Will the life you really want be able to “hold” you?

Stop trying to make where you don’t want to be your home.

The only way you will ever know is to LET GO. The only way to know whether your future will hold you, is to let go of your present. That doesn’t mean “quit,” it means “let go.” Stop trying to make where you don’t want to be your home. Start “separating” yourself from where you are, and setting your sites more on where you want to be.

Begin to reserve some mental and emotional energy for your future rather than giving it all away to your present. Be present. Be efficient, but keep some of your personal power in reserve and start investing that power into where you want to be.

The only way to know whether your future will hold you, is to let go of your present.

Over a period of time, where you want to be will start feeling more secure. You will start feeling less and less “attached” to where you don’t want to be and more and more drawn to where you do want to be. This is the natural progress of separation. When complete, the process of “letting go” will deliver you to where you ultimately were designed to be, AND that place will be more than able to “hold” you. In fact, when you finally reach where you were destined to be, you will say, “Why didn’t I do this much sooner.”

Don’t hold on to what you are passing through, or you may never get out. LET GO! It’s the only way to get where you are going.
