Letting go

If you truly want to grow spiritually, you’ll realize that keeping your “stuff”  is keeping you trapped. Eventually you’ll want out, at any cost. You will then realize that life is trying to help you. Life is surrounding you with people and situations that stimulate your growth. You don’t have to decide who is right or who is wrong. You don’t have to worry about other’s people’s issues. You only have to be willing to open your heart in the face of anything and everything, and permit the purification process to take place.

When you do this, the first thing you’ll see, is that situations will unfold that hit your stuff.  But in truth, that is exactly what has been happening your whole life. The only difference is that now you see it as an good thing and an opportunity to let go.
