Yesterday morning I woke up with “letting go” in my thoughts. Sometimes I have visions that are magnified to me and this was like a marquee with “letting go” in bright lights. So, I pondered it off and, on all day, thinking about what it might mean, what is the message for me. The first thing that came to me was I had been going back to the past and wishing I had known then what I know now, wanting to have been different and better, been more open, more loving, more adventuresome. I knew I needed to let go of that, but that wasn’t all of it as the words kept coming to me.
Then, I pondered if it was letting go of my negative thoughts, words and actions which I self-monitor constantly; of foods that aren’t the best for me acknowledging I eat well the majority of time; letting go of people that no longer feel right where I am in my life, then knowing I am surrounded by loving, caring people; letting go of places that I have always gone, doing things I have always done, and being the way I have always been ultimately realizing I choose to live an ordered life with all that I thoroughly enjoy. I pondered if it was letting go of life, of this time, this space, this dimension, this Earth, this solar system, and so forth. I pretty much covered all the things I could think of that might mean letting go. I even pondered if it meant letting go of my precious little Reggie, which was a definite no.
When I awoke this morning, it was still there, the “letting go” sign. As Reggie and I were outside walking in the quiet first thing this morning with the fresh freeze gently blowing in the fragrance of the flowers, the bright sunlight shining on us from the clear blue skies, and the beauty of the trees, flowers, homes, people and this place, I knew what it meant.
Letting go of everything but just this moment.
It is all I have.
Spirit was reminding me.
Reggie doesn’t have to be reminded as he lets go of what he is doing to move on to the next thing naturally. He lives fully in each moment with passion, joy, and enthusiasm. Nancy and Reggie♥
