I know now that I’ll never lose anything again because I never had anything to begin with. It’s the most freeing feeling in the world to have everything and own nothing.
The onset of the new year sits waiting for us. When you listen close enough, you’ll hear its words of pleading to give ourselves a break, and simply let go.
There are many things we hold onto. Looking back, even only for this year alone, we find stuff attached to our beings that do not serve any real purpose in our lives. Be they tactile or not; they become our baggage, laden with cobwebs of attachments that drag our spirit. Wouldn’t it be uplifting to feel lighter with ourselves?
You keep both feet on the ground. Earthbound. Most people are.
You’re either born with wings or not.
Being grounded does not imply we are so rooted that we are just stuck. We dream. A lot. But forever dreaming isn’t the way to live. There comes a time when we live our dreams. And the only way to do so is to fly.
Do not be afraid to let go. Even when you feel you’re left with nothing. The only way for possibilities to happen is when we create spaces in our lives for them to come in. What room is there left in you when you crowd yourself with things that do not really matter? Let us not get stuck with owning everything yet feeling nothing.
Happy new beginnings.
