To withdrawal, minimize, to downsize and focus on the more vital things (from financial to spiritual), this is the essence of self-reliance. It is the regeneration, so that the reserves will be there when it matters most.
But we spread ourselves too thin, deplete time and attention from the quality we put into the things, people, and situations that matter most to us.
We are in a constant state of change. Everything around us is as well: businesses, relationships, jobs, etc. If we do not shift and adjust with the “evolutionary impulse” (a phrase coined by Eckhart Tolle) and if our commitments and attention are spread over a zillion different things, we will miss those key moments meant to bring us abundance and true bliss. (psst…possession of many things is not the equivalent of abundance)
The fear of loss is what catches us up. We think that if we let go of something, we will never see it again. This is a lie. And it is the daily Big Mac feeding the ego (that part of us insisting on tying our value, worth, and identity to things, beliefs, and people).
Ironically, “letting go” is exactly what we need to do to find abundance, to find joy and bliss.
If you let go of everything you think you need to survive; whatever is true will follow you. (psst…the rest is rubbish)
You don’t need to conjure, manipulate, or control to keep things and people in your life. Those things that contribute to your highest good will automatically (and naturally) follow you. The question is, what are you holding on to that isn’t?
Things to remember…
- Focus on quality verses quantity.
- Let go of the excess.
- Trust that new and better things will come your way if you do.
