In my yoga classes the last couple of weeks we have been discussing setting our intentions for the new year. Change is definitely something that sends fear througout every crevice of our body. But without it we never grow. If there is one thing I believe in, it is that you can NEVER lose something that is right for you. If you let it go for one reason or another, you give it space to BE and to find its natural place amongst the backdrop of your life.
This year has taught me in particular that sometimes there are situations in our lives that are so deeply and profoundly broken that it is best to let them go, bless them and allow them to heal without the ego-need to control the outcome. Deep peace comes from surrendering the ego to the wisdom of the heart. It is through surrender that one frees themselves from the very mental constructs that they themselves both create and inflict upon themselves.
Make this a new year. Set your intention that this year things will be different. Leave the past behind and open up to a new future. You owe it to yourself.
