Arguably Trump does it successfully again.

Being that mirror to those part of ourselves that we dislike.

Most notably, our reluctance to let go.

To let something physically go, is easy. We just open our hands and let it free.

But when it comes to thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, habits, behaviours, identities, positions, well, often we find ourselves doing all we can to cling on.  These are the constructs that we have created to keep us feeling safe and feeling worthy. Even if they no longer serve us, we grasp to them for dear life.  We cling on with obstinence and belligerence. Our fixations became constrictive, disenabling and disempowering.

Letting go is the ultimate spiritual practice is it not?.

So here is a poem in its honour.

 

Let it go

 

A feeling ferments

Let it go

 

A thought takes hold

Let it go

 

An emotion entrenches

Let it go

 

An attachment affixes

Let it go

 

A belief binds

Let it go

 

A pleasure panders

Let it go

 

A craving clings

Let it go

 

A fear festers

Let it go

 

A judgement jumps up

Let it go

 

An aversion arises

Let it go

 

A blame bubbles

Let it go

 

A guilt grips

Let it go

 

A worry whirls

Let it go

 

A shame surfaces

Let it go

 

A pain persists

Let it go
