Living each day much muchier

Letting go

You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them.

It’s a curious thing, the way we are all the centre of our universe.

Together, we are like countless burning suns, spinning and pulling parts of the cosmos into our orbit. The nature of gravity is to hold.

After a while, we become accustomed to the forces exerted on us. We no longer notice their weight and how they impact the way we feel.  Until, of course, orbits change and we wobble.

I just spent a weekend feeling perfectly blissful.  It was a very ordinary weekend and nothing unusual happened. I danced. I dined with friends. I slept in. I practiced the arts I love.  I laughed a lot.

I feel like a newly formed sun, beginning to shine and pull things into my orbit.

It’s a nice feeling, watching alien stars rise and set on my horizon. I am becoming familiar with their patterns and their gravitational pull.

Being new, it’s hard to know which of these bright lights are stars to be fixed in my new heaven.  Which clusters do they belong to? Are they travelling to or away from me?

There are temporal objects in my field like the pleasure of doing demos for the beginner’s class. It’s rewarding, but if I make it part of my orbit, what happens when it’s someone else’s turn?

Likewise, there are certain people I find exquisite, but they’re not subject to my gravity.

Some lights are only comets, no more than distant, sparkling ice and dust following a far wider orbit than I can imagine.

So, I feel called to let go… not necessarily to say goodbye, just to accept things for what or who they are and why they’re there.

They’re beautiful but they’ll become heavy if I hold on once their natural, orbital path takes them away from me.

So I will enjoy them, but then as C JoyBell C writes – let them go, let go of them.
