Letting Go

This little inspirational is helpful as we reflect on life. Indeed, we stress ourselves up with 'No Time,' 'All work,' 'too busy' and all those modern efforts to try to make ourselves so important that we refuse to simply 'let go.' The video clip here brings to life some of the words of the poem. The best way to read these statements is not to analyze each statement or word and judge them. It is simply taking a step back and think of the irony of life. Fact is, the more we try to control destinies, the more we will realize that we are limited beings.

===================== Words of the Poem =================
To let go does not mean to stop caring,
   it means I can't do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off,
   it's the realization I can't control another.
To let go is not to enable,
   but allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means
   the outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try to change or blame another,
   it's to make the most of myself.
To let go is not to care for,
   but to care about.
To let go is not to fix,
   but to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge,
   but to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
   but to allow others to affect their destinies.
To let go is not to be protective,
   it's to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny,
   but to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold or argue,
   but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.
To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires,
   but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
To let go is not to criticize or regulate anybody,
   but to try to become what I dream I can be.
To let go is not to regret the past,
   but to grow and live for the future.

To let go is to fear less and love more
To let go and to let God, is to find peace !
Remember: The time to love is short
