Dreams of Family - Letting Go
I was born into a large family. One of 6 children. Yet I was never really part of this family. I was a Christian for many years, so I could feel like I was part of a family. Religion didn't keep working for me. I have an offspring but I am not considered family.
But lately, I've been praying out into the universe from the deepest part of who I am and "to the totality of all that is" and think I have found an important key to help me overcome panic problems...by simply letting go!
"Letting go means we stop trying to do the impossible--controlling that which we cannot--and instead, focus on what is possible-which usually means taking care of ourselves. And we do this in gentleness, kindness, and love, as much as possible". * Melody Beattie
"Consider the trees which allow the birds to perch and fly away without either inviting them to stay or desiring them never to depart. If your heart can be like this, you will be near to the way". *Zen Buddhist teaching
