letting-go

“letting go” Haibun

I was reminded while researching quotes from Eat, Pray, Love just how important it is to seek one’s authentic self, to seek balance, to let loose and have an adventure. And to do all of these things at once, but not always alone. Sometimes in the company of strangers and sometimes with friends old and new.

let go and find self
to be free, become unique
seek balance with love

And I was transported back to the image of Liz on that rooftop in India dancing with her ex-husband, sending him love, and then letting him go. What a beautiful gift we can give to someone we once cherished, but have moved on from in our lives. We don’t need to remember the pain, just the love. And in that love, we can release them.

letting go of pain
opens the door to great love
wisdom grows within

    The greatest love we can show another is to let go – strange and counter-intuitive as it seems, in letting go, we keep so much more 🙂
