Sometimes we become too desperate in trying to attain the things we want, and when we can’t attain them we feel incapable and needy. The same feeling is felt when we become too desperate in trying to avoid the things we don’t want.
When you feel that there is no way of attaining what you do want, or avoiding what you don’t want, fear does not have to be your only option! You can feel free if you consider well enough the option of letting go.
Letting go does not mean you stop wanting things that make you happy, but it means that, because you are faced with not getting what you want, you allow yourself to become more carefree about it and it is thus that you can but only attain a sense of satisfaction.
“There is no fear for one whose mind is not filled with desires.” ~ Gautama the Buddha
I have found true happiness in stopping the fight for the unattainable, and the fight against the unavoidable, because desperate desiring leads to nothing but resistance. Letting go has allowed me to feel completely carefree, and the more carefree I became about my desires, the happier I was. This happiness is yours too if you allow yourself to become free of care about the desires that lead to nothing but neediness.
Go beyond this world of fear against the inevitable; go beyond this world of desire for the unfulfillable, and surrender all to your Source (whomever or whatever that may be).
You can’t have heaven on earth by falling prey to worldly things, you can only have true heaven on earth by relying on the choice that comes from within – which is to let go, and become carefree. Easier said than done, believe me I know, but it’s the only way to be truly happy.
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth… But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” ~ Jesus the Christ
