With the use of our sacred word we let go of all thoughts and emotions and open to the presence and actions of God within.
We do this whenever needed during our Centering Prayer sit.
Why wouldn’t you also do this during your everyday life?
Let me provide a few examples.
You wish to go outside for a walk. Instead, it is raining. Let go. Open to what you can do inside. Or. Grab an umbrella and take your walk.
You meet a friend for lunch. You have much weighing on your mind that you wish to share. Instead, your friend too has much on her mind. You let your friend talk. You can tell she needed this time. You will share next time.
You interview for a new position. A week later you learn you did not get chosen. Let go. Open to other opportunities that stand in front of you.
This letting go during Centering Prayer is not meant to be confined to Centering Prayer.
We are to take this letting go posture and open to life.
When we let go we open to new, wonderful and endless possibilities.
Letting go opens us to life and all it has to teach and offer us.
P.S. Need help letting go. Contact me. I can help you.
