Let It Go!

As I was working out this morning on the treadmill, attempting to honor my New Year's resolution and stay on the weight loss train (the one that threatens constantly to leave the station without me on board), it occurred to me that there were some other areas in my life where I could stand to loose a little weight!

Other things that grow, and get out of control if left unchecked. Other things that weigh me down, thinking and beliefs that can do as much damage as being morbidly obese. Other things that I need to workout, and let go of. And hopefully as you're reading this, you too are doing a mental check of the weight that you are carrying, for I suspect that many of us are dangerously, overweight. We are weighed down with the weight of the world, carrying around all sorts of things that if we'd just let go, would go! Are you weighed down by anger, are your emotions out of control? Maybe you're looking at the worlds through a clouded, narrow view. If so, consider this a great new diet plan. For it is a way you can loose hundreds of pounds almost instantly! And you won't have to exercise, though you should, and yes you can eat whatever you want, though you shouldn't Sound too good to be true? Well I wouldn't lie to you. And, I won't keep you waiting any longer. So here we go. All you have to do is LET IT GO!

Oh, I can imagine the moaning, so calm down. I'll explain. But first let me ask you this- how much do you weigh? And now, the person that makes you craziest. Be it your ex, your current, a sibling, boss, or co-worker. How much do they weigh? Lets say an average of 185lbs. Okay, now take all that energy that you give that person- all the angst you waste on the situation. Bundle it up and let it go! You see instant weight loss. Oh but I'm not done, I'm just getting started... Let's start with the past. Those memories that still haunt you, those things that you think you just can't get over, the burdens you carry daily. Oh the wait of it all, let it go! It has been proven that most of us are eating to deaden ourselves, many of us are eating to comfort ourselves, and some are simply eating to escape. And, of course when you're not healthy, you don't make healthy choices. Calorie counting is far too tedious when your consumed with recounting the past.
Let it go!

I'm thinking of the book "THE POWER OF NOW", a guide to spiritual enlightenment by author Eckart Tolle. And I need to be enlightened myself because life tends to add allot of extra weight. and it might just not be around the mid-section! It's two-fold. The older I get, it seems the less I trip on trivial matters, for the more real life or should I say real big issues loom. Those things that feel like the weight of the world resting solely on my shoulders, those ties that bind that can't be cut- at least not just yet... LET THEM GO! I suspect that one of the tricks to weight loss, weight loss of any kind, lies in the power of NOW, and the willingness to let go of our painful pasts, as well as woe around a future we cannot know. Just let it go! Let go of the energy and the weight that surrounds those unhealthy relationships. Let go of the pain and weight of the past hurts that can only serve to keep you hurting. Let go of the fears that rattle your cages and your psyche's...LET IT GO! and, watch your appetite diminish! You'll loose your taste for fear, drama, and pain, and you won't create or allow it. You'll just let it go. And how you ask? Well, I'll tell you.
But you're not going to like it... JUST DO IT!

Because you see, this is what I know so far. Any habitual way of being can be clanged, And while it isn't necessarily easy, it's most definitely possible. It takes honesty about what's really eating you, education about how to redirect the situation, and willingness to LET IT GO! You'll begin to envision your life the way you desire it to be.... You see, the cosmic law of attraction is always working either for you, OR on you. Use it to remove the weight you don't want to carry, and use it to draw to you that which you desire. And trust that it will right all the wrongs, if you are willing to let it go.
