Letting Go of Imprisonment

A matter of Faith and Belief

The reason why we don’t move in the direction we want is because we’re not letting go of those things which hold us back. Fear, anxiety, worry…. loss.

But, if we would just let go of those emotional anchors that fix us onto a given point in life, we would find ourselves on the ebb and flow of an amazing life. The life that was meant for us. The reason we are here.

Instead, we cling unto those things that hold us back, including material possessions, because we think that they are what makes us, maintaining a form of mental prison, since it’s where our comfort zone is, staying behind what we really could be.

We imprison ourselves…. mentally.

Instead of letting go and trusting in all that is, whatever you choose to name it, God, universe, we hold onto those ideas and ideals that keep us bound to a place which we may not want.

This is a self made prison, a cage that holds you like a caged bird looking outwards and seeing other birds flying freely, blaming the cage you’re in; the cage, the prison you have created.

But if you realise and consequently accept that the cage is of your own making, then you can begin to break it apart. Eventually you’ll have taken apart a majority of it which will allow you to see clearer and with a leap of faith in yourself and your own abilities you’ll be able to fly freely.

To get there you must trust in yourself and in all that is.

Should you be in a position which is where you want to be then you could ask yourself – have I let go? And if you have not, then how much further could you reach if you did?

Follow your heart and let go. Trust that it will be so and it will be.

Let go and let God.

A life imprisoned is no life at all. A cage is still a cage regardless of how you disguise it.
Christos Harrison

On the subject of letting go, a short exert from a lecture by Alan Watts, created by Wiara.
