Why are we here? And what is our true role in this world? For, as we start to see reality -- as it is -- in its timeless expression of creating life, perfecting it, and then letting it go, only to start all over again, we realize that we ourselves are an integral part of this Great Endless Story. And if the whole of life is being made new in each and every moment -- and we ourselves are a part of its never-ending process of perfection -- then letting go isn't some distant and difficult faculty to be acquired. On the contrary: letting go is an effortless state of our own consciousness; it is a natural power of ours needing only to be actualized in order for us to realize the freedom that it alone can grant.
Letting go, at its heart, is an act of agreement with Life. It is an accord on our part with what the present moment tells us about ourselves as it unfolds before us, asking of us what it does. And what is it that Life is asking of us moment to moment? It's simple, really:
Life is asking each of us: will you be a witness to my Story? Will you let go of your short-lived moment in the sun of passing circumstances -- in order to realize that just behind all such shadows dwells a Life whose Light never fades?
Will you choose in favor of entering into a Life whose story never ends, and in which fear and failure simply do not exist?
And what must we choose so that we can participate in this Greater Story?
We must choose to let go.
