To Let Go is to Open a Door

“To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.”

‘People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.”  Thich Nhat Hanh.

Most of us are controlled by fear, in one form or another. As much as we try to deny it , fear has an effect on all of us. The fear is greater for some than others, while some may be afraid to come out of the house after dark , or be afraid to drive on the roads for fear of being killed in a so-called accident, for most it takes much more than this to arouse our deepest fears.

Many go to extremes to conquer fear, such as sky diving, or traveling deep into the Amazon in search of native tribes and wildlife, confronting them to conquer whatever fear they may have. The list can go on and on , and in this sense we could never confront and conquer all our fears, as soon as we conquer one fear, another arises.

The only true way to truly conquer fear is to put our life in control of a higher power. This doesn’t mean to give up control of our life, it just means to let go and go on. We still have control over our actions and our destiny.

When we let go, we still chart our course in life, however, we leave the path and direction to a higher power. In this sense we are always given choices and the option to choose which path to take. We fear nothing because we believe no harm can come to us and every event in life leads to a higher learning.

We learn the soul is indestructable and we can’t die, at least our soul doesn’t. We quit looking backwards and having regrets of things left undone. We realize we made the best decision  based on the information we had at the time. Everything happens for a reason, and sometimes it can take years for the final outcome based on a decision we made earlier in life.

The path to a better life.

When we overcome fear, we let go and let be, realizing there is a divine plan for us that we chose at the time of birth. We don’t always see the big picture and need to leave it up to divine intelligence to know the final outcome and the direction to go, step by step.

As we conquer our fears, our wisdom increases because the channel  is opened wider and wider for the connection of our soul to divine spirit.
