I went to an special Tai Chi class today. The title of it was “Let Go.” What a novel idea. One I haven’t heard of before (giggle.) Holding on is a really big issue with human beings and no wonder. We come in empty-handed and leave the same way. No problem there. The problems arise in-between. The house with a mortgage doesn’t concern a newborn baby or someone on their deathbed. You’d think we would learn to focus on the things that count. But then we wouldn’t be human.
Being human is sort of like thinking you are God (or wishing you were). Spiritual teachings say that we really are God. So then what’s the problem?
The problem is us. “We have seen the enemy and he is us.” (Pogo)
So we begin to fight the foe.
This is where Dr. Phil would throw out the poser, “How’s that workin’ for ya?”
Clearly it isn’t, or we wouldn’t need extra classes in how to let go.
When I get a better handle on the issue, I will probably be on my deathbed or getting ready to take a new birth. A girl can dream….
