LETTING GO OF THE PAST
Preparing to Let Go
It’s time to let go of these hurts.
Letting go is a very necessary step to closure. It is your choice to either hold onto the page or to choose to let go.
WHY LET GO?
“If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.”
― C. JoyBell C.
“Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.”
― Steve Maraboli
When you fight the truth of the way your situation is, you create a state of fear, upset, and tunnel vision. You destroy your ability to find solutions and tend to make your situation worse. To handle a situation, you need effective action, not resisting. Resisting keeps you from seeing the action you need to take. Letting go is the internal process that removes the resisting so you can discover what you need to do.
How to let go and flow with life
To see an example of letting go, find a time in your life when you were actively resisting something. Then, for whatever reason, you stopped the resisting and said, “The heck with it.” You stopped fighting your situation and moved on with your life.
Notice what happened the moment you let go of the resisting. You got your peace of mind back. The fear and upset disappeared. You also saw everything differently. Everything looked different because the tunnel vision was gone. Instead of 3 degrees of possibility, you had 360 degrees of hope. So it is with this Memorial service.
This is why we have provided this following service. Listen to each video or audio piece. Pray. Meditate about what you are saying goodbye to by letting go. Ultimately, celebrate!
