Let it be

The majority of us are brought up to fight until the blood drips from our fingernails, and we almost can't seem to stand up anymore. The thought of giving up equals death in many ways. You just don't do that.

When things get messy, we fight it out to the bitter end, even if we end up taking ourselves down in the process. And our surroundings look at us in deep admiration saying: "You are a true fighter."

My life changed profoundly the day I understood how to replace the thought of giving up with the idea of letting go. The second something gets entangled, I let it be. I let go, so the solution and the many helpers can appear. That way I get a break and I can open up to the answer.

Let it be. Just let it be.
