Let go, gently…

Letting go is a deep pain. It takes a lifetime to heal from certain memories, moments, experiences that stay with us, even after moving on.
Talking about detachment, to be like water on Lotus leaves is always easy. But we are all humans with a myriad of emotions, feelings swirling within…One song, one fragrance, a scribbling found in an old diary, opening a trinket box – just anyone these could leave our eyes bedewed with tears… The past gate-crashes… It needn’t be a romantic relationship to go through emotional turbulence in letting go. It could be any bond, watered with love…

Whatever bond we share, it is OKAY to love deeply, with all our hearts! We do become emotionally unstable at times. We hurt, in the name of loving, that might overwhelm the one who is loved. We get hurt, being ignored, our love is taken for granted, or being used by fairweather friends. We are never prepared for heartbreaks, partings, losses…

When there is a crack on the glass, bitterness that seems to last,  pauses, long silences never fail to sting! Memories surface, transporting us to the sounds of laughter, giggles, to the texture of brittle tears, scents of joy, love, celebrations, and to all the colors of nourishing togetherness…
Will they allow the ‘letting go’ happen, like a cakewalk? Life smirks and winks…
The more we try to let go, the more our heart holds tight the emotions…

But how long is the struggle?! Isn’t letting go, and moving on a sane, and peaceful way to live?! Don’t we all long for that one big leap to let go, hushing the heart?! Featherlight mind is a healthy side effect for those who have mastered the art of letting go!

Maybe, taking life as it comes, being in the now, living life one day at a time, we can learn to let go with less hurt, and more wisdom.
Maybe, we can learn from the flowers…
Unfriending their fears, doubts, and the ‘whys?!’, to just bloom, absorb the sunshine days, welcome the rain, or storm, and let go as it slides and drips from each petal…
Hosting the dewdrops, embracing all the climates of life, with an unfading smile, and wither…
Sigh! To be a flower, to blossom, and let go, is not easy to a human whose life is constantly hounded by, “If only, and What if?!”…

To let go of memories of loved ones who are not in our lives anymore, either cruelly taken away by death, or cluelessly orphaned by love, is lifelong learning…
We sometimes find it difficult to let go of even old furniture, an old cycle, crockery, or clothes, for instance, attaching so many emotions to them. Despite knowing how unpredictable and ephemeral life, is!

The tighter we hold, the deeper the ache…
It’s a quagmire…

Let’s live. Love. Fall. Rise. Realize. Let go, gently…
Let the love that teaches us to hold, guide us to let go, too…
