A new beginning needs a focus in the present to create a better future, if the mind is busy in churning the past, how could one focus in the present… the best rescue is two words “let go”, yes let go and travel light. While packing the bags for a holiday trip, you would prefer to carry only necessary and important things, similarly while traveling the terrain called life, why to burden mind unnecessarily with meaningless and thoughts.
A saint and his teachings
Once, a saint called his seekers to gather in a hall and asked to bring potatoes with them, everyone came and asked the reason of bringing the potatoes, the saint said, write names of those people on each potato whom they hate, jealous, angry and hurt. Everyone did the same, and made their bags of potatoes. Later, he asked to carry the bag along with them, no matter wherever they are going and report to him the same day, next week. Everyone was surprised but they somehow agreed to do so. As the days passed, the weight and the stinking smell of potatoes started bothering them, they just wanted to throw them in the dustbin. Finally, everyone gathered and briefed their experience to the saint.
Saint said, “When you can’t carry the burden of potatoes, then what is the need to burden your mind with grudges and past hurt. they stinks your mind and pollute the environment.
Let go all the grudges, past hurt and limiting beliefs.
Let go is a blessing where you free the mind from waste and ceaseless chains of thoughts and drama which your own mind is witnessing, it seems to be difficult at times but the only thing which clears your mind from dark clouds of negativity is to let go the bad feelings so that a new ray of positivity can come into your life.
