LET IT GO.........



There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you: let them walk.

I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone. When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.

The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19]

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.

Let them go.

And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead.

You've got to know when it's dead.

You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something. I've got the gift of good-bye. It's the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay.

Let them go!!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains . . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents . . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you have a bad attitude . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you're feeling depressed and stressed . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you need to . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

Let the past be the past Forget the former things. GOD is doing a new thing for 2007!!!

LET IT GO!!!

Get Right or Get Left. think about it, and then . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

I love it :) Letting go is so hard, especially for the nafs. They love to cling and hang on and dwell and are jealous and spiteful. Letting go of all that is part of the Sufi path.

Thank you for the post :)

Ya Haqq!

O, this is so so touching - letting it go is the real test of our humanity and the power of Love and mercy isnide us..
Indeed, this is the Sufi path -
I am feeling so consoled and comfortable after reading these lines.

dear shree,
As they say,the road to happiness is having a bad memory.Your enlightening post just proves it.Its the abandoning of all our bitter memories that free us from the bondages of sufferings.
You are right sweety lets join hands and LET IT GO..
God bless you.

In Hinduism when you cremate a body the last thing you do is to break the pitcher in which you bring cold water to cool and douse the burning pyre - AND THEN YOU ARE NOT TO LOOK BACK.The person belongs to time and history then.Letting go is so esy yet so difficult.
In life one has to let go so many people - your love, your children, your family and so on and on.But life does not stop for anyone. It flows on. Ultimately you are alone - came alone and will go alone - from HIM to HIM.
