Move on

When something becomes an effort and there is no joy, when we deep down know that something isn’t what we want, then it is time to let go and move on from that thing or person or whatever situation.

Of course, our mind will get us to believe that it is us or we have done something wrong, or we must try harder and so on. We cling on to a job, or friendship or anything, hoping to ‘fix’ it or to keep it as it was. But all things are temporary.

Things or people are meant to be or not. They can come and go from our lives or be there forever. A thing or a person may serve a purpose for a period, sometimes for a very short time and sometimes for much longer and then we have grown or evolved, or they have, and it is time to let go and move on. There is no reason for it, it just is and if we accept it, then we let go of pain and suffering within. We no longer blame ourselves.

We do not need to make an evaluation of the thing or the person, no need to search for a reason, there is no need for judgement, it is just a feeling from within that tells us that it is no longer suiting our journey and it is time to just move on and let go. However, the mind and its ego look to hold on or to convince or to make us do more or there is guilt.

Just be at peace with all that is, just accept that it is no longer for us and choose a new direction, a new start and always focus on our inner wisdom and intuition…trust it and just be.

Can’t rely on things

There is nothing bad about enjoying things, things that bring us joy and make our moment better. However, if we attach something more to it, then we will always be left disappointed.

Our inner peace is a state that is not affected by anything external unless we choose it to be so.

When we get the new car, the bigger house, the bigger salary etc, if we have attached our fulfilment to reaching this goal and happiness, then there will always be something more and more and more that we can get and own.

If we are content and at peace, before the new ‘thing’ comes, then we are more than likely going to be after it has arrived, as the ‘thing’ is of no consequence to our state, again unless we choose it. If we are not content and not at peace, the same applies, we will not be content or at peace after whatever ‘thing’ arrives.

Just have joy as a permanent option within, silencing the mind and ego, and things can add to that joy, but like every form, they are temporary and not be relied upon for our happiness.
