At times it seems difficult to release emotions that do not help us on our path. One visual image is to simply allow them to fall away. Uh, there is resentment again. Go away and don’t bother me. I don’t have time for you. Does it need to be more difficult than that? Not really. We brush them aside and allow them to fall away like unwanted dust without so much as a moment’s thought.
The key, if there is one, is to recognize the emotion and discern if it helps or hinders, and then simply discard it like a television show you’ve already watched. In slang language, the phrase that comes to mind is: “Been there, done that, seen that, not going there again.” Let go and let it fall away.
Analyzing, criticizing, and scrutinizing can work against us and keep us considering, replaying, rethinking, and worst of all, judging our actions and our motives. Let it fall away. If you need more help, turn to your Higher Power for assistance. Ask for the ability to forgive, let go, and live in the present moment. Assert your power over the past and don’t let it influence your present state of mind.
