Letting Go Now

Letting go of grudges, negative stories, & traumatic events can be hard to do. But it is possible. This story keeps appearing to me through various YouTube Videos. It’s everywhere lately (Month of September 2021). So, I figure I’d tell it to you. It’s a nice way of seeing how easy and how hard it is to let unwanted thoughts go away.

Two Monks, one Lady, a River and the Forest

Part One:

Dressed in Orange robes, two monks set out on a long hike through the forest. The two hiked for a few miles through the dense green forest. They arrive at a bustling greenish brown river, where they encounter a beautiful woman. She says that she has been there for hours, unable to cross the rough river by herself.

Part Two:

Knowing that they are not supposed to touch a woman, the first Monk takes a look at her and crosses the river. The other, asks her name and where she’s from. She responds and asks for his help in crossing the river. With compassion and fortitude Monk number Two picks her up and carries her on his back across the raging river. He stops every 20 feet or so to rest, since it is quite a journey to cross the river with the weight of the woman on his back. He eventually makes it to the other side where he lets the woman down. He says Goodbye and she gives him a very gracious Thank You. He then catches up with Monk One and they continue their hike through the vast forest.

Part Three:

They walk through shrubs, bushes and prickly twigs. One Mile, two miles, three miles. Not talking much, just enjoying nature, listening to the birds and continuing on their journey for the day. Monk Two all the while a bit more happier than Monk One. Monk Two even whistles a sweet little tune here and there as they tread across the the uneven terrain. Somewhere around Mile six, Monk One stops and tells Monk Two to also stop. He looks at him and exclaims: What’s going on here? You know we can’t touch women. And you, You carried that lady all the way across the river. What’s your Problem? Monk Two replies. I haven’t a problem, I was just being nice and helped a lady in distress. It is you who may have a bit of a problem. I dropped the lady off 6 miles ago and you are still carrying her!

The Teaching:

It can be very easy to let things go or as Monk One shows us, quite hard to do this. But as you can see by the story, letting go is the way to go. Let go of old fears, let go of disliking others, let go of negative thoughts, let go of everything that does not serve your higher & highest Good. You’ll feel much happier, freer and sublime. Let Go and Let God take care of Everything for you Now.

Story as told by Huna Das from hearing it on 5 different platforms in the Month of September 2021. Took what I heard and added in a bit of flavor so that your mind could picture the story in your imagination. I do hope it helps you and encourages you to Let Go of any and all unwanted thoughts.

“Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become your character. Watch your character, it becomes your Destiny.”

Everyday is a Go(o)d Day

I Dance in the Riches of all my Wishes

No Fear here, only Faith, Love and Good Cheer

Sweet Nectar of Joy fills my Soul, sour smell of stress does not exist

I’m on the right track, as I step forward Abundantly. Seeing no lack

I Declare Dominion and Authority upon my thoughts and feelings. Keeping the Kingdom wealthy with powerful words of Peace, Love and Happiness

Intention goes, where Energy flows. I send Praise and Good Will to all my Friends and Foes

As the day winds down, I count my blessings, I am Grateful for so many things, my list as vast as the Ocean

Sleeping Calmly to awaken Tomorrow with a Great Big Smile you can see for almost a Mile

Thank You Go(o)d

Challenges Come & Go

The Guest House by Rumi

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Sufi Mystic & Poet, Rumi wrote the Guest House all the way back in the 13th Century. Today it was on the Daily Calm 7/25/21. It reminds us that when challenges come our way, they will pass through and go away. Tomorrow is a Brand New Day. Actually your next moment in time is brand new, it’s up to you, to do what is needed to stay calm, centered and peaceful.

This past Friday, I was complaining to my spiritual teacher about some money issues. He actually got pretty pissed off, because of all that has been taught to me and reminded me to Meditate. (And never speak of lack, because our subconscious minds Don’t differentiate your positive or negative thoughts. So its best to think in abundance).

My instructions for the week were to meditate every evening for 3 minutes. I just did 3 days in a row at 2 x 12 minutes cycles per day. The meditation brings calm, peace and is good for overall health and wellness.

Rumi even goes on to tell us that some challenges, may just be stepping stones to bigger and better opportunities to come our way. Today’s challenge, will be tomorrows victory!

When things feel rough and tumble, take a moment and meditate. It may feel difficult at first, but the more you do it, the more peace meditation will provide.

Some Tips: The Daily Calm app provides a new meditation every day. It only takes 10-12 minutes. This app is my favorite. And it has an emergency SOS meditation, that I do when work feels like it’s too frantic and frustrating. I would recommend the Daily Calm App.

Or go on YouTube and choose a guided meditation. There are so many to choose from. Something for every challenge, difficulty or dilemma.

It’s in the silence that our best ideas are produced. There’s no right or wrong way to meditate. I would recommend to “Just Do It” Daily if you can. Don’t even worry about sitting perfectly or anything like that. Just close your eyes, listen and breathe.

I’m actually still a bit wound up from this past week and will stop writing and dial up another meditation. This time, my 2nd all time favorites-Yoga Nidra by Brenda Kwon. No matter how many house mates invade my brain, Yoga Nidra is a great go-to stress reliever. Try and do 20-45 minutes if you can. I guarantee Yoga Nidra will work. I even did it at the dentist one time and didnt even feel the new tooth being inserted into my mouth.

Yoga Nidra, The Daily Calm and even the quick and effective SOS will provide relief for whatever it is your mind thinks is happening. Remember, it is us that chooses our thoughts, not our boss, partner or surroundings. Give Meditation a try. Be Grateful to be alive. It’s a precious gift we are given.
