We often do not think that there is anything helpful or positive in acceptance, letting go, allowing things to happen. We think that it is a negative action— giving up or throwing in the towel. However, it takes strength and courage to let go. This is because you have to give up control— and you need to trust that all is well, that you are ok— even if you are not sure what will happen next.
So, when you encounter a situation that is causing you suffering, try taking a breath, step back to get a larger picture, and allow the situation to take its place in your journey. This will result in more stillness and peace in your life—little by little.

My Blog is about how you can discover your own Pathways to Stillness, and why that is so valuable to your life. We will explore what it means to lose and regain our sense of “our story” in the midst and aftermath of loss—negative beliefs about aging and how we can make them more positive, and the many benefits reaped by creating a refuge of stillness within.
