Let go of letting go

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

I realize it has been a long while since I have been in contact with many of you.  The summer holidays coupled with my decision to upgrade my computer means that my communication systems have been down for many weeks.  How are you all doing?  I have missed sending you my musings and reflections as we enter into a new season.  Thus I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a new spiritual teacher that I have been following recently: Jeff Foster.

One of his latest Facebook posts offers a gentle respite from the inner self critic that can convince us that there is something wrong.

Jeff Foster writes:

“Stop trying to heal yourself, fix yourself, even awaken yourself. Let go of letting go. Instead, bow deeply to yourself as you actually are. Be here. Honour the present scene in the movie of your life. Your pain, your sorrow, your doubts, your deepest longings, your fearful thoughts, are not mistakes, and they aren’t asking to be healed. They are asking to be held. Here, now, lightly, in the loving arms of present awareness…” 

– Jeff Foster

If his words resonate with you, do take a look at his website and writings.  Developing a more compassionate and loving relationship with ourselves not only helps us but those around us.

As always your comments are very welcome.

I look forward to connecting with you soon.

Much love,

Vivianne
