Heart to Heart 36

Non-attachment and Freedom

Universal principle #15

Our perceived need to hold on to anything or anyone demonstrates our belief in shortage and personal incompleteness. Holding on to anything—people or possessions—blocks the flow of love through us thereby reducing the joy of our experience with the person or object. Holding onto what we have also inhibits new people and new things, along with the new experiences they bring, from coming into our lives. As we open our hearts, feel our state of Oneness and expand our trust in the natural abundance of the Universe, we give ourselves and everyone else the gift of freedom.

I was counseling a person one time about relationships, and used this analogy.   Suppose their was this guy looking for his soul mate.  I asked him to describe that person.  He said she would be loving and caring and have integrity about her life. And she would be about five foot six, blond hair, blue eyes and a beautiful smile.  One day at the office he met a lovely brunette lady who he hit it off with.  She asked him to go out to dinner with her.  He refused, because in his mind she did not fit the description of his soul mate.  It turns out if he had accepted her invitation; he would have discovered that their server was a five foot six, single, blond, blue eyed woman with a gorgeous smile with all the intangible life qualities he desired in a partner.  He was holding on to his own idea about how what his potential soul mate might be.  Had he followed the invitation of his work mate he would have met the woman of his dreams. The lesson here is say yes to Universe.  We do not know how our life will unfold.

Right now you may want to create something special in your life.  Here is my advice.  Make an agreement with Universe.  Universe has all knowledge.  We have limited knowledge.  Tell Universe in your limited knowledge that you are going to take a particular action. If Universe does not want you to take that action; it is it’s responsibility to create another alternative action or path to follow.  Universe is always on purpose and you are a Divine spark of Eternal Oneness. This would be called sweet surrender by John Denver. Here are the lyrics:

Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
Traveled by many, remembered by few
Lookin’ for something that I can believe in
Lookin’ for something that I’d like to do with my life
There’s nothin’ behind me and nothin’ that ties me to
Something that might have been true yesterday
Tomorrow is open, right now it seems to be more than enough
To just be here today, and I don’t know
What the future is holdin’ in store
I don’t know where I’m goin’ I’m not sure where I’ve been
There’s a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
My life is worth the livin’, I don’t need to see the end
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air
Surrendering to Oneness or Universe is one of the most powerful actions you can take.  We do not know all the answers and when we open up to Limitlessness our lives can shine!  From my heart to yours, Thomas
