“We give ourselves the luxury and the freedom to feel and think whatever we feel or think. We allow whatever comes; and release whatever goes.” COL bk.2, 19:II
Here we are hearing another way of saying that we remain “in the flow.” We don’t hang on to our thoughts and feelings; we let them drift in and out of our mind and heart. This is the best way to live, because it gives us immediacy, the ability to live in the present.
Letting thoughts and feelings go and come is a luxury. If we can discover how to do it, we will live far better, constantly.
All too often we dam up our thoughts and feelings; we obsess; and we make ourselves miserable. This misery does not have to be. Instead, we can be aware of God’s presence, living through us. We can know that He is able to handle anything that comes up, anything that arises in our daily round.
With this assurance, we walk a green earth.
