BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, February 22nd, 2021 by Alan Cohen in DARE TO BE YOURSELF

“Sometimes the greatest gift we can bestow on a friend is to let them go. When the universe is calling for them to move to the next stage of their good, we empower them most meaningfully by supporting them in their move. If we are attached to them being with us, releasing them can be a very difficult and painful experience. But what is the use of fighting against the tide of life? If someone or something has a destiny elsewhere, we hurt ourself by attempting to keep them tied to us.

At such a time we need to remember that there is only love. This person or thing came into our life by the hand of love, and it is by the same hand they leave. We fear to let go only when we do not trust that we will be taken care of without the person or thing we want to hold onto. But we will. Spirit needs to make a space for something new and more wonderful.”

Alan Cohen, in “Dare to Be Yourself”
