Why your attachment to the good holds you back?

Every spring, tulips bloom with nourishment from rain, sunshine, and nutrients in the soil. There is only one single bloom per bulb. Over the course of two weeks, the single bloom stretches high towards the sun and opens up, radiating all its beauty to be seen by passersby.

Yet, the bloom doesn’t stay forever.

One by one, the petals start falling, and the gorgeous and beautiful flower dissipates into the wind.

Have you ever tried to hold on to the one fantastic memory? Maybe it was that one out-of-this-world party where you laughed so hard you peed your pants times and was hoping no one would notice. Perhaps it was that one elegant and tongue-tingling meal that made your skin feel goosebumps from the tantalizing spices. Maybe it was the gaze from a lover that saw into the depths of your soul.

Sometimes you cling to these moments the way a mother protects her child in a dark alley. You hold on so tight, thinking you’ll never have that breath of joy again. You live in the past, longing for each memory to come back into your reality.

Yet, living in the past, whether good or bad, does not serve you. Longing for anything is an attachment. It’s the tethered string from a kite that sweeping up into the sky, yet you hold on with all your might not to let it go.

Letting go of the good allows for expansion to occur. A tulip does not hold on to its petals for eternity. A tulip release brings the nutrients back into the core and then multiplies for the following season.

What if today you tasted the air and let it wash over you with glee?
Then with the next breath, said thank you, then let it go.

What if today your smile brightened another person’s soul and made a stranger feel loved?
Then with the next breath, said thank you, then let it go.

What if today, seeing a vibrant butterfly float in the wind made your soul sing?
Then with the next breath, said thank you, then let it go.

A simple thank you acknowledge the wonders and awe in your life. The release and letting go allow you to receive more.

Let go of the good and allow expansion to happen. Permit yourself to receive even more amazingness and awe in your life.

It’s in the mystery, the unexpected, that subtle surprises and joy will astound you. In the unknown, the universe will grace you with more than you ever imagined.

Wishing you a joyful, loving, and prosperous day!
