part 2. unpause.

Letting go.  Letting go.  Letting go.  And for so long, I have thought about it and written about it and thought about it some more.  And I thought I had an understanding of why it was necessary.  Flow and moving forward and all that.  And today there was a new word added to this understanding.  HOPE.  There isn’t one reason for letting go, there are many.  And today, I realized that if I don’t let go, I stay directly attached to something I see as a problem in myself.  And by staying connected to that problem, I keep my focus there and after a while I only see the past.  Either as good or as bad, depending.  But still the past.  Letting go, allows the future in.  The present in.  And that’s where the hope is.  HOPE.  There is no hope in the past.  It’s done.  But there can be.  Has to be hope in now.  And in tomorrow.  There has to be.  That’s where the changes take place.  Dear God, please let me begin to live this.
