Let go - for RE

Good advise for those on the RE path.

Let go of that nagging feeling that something could go wrong. For whatever may happen, you can always choose a way to move forward.

Let go of your resentment and anger over things that are beyond your control. Do the very best with where you are, with what you have, and that will be more than enough.

Let go of the pain you carry from things that happened long ago. Allow yourself to experience the glorious freedom of forgiveness.

Let go of the needs that you don't really need, that keep your life so anxious and complicated. Find real fulfillment not in getting, but in being.

Let go of the regrets, the disappointments and distress. Choose to follow the very best of the possibilities that beckon you forward.

Let go of all the excuses you have for not living fully. Give beauty and meaning to the life and the world that you're in right now.

-- Ralph Marston

Sometimes death is not as tragic as not knowing how to live. This man knew how to live--and how to make others glad they were living. - Jack Benny at Nat King Cole's funeral

Way too optimistic for my tastes :P I save out of a sense of accomplishment and pessimism. 8)

Nice post.* It is exactly what I needed to hear.* Thanks.
Lieutenant Dan got me invested in some kind of fruit company. So then I got a call from him, saying we don't have to worry about money no more. And I said, that's good! One less thing.* * * * ** Forrest Gump
