So many emotions to handle.
So little time to do anything else.
So much time spent
To look through, sort, analyze, categorize, organize
And store the emotions.
He said, she said, he did, they did, she didn’t do
They shouldn’t have, I wouldn’t have, if they didn’t do
I wouldn’t be feeling this way
Why don’t you let it all go?
Let’s de-clutter your emotional warehouse
Let’s not save anything
Let’s throw it all out
So that you can start from scratch
But, No, I can’t let go!
That is my life
All my life’s events, and people, and my memories
Memories that hurt you?
Make you sad,
Make you regret,
Make you upset?
Oh, I see, but there are good ones, too!
The memories that I cherish,
The highlights of my life
Ones that I remember with a smile
The ones that I can’t forget…
I have something to say
Listen carefully so that you can understand
The memories which are the happiest,
Are the ones that hold you hostage.
Those are the times that you long for
The moments that you want to re-create
The moment he looked into your eyes,
The moment you stood up there proudly
The moment, one day you saw what you saw,
And something moved inside of you.
Which created a sensation in your body,
That got attached to the memory of what you saw.
For the rest of your life
Your body longed for the same sensation
And mindlessly, you searched,
Hoping, wishing for the similar people
To create what once was magical.
That was a moment of your own creation
With your thoughts.
And nothing else.
So let it go
Let it all go
Let’s open room
Let’s make space
There are many more memories to create
If you want to
There are many more unlived moments
In your life
But if your space is full
And if you keep focusing on what once was
How can “what will be” come to you?
How can you see “what is”?
Look, your warehouse is changing already
Let’s pull back more curtains
And open the windows, too.
Let more sunshine in
Do not be afraid
Yes, there is dust on the old things you have kept for so
Yes, it is overwhelming to see all at once.
All that you thought was important
All that you were afraid to uncover and see.
Do not regret the time passed
It is not late,
It is never late to let go
And let the future come to you
For all the things you ever wanted to be
Ready to release all what was
Ready to move forward
Ready to start FREE
Let’s turn the light to the dark corners
Nothing hides lurking in the dungeons of your mind anymore
Let’s clean and air out
Let’s play music and dance
Let’s sing songs and laugh hard
Let’s laugh hard until waterfalls of tears
Roll down your cheeks
And tears wash away all your fears
Then your heart becomes light
So light and so happy
You have just created a new sensation
See how easy that was
See how you can do it many more times
Your heart starts singing now
Sending messages to your mind
It is all good, it is all divine
I think I will be fine
But my mind thinks this will pass
And I will be miserable again
It tells my heart to settle down
And don’t be so excited, and so happy
These are all illusions, life isn’t so easy
Which one do you want to listen to then?
Your mind knows a lot
But it wasn’t taught to sing
It has fears of the unknown
Because it knows so much
But it doesn’t know what it doesn’t know
It only knows what was taught, what was seen, what was lived
There is so much more that it yet hasn’t experienced.
If it refuses how can it ever learn?
Be patient with your mind
It took care of you so many years
It kept you away from trouble- it thinks!
It helped you survive in the world the way it is.
But there is more to learn and to live
It doesn’t know “love”
So, be gentle with it.
Have a talk with your mind
Tell it all the things you are grateful about that it did.
But also tell it that it is OK to get your heart’s opinion
It is OK to let you play.
You never know
Maybe one day
When you let it all go
And learn to let things be
You will be able to see what I see
Then come out and play
Fly away with me!
