Letting go

When I first came across Dr. David Hawkins, I fell in love. The first thing I read was “Power versus Force.” I have to say for the first time in my life the beliefs I had made sense. Who is Dr. David Hawkins?

He is the psychiatrist, probably the world’s expert on researching the concept of consciousness and a spiritual teacher.

I have always believed that naming or having a God is entirely irrelevant. There is a power in the universe which is the same power for all human beings. We are all connected in the energy of this power.

Yet, when I came to read “Letting go – The Pathway Surrender,” it was way out there even for me! I attempted to read it on numerous occasions and failed. The sensible option would have been to muscle test why I couldn’t get past page 50. There were two possibilities.

The first possibility was I didn’t need to read it. In the second possibility which I knew in my heart to be the case was the fact I couldn’t face it. I wasn’t ready to let go!

<H2>Acknowledging our smallness</H2>
It takes a great deal of courage and self honesty to see the Smallness within ourselves. By accepting that the human condition has an element of negativity we acknowledge it is part of our experience. Once we accept this, we can let it go. When I couldn’t actually read the book, I wasn’t actually ready to let my ego go. I was intellectually, in practice, it wasn’t going to happen I wasn’t ready for the change.

The pathway to peace, real peace, is allowing our inner self to shine through.

“Be the change you want to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi.

Mahatma Gandhi lived during the time we accepted colonialism as normal. It was acceptable to think of some human beings are subnormal. In fact, it was the only way we could justify slavery. How can you justify enslaving someone who is your equal?

Mahatma Gandhi understood David Hawkins philosophy. Because we are all part of the collective consciousness on an energetic level we heal something in ourselves we heal it for everything in the universe. Quite literally by changing ourselves we are able to change the world.
The healing process
As we learn to love ourselves healing occurs on the inside, which brings about healing on the outside which brings about expansion into the universe.

The letting go technique is a pragmatic system allowing us to let go of our attachments. In simplistic terms, this means we can become free from emotional attachments.
The building of our thoughts
Every feeling we have arises from thousands of thoughts. When we live our lives trying to escape from our feelings the suppressed energy creates distress which will eventually result in illness.

It is one thing believing as I do that all illness comes from emotional pain and denying our spirituality. It is another to accept that that denial blocks our spiritual growth and any success we could achieve in life.

At the moment I am only a health kinesiology student, but it’s still possible to see by simple muscle testing, that suppressed emotions overflow into the body’s autonomic nervous system. Examples of these unconscious controls are the productions of hormones, temperature regulations, and control of our bodies heart rate. All of these things go on, on a subconscious level within our bodies. We don’t have to remember to breathe or pump blood around our bodies.

Yes, we begin to let go we can see an improvement in their lives around us. Not that we have set out to change other people, but the positive change in us affects those around us. It’s rather like throwing a pebble into a pond. The ripples extend much further out than you imagine
Reducing the Conflict around Us
In general, there will be less conflict in all our relationships because the elimination of negative blocks stops self sabotaging behavior. We depend less on intellectual knowledge and more on sentient knowledge.

Once we become less dependent on these negative feelings, we realize the more positive aspects of our nature. We become less hostile and aggressive and more outgoing and more loving. We are not holding onto guilt and shame.

Letting go of these negative emotions brings contentment and peace that can only be expressed as joy.

We Become More Limitless

Later we can let go of our perceived limitations because we have understood that it is only negativity that creates artificial barriers. We have no limitations we can achieve whatever it is we want to achieve.

Letting go of negativity is one of the most useful tools we have at our disposal. It allows us to reach our spiritual goals and develop into the limitless people that we truly are. It creates a sense of enlightenment in those around us because we raise their level of energy.

Again we have not set out to change anyone else. We can only be responsible for our own change, but any increase in positivity affects everyone around us.

I have no doubt that extraterrestrial beings looking down on us rather envy us. We get in such an angst! They must think us, so comical. We watch so many religious people follow spiritual pathways and yet we see hardly anyone realise an ultimate truth.

Our Very Confusion Is Our Salvation

It is our confusion, which is our humanness and our hope. If you are confused you are still free! Life is not about finding the answers but by looking at the basis of the problem and unravelling it.

The mechanism of surrender is simple, it doesn’t involve any dogma or belief system. It’s based on understanding yourself. It works for spiritual people, non-spiritual people, believers and nonbelievers.

You make yourself safe by freeing yourself from disillusionment. You work out how your mind has been programmed and your belief systems. You are your own guru, your own teacher.

What you are searching for is already a part of yourself, it has been a part of yourself since time began. Letting go, doesn’t mean acquiring new beliefs or new ideas.

It is already yours deep within yourself. It may have been buried so deep you can’t even remember it ever being there. No matter how deep it is hidden it is there waiting to be uncovered in all its glory. What you’re looking for is your own inner feelings and experiences.
