Time to let go…

This blog might sound an extension of an already written experience but I wanted to put it down to reinforce the learning for myself.

The knife which we had been facing for quite some time hit us in full force yesterday, tearing us apart. A one-liner from the authority saying that the validity of our programs have expired…’The End’…It is true that we were given an inkling regarding this imminent blow some days back, but we were clinging on to the thin thread of hope, the thinnest of a thread which finally broke under pressure today. It is hard to accept that all the work we had put into it, the time spent on assignments, on research, money spent throughout the course, have been for nothing. My classmates are planning to pursue the matter even now. But I wonder whether it is time to let go…

‘There is a time for everything’ says the Bible. There is a time to eat, to love, to weep, to laugh, to tear apart and even to sew together. I wonder whether this is the time for me to let go…

Let go of the anger towards the authorities…Image

Let go of the pain of the cancellation of our plans…

Let go of the sadness of non-completion…

Let go of the attachment towards the degree I so wished to have…

Let go of the desire to achieve…

In short, let go of everything…

I find my strength and support in the words of the Mother “We should be very tranquil” (Agenda, vol 13, pg 377)

Difficult, but not impossible…!

One thought on “Time to let go…

  1. The quote from the Mother is perfect. And your last line – “Difficult but not impossible” says it all. Perhaps it is time to let go….let go of at least some plans and expectations. And letting go comes with pain, at least initially. My thoughts and prayers are with you and others.
