Open up, Let go

If you had to summarize what the essence of living is, what was your answer?

We do so many things, get lost in so many responsibilities and projects….a year has passed, another year has passed…a decade….

Is this it? Are you joyful, whole, serene and abundant?

You know, the fastest way to catapult yourself into joy, wholeness and freedom is: to let go. Let go of what is not in alignment with who you are.

Typically that is easy said but difficult to do, because we want to first know what comes after the let go? Letting go is so powerful because it frees up from inauthentic stuff.

The more inauthentic stuff you carry or tolerate, the less your life makes you joyful. A high price to pay!

For letting go to succeed you first need to open up. Opening up means to be willing to not being right, not having a position, not maintaining familiar grounds.

Opening up literally opens you up: to new possibilities, new life, new options, new people, new activities, new insights, new perspectives and new horizons.

It’s like you open the windows in a dumb room that you have been living in for a long time. Everything starts expanding in you when you open up, like a flower receives new life when it gets fresh water and sunlight.

Open up in your relationship, at work, in your circles, to the world, to new ideas, to adventure!

Let go of what isn’t “you” anymore. Sell your stuff on Ebay, give it to charity or just throw it away. Why are you holding on to it?

If you want to fly you need to be light!

Same for all your inner possessions. Let them go.

Do you experience fear of opening up and letting go? Let your fear go first. You think that’s not possible? Let go of that doubt first. See? It works.

When you decide to let go of something and anything is in the way, just first let go of what’s in the way. It’s as simple as that.

Our obsession with security is our invisible grave. Most people have buried themselves a long time ago.

Awaken yourself. Open up. Let go. Fly.


“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” – Helen Keller
