Wanting to be something other then what we are. Wanting change. Desire of being something different and wishing we were. We can change our habits, our feelings, our outlook, with care and practice and desire. We can change our bodies and minds. Can we change our nature? The way we are fundamentally? Massive life changes do occur and change who we are and where we are going. Change is possible but not easy. So we still have the ego and the self and want it to be different and many times we do not change. why, because we continue to hold onto the self, continue to identify with the idea of who we are and not be the reality of who we are. So in letting go of the self completely we let go of the ego and expectations and opening within us at that moment is the possibility of change and being who we are.
It is in the letting go. Let go of old ideas. Let go of past hurts. Don't repeat them. Learn from them. Grow through them but let them go. Let them not dictate to us today how we walk through life. Let it pass. Do not pick up those stones and cast them over the shoulder again. Pick them up and drop them at your feet to pass on by.
