Letting go is the greatest thing we can do, and yet it is the challenge for our physical mind, our ego mind, to do so.
It's beautiful to think that everything gets orchestrated to serve us for the deeper meaning of life. When we can allow ourselves to be with a situation to find the purpose, we get to unwrap the gift.
As I was driving on the highway this afternoon, I came upon a kitten dragging itself across the highway in the lane going in the opposite direction. I knew I had to stop, and I quickly pulled over. I ran out to the center lane, and put my hand up to the approaching logging truck to slow down so that I could rescue this kitten. While sobbing uncontrollably, I quickly picked it up and ran back to my car. About that time, a woman had pulled over as she saw the kitten. She said she was on her way to work, and asked if I would be okay to take it. I said yes while cradling it in my arms. I felt its hind legs and they were mangled apparently from a car running over it, and it was trying to drag itself to get out of the way of traffic. The kitten meowed a little, and I put it in the backseat on a blanket.
So many emotions, and so many dimensional layers were happening all at once that I couldn't quite catch my bearings. I called my boyfriend, Carlos, and told him what happened, and he told me to take it to the Animal Hospital Just remember, I was still sobbing uncontrollably. Carlos asked me if I wanted him to meet me so he could drive, and I said no. I knew there was a purpose this kitten was serving for me, and I wanted to find out what it was.
While driving, I said out loud, "It's going to be okay. What is the purpose you serve?" I didn't hear the answer then, but I knew it would be revealed. Carlos had called ahead to the Animal Hospital, and when I arrived they were expecting me. The receptionist took the kitten from my arms, and immediately said, "Its back is broken and we're going to put it to sleep." I was frozen in this statement. I didn't quite know what to do and I just stood there. The receptionist thanked me for bringing it in, and then said, "We'll take care of it from here."
I went outside and cried and cried and cried. There were more tears on the drive home, and then the answers started to come. "The purpose I served for you today was letting go. It's not for you, the ego, to decide or control destiny for anyone, including yourself. Your higher self is always in charge and will lead you to where you need to go. Just let go. You cannot save anyone, including me...it's not for you to decide. I wanted you to know about letting go so I set up this situation so that you could know it. You co-created it with me, and I offered myself to the situation for your highest good. It was my gift to you so please don't look at it as a loss of life, but as a gift, another seed that was planted for you. It was a new birth of awareness. You remember in the book, Mutant Message Down Under, the character needs to learn a lesson about healing and so one of the aboriginies in the book breaks his leg as an offering so that the character understands how healing naturally takes place in the body. This was truly a wonderful gift, and I'm glad you decided to pick me up so you could unwrap the gift."
Once this translation was being downloaded through me then I could understand the purpose that all things serve in my life, and I thanked the kitten for the role it played so that I may know "letting go." I can't know letting go conceptually, I must experience it. So the kitten, and all these people played their parts beautifully so that I may know my true self, my higher self.
I'm letting go of my ego more and more, and I'm so grateful to be the witness for this remarkable event. I need to spend time in "space" to understand from a higher perspective, and I allowed it...not trying to hurry it, but savoring it.
I know my physical mind, my ego mind wanted to fix it, to make it all right in the way that it felt was right. And in this realization, I know that my gift to myself is in letting go, and it will come in the form of people, situations, and even kittens to remember this.
It's amazing that once I could allow the emotions to be there, and ask for the higher purpose and then just let go and allow it to be revealed, then I felt so much better. It's an honoring of the purpose that serves us, and we serve it...it's the same.
Letting go is a process, and I welcome the process in the bigger picture of my life.
