September 13th -
Today, we let people be, we allow them their own decisions. We can extend love to them without feeling any need to govern behavior. Connections grown stronger as we stop clinging and let people do as they will. We can release any need to judge or to punish others. We need desire only good to come to all. Sometimes old hurts come to mind and then it is a challenge to practice this principle, but we can always forgive again. We can extend forgiveness to all who need it, beginning with ourselves. As this practice unfolds, the need for control fades. We find it easy to accept that people will do as they will. We no longer feel threatened, loved ones don’t need to be with us every moment. We let them go to be and do what they desire. Thinking in this way we become able to be happy for the happiness of others.
