Let go and Live

Julia Chi Taylor

Letting go of all we don’t need frees us to fully live – here in this incredible paradigm.

Free from tension

Free from fear

As our true self,

Living in the moment and the next and the next and the next

As awareness 

We are awareness

The overriding desire of the individual is to return to our Self.

We all want to ‘Be happy’ – Feel happy’

And for years – lifetimes  even – we seek this outside ourselves in the form of our achievements, our accomplishments, our relationships…

The initial feelings of joy, when we ‘get’ these things, eventually fades away and is often replaced by more yearning and wanting – for more.

The yearning we feel within us to fall in love, to be seen, to be successful is truly a yearning to let go of the ‘wanting’ – and to return home to our true self – the peace within us, the stillness, the silence from which all flows.

When let go of yearning and the tension that comes with that, we can discover again our true nature

From this place the external  experiences, relationships and all we ‘do’ and ‘have’ and ‘are’ -reflects this inner ease, and the enjoyment of the external becomes part of the ease within.

In letting go of the ‘wanting’ – to find happiness – the dis ease within falls away as the recognition of the true self emerges 

Our individual minds yearn and actively seek, but when we let go, we discover that we are part of the infinite consciousness, all that is…

All is connected, all is one and the same.

And so when we truly experience, that our experiences are the outer reflecting our the inner landscape, then we discover, that through letting go of the yearning and seeking, we are lead back home to the ease within – to our true self.

We are often lead back through the reflections we seemingly see outside us: in the form of a teacher, a book a lecture, that may appear and speaks to us and points us back to our self

Everything is consciousness

As humans we feel that the outside is different to what is going on inside us.

But they are one and the same, 

Our thoughts and feelings within are reflected outside, in what seems to be the solid world or ‘reality’

But one is all and all are one

We are not separate

We are The World

A brand new day

Never have we lived this day


I listen to the sounds around me

I take them inside me and this moment expands into infinity

As I write this blog, I remember it is the birth day of two friends

I have forgotten exactly how many years they have been here in this incarnation!

I have trouble remembering my own years now!

But it doesn’t matter at all, when we stay with the day, the new day

Brand new

It is all there is – and in each moment we are ageless

We are souls on a human journey – yes we are in a body that ages and dies

But our spirit is ageless and eternal

I bought some tickets last week for an exhibition at the Natural History museum, to go to during the Christmas holiday…

I realised that I haven’t been there since I was a child.

I bought two tickets, an adult one for Anadi and a Senior one for me!

I’ve missed out all the adult years… 

The last ticket I had was a child one

In a flash they are gone – those earth years – and this body has changed

A different form entirely to the one of that child

That one has gone!

Bodies change throughout our lifetime – and then they decay and die

As bodies always do

But this moment spreads out into infinity

Spirit never dies

And in each moment when we stop and listen 

When we look around, close our eyes and take the whole room, the whole town or city inside us – the whole of the world and all of humanity with all its pain and joy and feel it all deep within us

We can experience the wholeness – and that we are one…

There is no separation

We feel the essence of us in every other soul – the part that was never born and never dies

And know

We are the world
