When things go against us, we are sometimes uprooted and devastated. A lot of our beliefs seem to be fragile and we find ourselves questioning them. At least, that's what happened to me. I simply couldn't find the answers to the numerous "Whys?" that came surging into my mind. It was as if I was pulled into a whirlpool, from which escape seemed to be impossible. I felt as if I was doomed. And I could do nothing but let go…I let go…
Then a strange sense of peace took over. I realized that there are many things that I could never understand or find the answers to. But, if I let go, it is possible to pick oneself up and move ahead. I found that the more I had questioned, the more I was pulled into the depth. The moment I let go of the questions and my fight against the tides, I found I could swim up towards the shore.
I realized that not all answers could be found instantly. Sometimes, it is equally necessary to let go the questions to find the answers. And in that calmness it is possible that the answers will emerge from us. It is not an instantaneous process. Sometimes the answers come later than one would like. Nevertheless, it comes. And with it, the answer brings a better comprehension of things or the ability to withstand.
Of course, there are still unanswered questions. And even now I fall into the depth of darkness. But I remember to let go. I believe that sooner or later I will find the answers. I only need to be open to receive them. And I am able to see things in a new light. That gives me hope!
