Letting Go

Once there was a free bird. She floated in the sky, catching midges for lunch, swam in the summer rain trickles, and was like many other birds.
But she had a habit: every time some event occurred in her life, whether good or bad, the bird picked up a stone from the ground. Every day she sorted out her stones, laughed remembering joyful events, and cried remembering the sad ones.
A bird always took the stones with her, whether she was flying in the sky or walking on the earth, she never forgot about them. The years have passed, and free bird got a lot of stones, but she still kept on sorting them, remembering the past. It was becoming more and more difficult to fly, and one day a bird was unable to do this.
The bird that was free some time ago, could not walk on the earth, she was unable to make a move by her own. She could not catch midges anymore; only rare rain gave her the necessary moisture. But a bird bravely endured all the hardships, guarding her precious memories.
After some time a bird died of the starvation and thirst. And only a pitiful bunch of worthless stones reminded of her for a long time.

"My faith is a growing belief in the power of God in me and in my world."

Sometimes a challenge may come up suddenly as if a raging storm is overtaking me. What do I do?

I remember that when Jesus and His disciples were in a storm at sea, He calmed the waters with these words : "Peace! Be still!" Then He asked the disciples a question, "Where is your faith?" which was an awakening call of faith in God for the disciples. And this same timeless message of faith reaches out to me now.

Where is my faith today? I put my faith in the power of God within me and within my world. If there is a storm cloud of controversy or inharmony threatening the peace of my life, I remember to say, "Peace! Be still!" and to have faith in the power of God to bring me safely through.

"He woke up and rebuked the wind and the raging waves; they ceased, and there was a calm."
- Luke 8:24

VEDA 269

Do not limit God to a particular name and form. He exists in all beings and in all forms as Atmic principle. In fact, it is the power of the Divine that makes you see, hear, talk, experience and enjoy.

"The spirit of God keeps me forever young and accomplishing more."

As a child, I probably could not wait until I was grown up and on my own. And then I found that there is no magic age when I stop learning and discovering.

Well, the reality of it all is that I am forever young, forever a child who is growing, learning, and discovering every day - no matter how many years I have invested in growing up.

And that is good news! Each day, I am given fresh opportunities with which I can stretch beyond the goals I reached the day before. I am continually increasing my awareness of myself as a child of God, a child who is not limited by age or experience.

The spirit of God within me keeps me forever young in heart and keeps me growing and accomplishing more.

"It is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs."
- Romans 8:16-17

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
