Krishna spoke to his people and said, “Here. I have a very special gift for you, the gift of joy, of happiness, of prosperity. Won’t you reach out and take it?” “Thank you,” they say, “but we can’t, you see. Our hands are full of these sweet mangoes.” Krishna smiles, “Let go of the mangoes,” he explains patiently, “then your hands will be free.” “But Lord”, they protest. “We like mangoes. Why don’t you give us your present first, then we promise we’ll let go of the mangoes.”
What are your mangoes? What are your limiting ideas that you hang onto that you are refusing to let go of? What are the excuses you make that are blocking the flow in your life? Is it fear? Lack of self-confidence? Blame? Anger? Resentment? Guilt? Worry? Shame? Righteous Indignation? Judgment?
Fighting for your limitations or excuses is just not worth it!
Lighten your load by letting something go. Start small. Re-frame a belief. Do something different. Try something new even if you’re scared. Be open to a new way of perceiving something.
This is one way to see the possibilities of a life where you say ‘yes’ to yourself.
