Letting Go Is The Key, No Matter What.
I came across The Secret about 5 years ago when I was going through a rough time in my life. I felt like the world was collapsing in front of me. From nowhere, issues started to pop up. Within just a few months I had problems with my health, my relationships, my friendships, and more. That was when I read The Secret, and I started seeing changes in my life. I learned that the way I was looking at these situations was totally wrong. Finally, when I learned to respond to things with love, I saw magic started to happen. After that, I read The Magic. My life took a 360 degree turn. I moved to the US for my Master’s degree and started to live my dream life. My parents and I were so happy.
Here is the important part. I forgot The Secret teachings after coming to the US. The part I missed was ‘letting go’.
When I moved to the states, I was happy but I felt bound to how I reached my end results. I had expectations from everyone and everything. I wanted things to unfold the way I imagined, and that did not happen. Guess what??? I was dragged into the black hole of negativity again. I saw the same cycle of negative events happening in front of me but I had no idea how to stop them. I had nights where I used to cry until I choked. For 2 months I followed a routine where I used to go to work, come back home and eat and sleep. I remember one of my roommates had asked me to sit in the hall with them for a little while. They had no idea of the pain I was going through.
Later that year I decided I would not let negativity consume me again. I realized that my brain was wired to think negatively in my childhood and I had never addressed that part of me. I always kept that part hidden inside me. Hence, negativity kept on appearing in my life. During that time I saw The Secret book in my office. When I ask my colleague if I could take it for a while she responded by saying, “Consider it yours. The book found you.”
After that, I had surgery which was complicated but painful. It could have been worse but everything went well. One day, I saw that my college friend had become a counselor. I went to her for therapy to address my childhood traumas. That therapy helped me in so many ways. I learned to let go of my past and let go of outcomes. Now I understand the true meaning of, ‘if something is meant for you it will find a way, otherwise, let the thing be as it is’.
I am happy with the person I have become. After those 2 years, I know why things unfolded the way did. It was meant for me so I could heal everything, forget everything, and learn to live life happily. I realized that sometimes, I need to let go of some things that happen. Actually, I needed to let go of thinking that what happened was not for my own good. I know it is difficult to know this while it is happening but eventually, you will understand it.
