Blog: The Nature of Being Organized
Letting Go Naturally

My interview this week with Guy Finley on his best-selling book The Secret Of Letting Go prompted me to revisit a blog post I wrote last fall, "The Cycles of Disorganization". The post was based on the article, The Universal Cycles of Change---Patterns in Nature Translated to Human Behavior by Kristine Hallborn a study of nature and the laws of the universe that make connections between how inner reality relates to outer reality and their affect on one another. Guy also uses nature to help us understand our struggle with letting go. He says that in nature everything is in perfect order. It's all designed to allow us to let go with ease.
It's fascinating, but humans are the only "systems" in nature that do not let go with ease. Instead we become attached to the heaviness of emotions, burdens and the weight of all our stuff. We become attached to the struggle. It becomes our identity and we can't see beyond it to the freedom that is waiting for us when we step into letting go. We become one with the emotion and allow it to take over.
Who would we be if we let go of blaming something outside of ourselves for our unhappiness? Who would we be if we let go of our unwanted accumulated stuff? Who would we be if we stopped carrying around our losses, rejections and defeats?
What Guy Finley says is that we live in two worlds. One world is of the physical where we are expected to have jobs, relationships, responsibilities and struggles. The other world is the world of Infinite Intelligence and requires us only to be present, what Guy calls the "Presence Moment". It is here in this place of no time and Divine Wisdom that we can stop and examine what is causing us to resist. When we can step out of ourselves and become the observer we step into the arena of endless possibilities, where resolutions are born. Our heavy emotions are no longer the energy that pulls us forward. This is true freedom!
If you are struggling with letting go of the pile of magazines in the den, the pile of old clothes in the closet or the piles of paper on the desk, step back and become the curious observer, identify the emotion—maybe fear or guilt-- allow yourself to feel it, know you aren't the emotion, then call on your greater wisdom to help you find the solution. Doing this will open you to limitless possibilities and free yourself from being stuck.
Check out these great resources.
Love To You,
