“Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.” Rumi

I love Brenda Ann’s thoughts and this one is a very important reminder to me as a parent. Love is a wonderful and selfless thing when bringing up young children. It is a sad love when it becomes a selfish, controlling weapon to the children who have grown up. I observed this with my own grandmother and her daughter and determined not to be the same. I hope to find the right balance.
For me there are many more interpretations of this Rumi quotation. Thoughts allow the mind to follow through with lots of permeations. How many of us wish for something and hold onto that thought, strangling it? If we put that thought out into the Universe, and let go, it allows that thought to be free. Gratitude to the Universe is part of that process. Knowing we’re part of a much bigger picture. Gratitude, love and letting go, help us to become the people we most want to be.
How would you interpret this quotation? Does it have meaning to you too?
