Letting Go To Rise Above – EU 33
Letting go is like winning a fight (physical or otherwise); many of us think we’d have the upper hand if the situation were to present itself, but when push comes to shove, most of us would move away from the confrontation and towards any alternative.
There are many forms of letting go. You can let go of a past holding your present and potential-self hostage. You can let go of poor habits and behaviors. You can let go of the stress you feel at work or in your personal life. You can let go of your need for situations and people to work out in your favor. You can let go of all that you think you know and step into the realm of possibility, expansion, and utter unknowability.
This week’s episode features a free thought-flow from host Michael. No topic of focus, no agenda, just a desire to self-express and explore emergent ideas. Some points of interest include the idea of letting go to rise up, meaning that our perception of how things should be can often stifle opportunity and authenticity. I discuss presence, intuition, the many deaths and incarnations of self over time, subtle progression, sobriety, the codifying direction of Elevated U, stoicism, Boethius’ The Consolation Of Philosophy and fortune, entitlement, patience, transcendence of being, problem-solving, and more.
There are two things I would like to particularly leave you with this Memorial Day week as we recognize those who have served this amazing country of ours by honoring their service through our actions and virtues.
1) HOW CAN LETTING GO IMPROVE ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE?
I often think that the longer and tighter we hold onto pieces of knowledge, behavior, and identity that no longer serve us, the more we suffer. What are you holding onto that’s holding you back? What are you so attached to that your life would conceivably fall apart in its absence? What would it mean if all that you know about yourself and the world were incorrect? Challenge your assumptions and entertain this idea with curiosity and optimism. If you care to share, please leave a comment or email us. The more stories and perspectives we have, the better we can serve our growing community of truth seekers.
2) WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
How can I better serve you? How can we make Elevated U and the podcast a more useful experience and resource for you? Are you interested in any particular topics, even ones that may be outside the norm of what we discuss? Are you experiencing any particular challenges or finding unique solutions that could benefit our listenership to know? Let me know what I can do for you, I am deeply interested. Leave a comment or send us an email :).
Lastly, I’d like to thank you for your patience. It’s been slow-going to get back on a regular content schedule, but good things are looming ahead. Thank you for being a part of this journey and for being so awesome as you continue to progress through your own.
Have an elevated week!
