posing 2 ( an answer?)

Which one should we be more mindful of, more careful about: that which we hold on to or that which we let go of?

Perhaps the answer – or the beginning of such – lies in the fact that, at a given moment, the one can never be the other; what you let go of is never what you hold on to. For we can, at a given time, only clasp or only release – never both, simultaneously. So that what we let go ofย  is never what we hold on to, and vice versa.

The struggle ensues when we keep holding on to what we have chosen to release. Or persist in shaking off what we have decided to keep. If we never reach a place of resolution, we will find that, in the end, all that we are left with are… empty hands locked in a tight grip – not truly keeping anything, and yet not fully being free of anything.

So, let go or hold on. Clasp or unclasp. Choose it – every day.

Turkangel, here is, I hope, a step towards an answer. It is vague, at best, I know. Or maybe we should restate the question? I’m sure coffee will make the wheels turn better… Get ready! ๐Ÿ™‚
