“Let it go, let it go,
can’t hold it back anymore.
Let it go, let it go,
turn away and slam the door.”
Idina Menzel – Let it go
In my life I’ve had three types of fourlegs: tortoises, dogs and cats. Each of these combines one thing – everyone has an animal mind. Regardless of how I feel myself animals always greet me enthusiastically and with open arms. Though I would say bad things they don’t remember it. Animals always live in the present.
Unfortunately the human mind works otherwise. We remember that happened a year ago, last week, yesterday. We get stuck on words, actions. We might blame ourselves for things that happened a long time ago. Animals would have forgotten those things and carried on with he life. Still we humans want to stay stuck.
Often we ourselves get stuck in the situations. We are ashamed of what we did, we might ponder on our actions for a long time. If you would ask from others probably they have forgotten the situation or not even notice about it. We burden ourselves a lot by stucking on things that we can’t change anymore.
Luckily we can train our minds and pursue the same as the animals: live in the moment and let go of the past. At least my mind is so overdriven and thinking too much so I’m gonna follow my cats and do as they do: relax and let go.
