Let go – capture something greater
Sr. M. Emilie newsletter 2017.
The biography of Sister Emilie shows facets of a successful, but often difficult life. She had to let go of wishes and plans to capture something more valuable, a chance
for a new beginning. It’s not easy to let go: to let go of tasks and responsibilities, memories and past events; to say good bye to dear persons, let go of life’s strength that shrinks through aging and illness. If we hold on to everything, we also keep energy back. What we keep back cannot move and dies. Let us leave the old behind and go towards something new. Let go of something that has become dear to us; it will be a chance for a new start. (Cf. Phil Bosmans, Aphorisms/ Let Go)
