Letting go of stuff leads to a full life.

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?
Many people don’t understand the life-transforming message of Jesus.
Unless you “deny yourself” – meaning let go of the false self that your ego has constructed – and “take up your cross” – meaning accept the hardships and struggles that come with following – you will not find the life that was meant for you.
You must shed the masks of your false self so that your true self can be unveiled.
That true self is not something you achieve or accomplish.
It’s your soul-self…your spiritual essence that was loved-into-existence by a Love that is unconditional and eternal.
You could actually gain much power, prestige and many possessions in following your ego’s desires…and never know your true self.
How sad that would be!
The more you uncover your true self…the more you will be living in the flow of God’s Presence.
This requires a regular practice of being present and listening.
It won’t be easy picking up your cross and following your heart, but paradoxically you will find inner satisfaction, peace and freedom.
