|Believe that life is worth living,
And your belief will help create the fact.
The measure of success you achieve in the process of letting go will be determined
to a great degree by your beliefs. They are the framework upon which you build your
future. Your beliefs are the foundation for the shape your life will take from this
point onward. As such they must be both solid and flexible. In other words, you must
always be sure that the beliefs which form the base of your decisions and actions
are strong enough to provide support for the directions in which you are planning
to go; and yet at the same time, if these building blocks do not allow for creative
self-expansion, then progress will be beyond your reach.
By acknowledging which of your beliefs are beneficial to you right now and which
are not, you will achieve two goals; your liberation from the pain of separation
and the reconstruction of a healthy base from which to conduct your future course
It is during this time that you must assure yourself that the foundations of your
actions are secure and capable of permitting growth and change. Remember that your
beliefs predispose you to action; they precede experience. Take this opportunity
to challenge your beliefs in all areas of your life. Hold onto those convictions
that enable you to maintain a sense of self-worth and allow you to control your own
destiny. Change those that you know are preventing or slowing down your progress
toward realizing your full potential as a human being.
Focus on where you are now. Analyze those beliefs of yours which have most to
do with the process of letting go. Understand that if your beliefs in this process
are centered around personal growth and healing, then your thoughts will coincide
with these beliefs and will be guided by them. In this way you can actually empower
yourself and bring about this growth and healing.
In order to have a more complete understanding of the fundamental beliefs which
determine your actions, examine your beliefs with reference to each chapter of this
book. By doing so you will be able to identify the underlying beliefs that are hurting
yourself and others. Similarly, you will be assured of those basic principles that
are essential to your well being and to creating wholesome relationships with other
people. And as you make the choice to build upon these positive attitudes, your potential
for growth and happiness will expand.
