“You will come to a place in your life where you realize that that which you have been should not have existed and those that are in your life no longer serve you. ” ~The Hermit Bo
You do not have any attachments
I know that it is hard. But just remember this world is an illusion and any attachments that you have in this world that brings you to a bad place and does not allow your spiritual growth should not be of that which is attached to you.
“Attachment leads to jealousy, the shadow of greed that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose” ~ Yoda
Yoda says it best and I am a little partial to Yoda. As a young Muslim growing up a lot of his wisdom seemed to be straight from the Quran, I’m not sure if that was intended by George Lucas, but none the less it tends to be a universal concept in the spiritual realm. Think of it this way, the more that you are attached to in the corporeal realm the more you detract yourself from the eternal realm of spirit.
Now I am not saying that you have to totally detach, I’ve been there and it is not the most productive place to be. You’re job is to help people to be there better selves so that we can make it to that higher collective self. If you are a hermit all the time, you won’t be able to interact in this world to come out of your cave and shed your light.
They may not serve you and you may not serve them
This is where it gets a bit tricky. This is where you have to let go of ego. Some of us who are getting to that higher vibration or coming into our awaking may still have ego that leads us to believe that they are the problem. But this in fact is not true. Your attachments to these people may be a crutch on them that is not serving them or helping them reach the level of consciousness that we all have to lead. You are a giver, I know that, but are you giving too much?
They may depend on you for everything, from paying all of there rent to jump starting their car early in the morning. How much does that take out of you? Not much, but what does take a lot of you is the fact that they don’t appreciate it. Take yourself out of the picture so that they can realize that appreciating and being grateful is something that brings more fruit in their lives, at least be grateful to that which made it all happen, and that is not you, it is the creator.
People that don’t serve you will be bitter to the bitter end
Have you ever gotten out of a toxic relationship or job and as you are getting yourself to a better place and trying to become that which you are meant to be, they seem to get more surly and call you out on every little thing you do? Well it’s partially because they have hurt in them. I have made the mistake of giving back what they give… this is a big mistake. Still be kind and cool and collective. I now that they know how to push your buttons, but turn those buttons off. They can’t hurt you, if they want to duel it out with you, respectfully decline their inclinations. This will NOT make you weak.
Yes you’r going to be upset and you may yell and scream and give back what you receive. Just remember you can always apologize, they probably will not take it but it’s good Karma points and lets you know that at least you are human and that there is something that you have to work on.
Letting go of those that no longer serve you
Remember your soul is eternal and in the end will join the greater picture. This world is temporary and but an illusion. The more we hold on to it, the more we neglect working on the eternal.
Sometimes you may care deeply for these people, but this will usually be to your own demise. What’s more important to you, getting them to like, respect you and appreciate you? Or joining those allegiances that are of divine love to reach the higher plane of eternal existence. You’ve tried enough and what have you gotten in return? Very little. So respect your soul, respect your higher you, respect your eternal soul that is here to help those that truly need you.
You’re better than them and you know it!
But don’t get your ego all tied up in this tight purple bow. The most important thing is to know what your job is. Your job is to practice your divine love self and become that which inspires greatness. Who was your favorite teacher? Was he are she an arrogant jerk or did they practice humility? You have to have humility but the knowledge to back it up. People will be more comfortable with you when you can see eye to eye and be level with them. Remember you were just like them at one time in your life, that’s why you are in front of them. If not then you have it in you to become like them.
“But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own – not of the same blood and birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. ” ~ Marcus Aurelius (Click here for entire quote)
Why has this person been put in my life
Do you really think you were put here to help them? You were absolutely not! They were put here to help you. Look at how much you will grow into a better person. You already know that you need to do the dark work to do the light work. They were here to show you your deepest darkest idiosyncrasies. Once you realize this you will realize the closeness and the lesson in it all. So respect them and love them for that. You don’t have to tell them if you don’t wan’t to. They probably won’t take that kindly.
Everyone is a reflection of you and in realizing this you have a the tools and lessons to help you change to reach your higher self. Elevation is not in hating those which no longer serve you, but loving them for the sake of love.
That teacher that you learned so much from, are you still in hos class? No you have to move on.

You will get better
Do you want better? If you have a tall glass of sugary soda, and you want a nice pure glass of natural good water. Then what do you have to do? Empty the cup, get rid of it and fill that glass with that water. It only takes the effort of emptying and pouring it. Now you may have to go to the store or a stream to get that pure water, but life is a journey and the pleasure is in the process.
What’s the worse that can happen when you decide to let go of that which does not serve you? I will leave that question open ended for you to reflect upon. But at the end of the day you truly have not lost anything but have gained a lesson.
Holding on to the thought of what could have been
Stop it! It could have been soo many things but it wasn’t. It was not meant to be beautiful, you were not meant to be your better self in this situation because it was a lesson. The past is only a memory left in the ebbs of that which no longer exist. Basically memories no longer serve us, only lessons. This is your time to grow be you and understand that your time is too short on this earth to continue to not grow into your true spiritually balanced self.
