RELEASE is the ability to let go of something or to cause something to be freed. What a miraculous feeling it is to RELEASE a fear or thought that has held me captive. As a new rock climbing enthusiast I can appreciate the physical ability to RELEASE one rock in order to grasp the next. RELEASING my grip on the hold requires strength and faith. I must build my muscles so I can reach, push and pull, but I must also trust that my partner and climbing equipment will keep me safe. With the powers of strength and faith I let go of the rock I have held so tightly and grab the next one, climbing a little higher. The same is true of my thoughts and fears and long-held limiting beliefs. I must have strength and faith in the power and presence of Spirit to let go and let God. As I RELEASE what I have held tightly; fear, judgment, pain, shame or blame, I find that the next and higher thought is right there within my grasp and I climb a little higher in mind and Spirit. Yes, RELEASE is a miraculous quality of both the human experience and the spiritual evolution of my highest Self.
