The Radical Art of Letting Go

“When one door closes another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us” – Alexander Graham Bell “Let it Go!”

We often hear that, from self-help gurus to the animated star of Frozen. But what does it mean to let go in a world that doesn’t seem to stop or slow down? How do we let go in a world where the lack of justice screams in our faces each day? And is it really letting go if circumstances are what demand it, be it societal structures such as institutional sexism or racism, or more personal circumstances such as chronic illness?

One thing I know is that no single individual, book, religion, or Disney film has the perfect formula for letting go. So, let’s use our UU principles, such as the interdependent web of existence; justice, equity, and compassion in our relations; and acceptance of one another to explore the possibilities together.
