Let It Go *

There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you: let them walk.

I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.


When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.

LET IT GO!

And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person, it just means that their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead. You've got to know when it's dead.

You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something. I've got the gift of goodbye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay.

LET IT GO!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to... LET IT GO!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains... LET IT GO!

If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth... LET IT GO!

If someone has angered you... LET IT GO!

If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge... LET IT GO!

If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction... LET IT GO!

If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents... LET IT GO!

If you have a bad attitude... LET IT GO!

If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better... LET IT GO!

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship....... LET IT GO!

If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves... LET IT GO!

If you're feeling depressed and stressed... LET IT GO!

Get Right or Get Left, think about it, and then...

LET IT GO!

No, don"t ever let it go. you'll float away in space

"It" is all there is. It's the same from place to place, and it's all we have. it's all in our own minds...and most of us are full of it.

You're preaching to the perverted.

Hello , my imaginary Cybelle

Such a dire vision of an obnoxious and daft jester with a heart of mush.. A -1 part love and and 2 parts hydrogen -dirigible at the World's Fair, on self destructive collision course with your overloaded high tension wires, just now zooming into view, crackling with catostrophy, hissing voltage at the impending contact with my ungrounded dirigible.

oh angry Oracle, that's good to know in advance.
I'll avoid those coordinates

but then what's gonna happen?


In cyberspace no one can steal or heal your heart or hear you think.

but I can hear you now, I think.....

assuming the Cybelle isn't just another figment

but I didn't make my journey only for a single acceptable static result, but just because it moved me to go in some direction, with the meager nap sack of a few circumstantial notions in my heart and mind to keep me company... just like everyone else.

it's just a personal choice.

You've not actually, been confronted, cornered pressured,etc anymore than if I had sent a message in a bottle and one quiet day recieved a form letter.

If I had seen these office memos earlier I would have been able to more clearly read my mind as seen through
a camera obscura of your mind.


I'm crazy and pathetic.... blah, blah blah

but I'm not what inbiggens your anger and your....
well let's call it the same pain and irony that afflicts us all.


So, what are you doing saturday night?

actual saturday isn't good for me.
