Faith in Letting Go

perceval-300x300Our pilgrim, Sir Perceval rides his trusted mare to the Grail Castle that as of yet, he knows nothing of. He lets go of the reins and the horse leads the way. This is the way of faith… a feeling of deep-seated intuition and wonder. Certainly there is fear present, the kind that can whither the soul but would the journey be worth it if there wasn’t any trepidation? Our hero knows that to handle any sense of dread, one must embrace it, turn it around to do one’s bidding on the road to the inner adventure.

The horse is our subconscious life; our true self behind the mask we hide under, leading the way along a meandering mystical path; our path, fertile from the rich loam of the soul, from the good Earth. We may not know the future but in humility we trust the way. There is faith in letting go.”                                                                                                                     -JC

    1. Thank you for the gracious comment and for reading my post. It is magic the way words can come together and bring a smile or a memory:-)


  1. I love your take on letting go. Sometimes that is the hardest thing to do. Letting go of control of a situation sometimes is the only way to overcome and see how God truly guides us.


    1. Yes, as human we want to plan the party and control the outcome. We need to get out of our own way and ask for guidance. Let go of the reins.

      Thanks for your comment, it is appreciated!


      1. You’re more than welcome JC. Many times we just have to get out of our own way and let those who have more experience or even just open minds to take over. We can’t do everything ourselves.
