In all the depth of letting go, it pays to remember what’s worth holding on to. This Pueblo verse captures it oh so well. To me, it’s even simpler…
We hold on to what lifts us.
Hold on to what is good
even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe
even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do
even it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life
even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand
even when I have gone away from you.
