The Power of Let Go.
My husband is a very wise man. He might not always agree on me with that, but he’s without a doubt one of the best mentors I've ever had in my life. Together we've evolved and more or less been fine tuning each other and ourselves over the years and I've learned SO much from him it is pretty insane.
One of the things I love about him the most is what he calls the Power of Let Go. Sounds like one of those self-help books, yeah? Not a bad thing if you ask me, it is a form of self-help and it is one of the best out there. My husband don’t consider himself a satanist, which is perfectly fine by me. But we’re sharing many similar approaches to life and society and communication with other people, and the Power of Let Go (let’s call it POLG from now on) is by far a very satanic way of looking at what’s around you; It’s about minding your own business, but not to respect someone else, but to respect yourself.
There’s an old cliché which kinda fits into this world view, you’re the star of your own movie, but it’s not only about that, you need to be the hero also, the hero you want to be. And POLG is about that, to just realize that what you matter and thinks is the only thing that matters when it comes to meeting and interacting with people you just don’t work together with. I’m not saying you shouldn't listen and learn, not doing that is one of the worst things you can do - and traps your mind and makes you a prisoner. But that’s pure common sense.
I’m person who have a tendency to get to know a lot of people. I’m an introvert extrovert, with a need to be social and need to be seen, but then again, need to be alone and need to be away from people I dislike. So I’m meeting, either I like it or not, a lot of humans I just can’t stand. In my work, through my interests, on social medias. Once I was one of those raging people, always getting angry and upset because some idiot somewhere behaves idiotic, obviously believing that my rage and my opinions will make a difference. Let me tell you one thing; it won’t.
Maybe if I was a teacher or politician or someone with a real or pretend power, but I don’t have that power. I - and you - don’t have the power to change the minds of idiots, or people we just don’t agree with. I know some people say it’s possible, but in my experience things like that never change in people. Even if they on the surface behaves better they still holds the same opinions and attitudes on the inside.
What happens instead, like with Blamethrowers or Psychic Vampires, is that if you engage in a discussion with them, to change their minds or for your own egos sake tell them your side of the subject, it will only give them more power and energy to continue being who they are. Ignorance might be bliss for stupid people, but ignoring them is bliss for you and in the long run, for everyone else. Just imagine if no one followed “controversial” (by the way, they’re never controversial, they’re just loud…) people on Twitter? If a tree falls and no one hears it… yep, it exists - but no one will ever react to it and therefore the sound lose its momentum.
You can almost visualize it in front of you, the distance you keep from what you don’t like. It’s like hearing a song you hate on the radio and not singing along with it, or letting a movie play on the TV behind you while you’re doing something else. It’s there, but it won’t affect you. That’s possible to do and it’s equally possible to do with other humans. Just see them as the fan in the ceiling or the buzzing refrigerator, creating constant noise - but if you don’t focus on it you won’t hear it.
POLG, the Power of Let Go is the power of stepping away from what (including life itself) you can’t stand and distance yourself from it. They can fight and scream out there, but you will feel peace in your existence.
