Let It Go
I was wondering what exactly can make people sad when somebody or something they love was gone. Once I also ever felt the same thing when I lose someone that I love, someone that used to be there when I need, and yes it was hurting. I keep asking my self why am I that sad? Is that love that made us so? Hmm, I guess it's not. Love is very pure, it should liberates anyone, including from sadness. So what is wrong with everyone when separation happen between them and the ones they love?
As time goes by, I slowly understand. I could say it is about the power of letting go, the power of receiving, or in Bahasa Indonesia it is called 'ikhlas'. In the last few weeks, I heard obituaries from some friends. They felt very sad and lost when their someone finally gone, in this case they passed away.
I rethink, the sadness is not caused by they who are leaving but it simply because we can not deal with the situation and condition. We are on denial. We have not mastered and applied the power of letting go yet. When we love someone or something, we should have to learn about these things as well. Loss is a certainty, we just don't know when. Perhaps it will reduce our sadness when it finally happen to us, or may be we just smile and feel no sad at all because we are able to let it go.
