Beloved, Letting go of old habits and beliefs that no longer serve us can be very difficult when we have become comfortable in carrying them around. It is only in the letting go that we can experience a sense of freedom and new life that we so desire. Although Sarah was considered the most beautiful woman in her time, she carried around what she thought to be true for years, until one day God spoke freedom and new life into her spirit. Upon hearing such news she rejoiced, and believed that even in her old age she too could be fertile. This truly reminds me that nothing is Impossible with God. Whatever we can perceive, we truly can achieve, but it also means letting go of that which no longer serves us, and embrace that which has yet to manifest itself in and through us.
Swami Vivekananda: “Expansion is life, contraction is death. Love is life, hatred is death. We began to die the day we began to contract, to hate others and nothing can prevent our death, until we come back to life, to expansion.
(Genesis 18:9-15 TIB)-Where is Sarah? They asked. There in the tent, Abraham replied. One of them said, I will surely return to you this time next year, and Sarah will have a child. Sarah was listening at the entrance of the tent, just behind him. Now Sarah and Abraham were old, well on in years, and Sarah no longer had her periods. So Sarah laughed to herself and said, Now that i a, so old and my husband even older, is pleasure to come my way again? YHWH said to Abraham, Why does Sarah laugh and say, Will I really deliver a child, at my age? Is anything too extraordinary for God to do? At the appointed time, at this time next year, I will return to you, and Sarah will have a child. Sarah was afraid, and said, I didn’t laugh. God said, Oh, but you did indeed laugh!
