Authentic spirituality is always on some level or in some way about letting go. Jesus said, “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). Freedom is … letting go of our need to control and manipulate God and others. … We become free as we let go of our three primary energy centers: our need for power and control, our need for safety and security, and our need for affection and esteem.

“letting Go As a way of life” by richard rohr

Control is about as real as a unicorn taking a leak at the end of a double rainbow.
