I have read posts on IQ where people discuss 'letting go' in regards to manifesting one's desires - i.e., for a brief time focusing strongly in one's mind and heart on what one wishes to manifest, then letting that desire go. In my current incarnation I have noticed a resounding pattern of 'letting go', but in a different way: manifest, let go; manifest, let go; manifest, let go.
Although I think of all of us as Free Spirits, I have often been called by others 'a Free Spirit', denoting that it is not in my nature to be 'tied down' to any one particular paradigm, even though this expression is itself a paradigm.
When I review my linear life and ever-unfolding NOW, I appreciate the many manifestations I aligned to. Once I achieved such alignment I would, in a sense, 'let go' and move on to another potential manifestation. This applies not only to creative endeavors and expansion of conscious awareness, but to family, intimate relationships, friends, vocations, environments and locales; attitude, taste in aesthetics, cuisine, music, and fashion - everything in my 'reality'.
My current incarnation feels very much to me to align and 'let go', align and 'let go'; to manifest, allow alignment with manifestation, but not get 'caught up' in being identified or personified as the manifestation.
Have any of you seen a film from 2007 called 'The Nines'? A dear friend of mine at work recently loaned me his copy of the film, telling me, 'I think you should watch this. I think you will find it interesting. And I'm interested in hearing your perspective.' Initially I was reluctant to watch it, as my friend's track record of referrals to movies I hadn't seen, but ended up seeing, had not scored very high with me; but I was intrigued, so I did. The hidden-in-plain sight messages of this film triggered many feelings within me. The biggest trigger I felt, and the main 'subconscious' message of the film was, 'Remember what you are, and do not get caught up in your own creations'.
Does this resonate with anyone? Any thoughts on this?
Although what I have said above may pose a question or questions, what I'm relaying is a statement.
Tao Te Ching verse 24
He who stands on tiptoe
doesn't stand form.
If you want to accord with the Tao,
just do your job, then let go.

Letting go I think is a confusing terminology to place the situation in.
I think a better terminology would be, "don't worry about it." We relax and know that it is ours.
This is a confident knowing that everything will turn out well. I have declared it, and know that it is in the works even now it has already began to come.
I have stated elsewhere about manifesting being like releasing an arrow. We aim pull the arrow back, and release it, in other words don't worry about it, it is on the way to the target.
Bowling is similar, all the worry after you let go of the ball is not going to steer the ball toward the pins, only the set up does that.
So once you let go, it is better to not worry about it. It will be as you declared.

Letting go is important. We want to let go of anything that attaches ourselves to the physical world. This is in a book (TFN - Three principles to life) that I just read about and explains why, but here is what it states:
There are three basic forms of attachment to the physical world that keep us from ascending to a higher spiritual existence that we all must overcome.
