Closing cycles allow us to advance in our spiritual evolution, and the end of the year is an excellent time to do so.
Valuable lessons

There are stages in our lives that have already ended, and each one of them has left us with very valuable lessons, but it turns out that many times we want to cling to them to feel that they have never ended, without realizing that we are only dragging all those sensations and emotions that the past has caused us, achieving certain patterns that only stop us along the way. For example, all those grudges that come to keep an ex-partner, with that sack full of rancor, it would be very difficult to be able to strike up a new relationship.

For Buddhism, life is a constantly changing process. If we were aware that everything happens in an instant, we would not hesitate to discard all those moments that have come to an end and that we keep as a longing for them to return to being as they were. They have already fulfilled their cycle, they have already fulfilled their teaching… What happens to us is always what has to happen to us to learn, to advance, and to evolve. Whether we like it or not, nothing is forever.

This 2020 has been a year of many challenges, a lot of growth, a lot of losses, a lot of healing, a dark year in which the majority realized that the only light to see the path has been our inner light. This 2020 has been a year of preparation for a more conscious plane, one that is more spiritual than physical.We have been taught to let go of what we are most attached to.

A new beginning

The end of the year represents the opportunity for many to start a new cycle and fulfill a whole list of resolutions. To start a new cycle, you have to learn to close others, and many times we cross the New Year with many open cycles.

Letting go is the beginning of being able to receive. Remember that if you do not have enough space to receive new blessings, the universe will not be able to send you what you have asked for, because you are not giving him the opportunity to fill that space occupied by something that is hurting you, and since he does not see where to put the blessings that you have ordered, he will simply send them to another person.

You can no longer do anything with what happened. The only thing you can do is recognize the emotions that it causes us and stop judging us. Remember that nothing lasts forever, and that emotion will not stay there all your life if you don’t allow it.

Turn the page

On the other hand, if that cycle has not been able to be closed due to something you have left pending, simply act, complete that mission, and turn the page. Confront the fact that that pending or whatever it is that you want to close is already over, because in the long run, life will take care of forcing you to do it and it will be much more painful.

You also have to take into account that closing a cycle is a whole process and that you have to be patient with yourself and with others, since anyone involved in the process also has their own rhythm to get ahead, and any grudge you have, transform it into gratitude, because that circumstance has left you with wisdom.

The most important thing is to forgive, and forgive yourself, because everything that happened just like that had to happen. As Gustavo Cerati says, “Being able to say goodbye is a sign of growth”… Without learning, there is no growth.

If you close the cycle, your present and even your future will benefit. When you realize that the only constant is change, you will no longer cling to anything and you will always find new ways of living, starting by working on your dreams and making them come true.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ~Lao-Tzu
