“What you don’t release drags you down.” –Zen Proverb

Letting go is one of the hardest things to do the first time you trie, but once you master the notion the world is not ABOUT you, but merely host to you, it becomes easier.

You kids, your parents, your friends, even the strangers you meet, can indeed be whomever and however they please. Just because you occupy the planet at the same time, just because you have a clear indication of what’s “right” by your standard does not give you the moral authority to tell another sentient being how to live.

I don’t care if they are killing themselves. Once you’ve tried persuasion, move on.

Let go of the need to be right. Let go of the need to save. Let go of the desire to control. Let go of the past. Let go of the future. Let go of the fear. Let go of the pain. Let go of the certainty. Let go of it all.

What you’ll find, ironically, is that by letting go if everything, you end limits. You become one, with all that is. Like the water that no longer clings to this leaf, you end your separateness to merge with eternity. This is the same as surrendering the monkey mind, hell bent on control, to the greater vastness of nothing. It’s connecting with the divine, an act of absolute faith and absolute beauty.

Let go.

  1. re: Josie “But, now you have both hands free to handle your own life.” :yes: :yes:

  2. I’m feeling very much the same today.
    For me, it’s like..
    Imagine those you love as a bouquet of beautiful balloons. As you hold the strings, they merely float there. But when you release your grasp..they are free. Floating. Soaring to wherever they choose to go. They are still beautiful. But, now you have both hands free to handle your own life.
