Letting Go

What does it mean to let go, not partially but totally? It means giving up your position with someone or something—what you wanted from it, out of it, with it, who you were in relationship to it, your stake in it. If that possibility intrigues you, practice this exercise: The next time you find yourself mentally holding onto a past, current, or future event, release it, and let it fall away. Letting go does not have to be practiced. Simply drop what you are holding. Instead of trying to understand everything or figure things out, simply let go. Let go of your desires, expectations, and fears. Let go of your worries and your remorse. Let go of your life and your death. Letting go is releasing everything to be just as it is—nothing special to be, no wounds to heal, no past or future to bind you. Let everything be without picking it up as “me or mine.”
