Something To Think About

Letting go means permitting life to be as it is without resistance. It is the ultimate act of trust. Reflect on what it means to let go, to let be, to trust, ans leave things as they are. Find a quiet spot to sit and consider the following ideas. - rodney smith

1. How easy is it for you to let go of your desires, resentments, angers, or frustrations? What does it feel like to hold on to your pain and pride?

2. Reflect on your need to control events that are chaotic and unpredictable. What are the feelings that arise, and how do you handle such situations? Reflect on how much time and energy you spend arranging events, hoping they will turn out the way you desire. How does this interfere with being spontaneous and creative?

3. The next time you find yourself refusing to accept something, take a moment to notice your reactions. Use them as a cue to question whether you are denying anything about situation. What is it that you refuse to accept and why? Be honest and keep adding to your aversion.

4. Practice letting go. The next itme you find yourself mentally holding on to a past, current, or future event, release it, and let it fall away. Letting go does not have to be developed, it only has to be done. Instead of trying to understand everything or figure things out, simply let go. Let go and release everything to be just as it is. Nothing special to be, no wounds to heal, no past or future to bind you.
