Letting Go.


What is it that you do to let go?

It is said that the key to life isn't in getting answers but in asking the right questions. This is a great question.

Whether we like it or not, life is one continuous journey of letting go. We have a tendency to try to hold on to everything that we have - the perfect relationship, our youth, our possessions - the list goes on. But life has a remarkable habit of taking away that which we may treasure at the time. Ask anyone in their 70s or 80s what it's like to watch their family and life-long friends dying around them. This is a challenge.

So what do I do to let go? I breathe deeply. I inhale the delicious fragrance of the present moment. I remind myself with my thoughts that there is no better place to be than the one I'm in right now. I spend as much time as I can outside in nature. There is something timeless and nourishing about the kiss of the sun on my skin and the song of the birds in my heart. In short, I stay present, knowing that, no matter what happens, all is well.

  1. it's easier to let go if right from the start, you treat everything/everyone you have as something/someone you just borrowed from a supreme being.

    nothing lasts forever. we're bound to lose everyone we know or everything we have...

  4. Yes totally agree. Live in present time, love people you know, appreciate things around you, but don't get attached to anything because every good things must come to an end. Youth, beauty, fame, power, those are just superficials.
