This week’s topic is “Letting Go. An Act of the Will?

 

We pick up a hot coal in the morning from the wood burner.

Ouch, we let go immediately. No thought. No desire. Instant letting go.

The language of letting go has entered into the mind of the meditator.

It is often not a solution but an ambitious state of mind.

Letting go reveals an outcome of understanding.

We can tell ourselves a 1000 times we should let go and it’s to no avail.

The desire to let go shows we are not ready to let go.

We will explore the preparation for letting go and wise responses employing at times letting go.

 

What are we holding on to?

    Insight and practices for difficult times

    We are in a race between fear and consciousness. Never before have forces of greed hatred and ignorance enjoyed such a platform of populist divisiveness that instills fear and separation throughout society, endangering our very civilization.

    The First Duty of Love is to Listen

    What is meditation and everyday life mindfulness practice but listening? True listening is neutral, non-judgemental, welcoming and silent.
