“Letting go of fixation is effectively a process of learning to be free, because every time we let go of something, we become free of it. Whatever we fixate upon limits us because fixation makes us dependent upon something other than ourselves. Each time we let go of something, we experience another level of freedom.” ~~ Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche, “Letting Go of Spiritual Experience”
There is so much to let go of in life. . . and yet, people will tell you to let go of the person who you love that has died.
I don’t think so?
Let go of your need to control.
Let go of needing to rush around.
Let go of those things that you can’t fix like other people’s reactions.
Let go of the muscle tension you are holding on to.
Keep gentle hold of that which is sacred and tender…
Continue your bonds of love and closeness with that person who is gone.
