LEARN TO LET GO
“To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.”
— Lao Tzu
How do we take something away? As we cultivate higher awareness, we begin to see just how much we have added things that really aren’t there to our picture of reality. Our beliefs, concepts and emotions all add layers of meaning to physical reality, but that meaning exists for us only – it has no objective existence. For example, the word ‘mother’ has a complicated network of meaning for each of us.
Become aware of how your beliefs and emotions colour your perception of different events in your life. See if you can begin to step out of your fabrications to experience the truth and spaciousness of what is.
“When guilt rears its ugly head confront it, discuss it and let it go. The past is over. … Forgive yourself and move on.”
— Bernie S. Siegel
