I think often we don’t let go of things. Instead, we try to let go.
We don’t see the prosperity that we already have. Instead, we see the lack and chase after prosperity (we try to be prosperous).
We don’t see the beauty that is our lives, we see what’s wrong with it and try so hard to meditate and practice sadhana to create the beauty.
We don’t forgive. We try to forgive.
Drop the try.
Actually feel the release in letting go instead of feeling the trying in letting go. Look around you at what you have – oh my god, it’s a lot – and breathe in the ease that is in your life. It’s there, no matter where you are and what you think is happening to you. As you look around the room, remember to take conscious breaths and feel the glorious vital life force moving through your body. Quiet the mind and let the soul exude its natural state of gratitude.
Trying is laborious, and there is a lot of resistance and doubt in it. Doing is a part of Being. And Being is knowing you don’t have to try; it’s already all there for you.
