“Set free these memories and stories of pain and pleasure, amazing depth and disconnect, love and imbalance.”
Letting go has been the hardest practice for me in life… I suppose it has to do with my need to control as well as inability to accept and surrender.
- I’ve noticed that when I resist accepting or surrendering to an inevitable change, I encounter the ‘hard pain’ of avoiding the feeling of the emotions I’m working through. Then this resistance or a defense/fear is added on top of the feelings of loss, grief, anger and sadness that I have underneath
- When and if I decide to just allow for the emotions to flow and drop into the turmoil of the internal anguish – I fall into the ‘soft pain’ of what it
- I then process and quite effortlessly (though not immediately painlessly) start feeling held, supported and loved
How do you let go and surrender to what is?
