Awareness includes letting go…
We think… and stop right there! That is part of the problem of letting go.
We think it’s about letting the mind relax.
Yes that is part of it… but only one part.
The body also has to relax, to let go of years of accumulated stress:
all the anger one pounds into the feet,
all the stress binding the hamstrings,
all the strain in the wrists,
all that stuff the body has been taught to hold together.
The body has to learn how to let that go…
And the spirit:
The spirit needs to learn to fly again
to be free and not constrained by leases of the mind and body.
This all interrelates in letting go as it’s all bound up:
Mind Body and Spirit.
To let go : is to truly fully let it all go.
and once this is done…
Well then that’s a new starting point and a new page to teach from…
Awareness Includes Release…
One style of Meditation is the practice of release, which is used to increase one’s awareness.
To release out of our normal pre-programmed behaviors or habits.
Our mind is designed to constantly be on the go, to leap from idea to idea. At times we need to go beyond our normal nature: “to release” both into our day to day nature and out of our nature both.
So for example: releasing focus of one topic. In the release of focus awareness can then be used to stitch together different aspects of our life together… or hold onto something (such as a single thought) and then apply it across many different parts of our life at once.
