Let Go || 10.7.14

Mantra10.7

"Let go of what has passed. Let go of what may come. Let go of what is happening now. Don't try to figure anything out. Don't try to make anything happen. Relax, right now, and rest."

~Tilopa


Sometimes all the brain will let you do is think. In circles and squiggles, your mind will wander, replaying the good and the bad, but mostly the terribly confusing like a montage in your brain. This series of scenes set up to make you relive what you'll never go back in time to fix does nothing for you. Nothing. So today, tell the brain to shush. Like a fire, those thoughts will eat away at the good and the bad within you until there is only the foundation and then pretty soon that comes crashing down too. So just try and silence those pesky emotions and thoughts and just let them go. Take them out with the trash and sit with what you love. Relax. Breathe deeply. If your mind doesn't want to work on a problem or is coming up repeatedly with the wrong answer, don't stress, just stop. Let it be. Peacefully exist with your emotions, good and bad. Let them coexist in your heart. But let them exist. Try not to dwell.

With this new fall season upon us and a full moon just a couple days away, what could you let go of and not dwell upon? Feel free to share below...
