"To let go does not mean to get rid of. To let go means to let be. When we let be with compassion, things come and go on their own." - Jack Kornfield
THE ART OF LETTING GO.
The depth of our love, the clarity of our consciousness, the vastness of our freedom and the experience of happiness are directly related to our ability to truly let go. Letting go is not getting rid of - letting go means being at peace with our perceptions and circumstances. The energy of the autumn supports us gently to develop our skills of letting go.
