Contemplating Surrendering, Allowing and Letting Go

“Letting go doesn’t mean erasing a memory or ignoring the past; it is when you are no longer reacting to the things that used to make you feel tense and you are releasing the energy attached to certain thoughts.

I am not advocating to do anything. It’s a practice to do something and then let it go, toss it away — having a knowing that I am doing the best I can.

Surrender is a space between the effort and the result or outcome. It’s a knowing that when life knocks you down, nothing seems to be working — you can always get up.
