The art of letting go, letting be

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Desperately holding on to something often holds us back in discovering the many possibilities to live a fulfilling life. It can be happiness, or sadness, or the way we think our life should look like, we easily get attached to. However, change is the one thing we can always count on. That one moment of intense happiness can last just a split second to be followed by frustration. Or a worry that held us in our grasp can just as easily evaporate and make room for confidence.

Here is a small experiment I want to share with you:

“Pick up a coin. Imagine it represents the object at which you are grasping. Hold it tightly clutched in your fist and extend the arm, with the palm or your hand facing the ground. Now, if you let go or relax your grip, you will lose what you are clinging onto. That’s why you hold on.

But there is another possibility: You can let go and yet can keep hold of it. With your arm still outstretched, turn your hand over so that it faces the sky. Release your hand and the coin still rests on your open palm. You let go. And the coin is still yours, even with all this space around it.”

(From: The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche)

Just imagine, how letting be might bring about many possibilities.
