“Sometimes letting go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on”
~ Eckhart Tolle
Letting go can be more powerful that putting our energy into defending or hanging on… yet it is often hard to do.
Sometimes we don’t realize that we are holding on to something until we notice tension in our body or mind. And even then, our resistance to surrender continues.
I like to think of letting go as a real gift to ourselves.
To let go, we give up the illusion of control, and become vulnerable.
When we become vulnerable we let the love in.
It is an act of compassion and acceptance.
It connects us to the present moment and to our inner being.
