EPISODE 20: LETTING GO SO WE CAN LIVE
“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
On today’s episode we talk about letting go and surrendering. What do we need to let go? Outcomes? Control? Other People?
We try to control things because of what we think will happen if we don’t. In other words, control is rooted in fear.
We’ve talked in the past about our perfection and our need to listen to our inner voice. What does that mean? It means we need to let go and surrender. Holding on to pain/control doesn’t fix anything. Replaying the past over and over again doesn’t change it, and wishing things were different doesn’t make it so.
The key to success is in letting go, releasing our grip, and surrendering our need to figure everything out ourselves. This is how we find our way to authenticity.
We talk about what we have had to do to work towards letting go. As with most things it’s an ongoing process. Listen in to hear our conversation on surrendering and where we find peace with the Universe.
GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK
- Take a deep breath. Thinking about what you may be holding onto. Is it control? Is there a past relationship? Do some deep listening.
- Then imagine what it would be like if you let go of what you are holding onto. Journal about what they would feel like.
- Talk to your accountability partner about letting go and surrendering. What/who do you surrender to?
