On Letting Go (Revised)13/08/2019 Duração: 15min
The goal of this practice is to experience some degree of freedom upon letting go of whatever it is that we are holding on to. Suffering and unhappiness result from craving and aversion. If we observe the thoughts and emotions underlying them, we realize that we are holding on to something. When we let go of whatever it is that we are holding on to, the thoughts and emotions pass away taking with them the cravings or aversions. This process occurs in real time as we continue to observe our breath and our attention drifts away from the breath precisely because of some craving or aversion that arises.
