The Power Of Letting Go - Jon Kabat-Zinn - Mindfulness.

This video discusses the concept of "letting go" and its significance in our lives. This speech describes letting go as the opposite of clinging or grasping. When we want something or have certain expectations, we tend to hold onto them tightly. Letting go is a reminder that we can choose not to get entangled in this clinging and not force things to be a certain way. This video highlights the idea of allowing things to be as they are, without trying to control or manipulate them. It's about recognizing that things will inevitably be both pleasant and unpleasant at times, and instead of resisting or grasping, we can simply let them be. Jon Kabat-Zinn shares an example of how monkeys are trapped in India by holding onto a banana inside a coconut. To free themselves, they must let go of the banana. This illustrates that letting go can be the path to freedom, and it's a practice that needs to be cultivated continuously. This video also draws a parallel with the breath, explaining that every breath we take involves both receiving and releasing. It's a natural part of life to let go, creating space for what comes next. Overall, this video explores the concept of letting go and how it can lead to a sense of freedom and peace in our daily lives, emphasizing that it's a practice to be embraced and integrated into our moments. 🧡 “To let go means to give up coercing, resisting, or struggling, in exchange for something more powerful and wholesome which comes out of allowing things to be as they are without getting caught up in your attraction to or rejection of them, in the intrinsic stickiness of wanting, of liking and disliking.” Find out more about Jon Kabat-Zinn on his website 🧡 Video edit & Transcription: Spiritual Mind ❤️Instagram: 🧡Twitter: 💛Facebook: 💜Email: 💙Affiliate: Prelude No. 7 by Chris Zabriskie is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence ( Source: Artist: Affiliate Link Disclaimer: Amazon links are affiliate links that let you help support the creation of more videos on this channel at no extra cost.

Letting Go

by Safire Rose

She let go.

She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear.

She let go of the judgments.

She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.

She let go of the committee of indecision within her.

She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons.

Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice.

She didn’t read a book on how to let go.

She didn’t search the scriptures.

She just let go.

She let go of all of the memories that held her back.

She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.

She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go.

She didn’t journal about it.

She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer.

She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.

She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.

She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she should let go.

She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter.

She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.

She didn’t call the prayer line.

She didn’t utter one word.

She just let go.

No one was around when it happened.

There was no applause or congratulations.

No one thanked her or praised her.

No one noticed a thing.

Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort.

There was no struggle.

It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad.

It was what it was, and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let it all be.

A small smile came over her face.

A light breeze blew through her.

And the sun and the moon shone forevermore…

From the prelude to 'The Dance'

by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

What if there is no need to change?
No need to try to transform yourself
Into someone who is more compassionate, more present, more loving, or wise?
How would this affect all the places in your life where you are endlessly trying to be better?
What if the task is simply to unfold?
To become who you already are in your essential nature:
Gentle, compassionate, and capable of living fully and passionately present?

What if the question is not
“Why am I so infrequently the person I really want to be?”
But “Why do I so infrequently want to be the person I really am?”
How would this change what you think you have to learn?

What if becoming who and what we truly are happens not through striving and trying
But by recognising and receiving the people and places and practices
That are for us the warmth of encouragement we need to unfold?
How would this shape the choices you make about how to spend today?

What if you knew that the impulse to move in a way that creates beauty in the world
Will arise from deep within
And guide you every time you simply pay attention
And wait.
How would this shape your stillness, your movement,
Your willingness to follow this impulse
To just let go
And dance?
