Letting Go To Arrive

“It’s like a dance.
And we have to give each being space to dance their dance.
Everything is dancing; even the molecules inside the cells are dancing.
But we make our lives so heavy.
We have these incredibly heavy burdens we carry with us like rocks in a big rucksack.
We think that carrying this big heavy rucksack is our security; we think it grounds us.
We don’t realize the freedom, the lightness of just dropping it off, letting it go.

That doesn’t mean giving up relationships; it doesn’t mean giving up one’s profession, or one’s family,or one’s home.
It has nothing to do with that; it’s not an external change.

It’s an internal change.
It’s a change from holding on tightly to holding very lightly.”
— Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo
