How to Let Go ...

"A seed can only become a flower,
after it has let go of it's shell."
Guru Stu's To Do's
See possessions as things to use when you need them, and not as a definition of who you are.
Understand that problems are just difficult moments to get through; they don't stop you unless you attach yourself to them.
See people are human; neither better or worse. They make mistakes, they don't do things the same way you do; they don't necessarily think you're right either.
The Past is over; stop trying to change it.
The Future offers you as many choices as you're willing to see. Don't box yourself in to past experience or current expectations. Be open to new things.
Look someone in the eye and say "I'm sorry"
Look someone in the eye and say "I forgive you"
Go to the mirror, look yourself straight in the eye and say "You're off the hook"
Exercise: Cutting the Golden Cord

Sit comfortably, with eyes closed, until you are in a relaxed state of mind. Then picture the people or possessions you wish to release; and picture a golden cord which connects you.

Once you have this clearly in your mind, imagine a giant pair of golden scissors. Take these scissors and simply cut through the golden cord. Cut all the way through, see the cord severed; then sit back and watch the people or stuff drifting free from you.

Now this is a very important moment; you must not try to hold onto them now. You must set them free!! Let them drift away, getting smaller and smaller until they are completely out of sight. Just let them go!!

Once they are gone, sit there quietly for a moment, alone. Feel what it is like to be free. No demands, no expectations, nothing. How does it feel?

Now do you want them back, some part of them back? You'll know a lot more clearly now that they're out of sight, which you miss the most. Make your choices; then open your eyes and move towards the life you desire.
