Letting Go

"By adding something new every day, we gain knowledge. By taking something away every day, we gain wisdom." --Lao Tzu

How do we take something away? As we cultivate higher awareness, we begin to see just how much we have added to our picture of reality that isn't really there. Our beliefs, concepts, and emotions all add layers to physical reality, but that meaning exists for us only--it has no objective reality. For example, the word "mother" is understood differently by each of us. Be aware of your beliefs and concepts today and see if you can begin to step out of them to contact the spacious and accepting truth of what is.

What do you need to release?
