Let's talk about releasing shit. Letting go. Release isn't a pushing away. It's a softening, so the stuff that is ready to go can slip off you. We can think of wearing our challenges like a loose garment, like a silk robe.
"Receive without conceit, release without struggle." Marcus Aurelius
The tighter we hold on, gripping, the more suffering we experience.
Notice the things that you are ready to, or should, release (behaviors, ideas, things, people). Is there a struggle? Soften. If you have tight fists, soften your grip and let the fingers open gently. Again, we don't have to push them away, we are just softening the grip.
