Blog Guelph: Letting Go

Untitled, originally uploaded by Chris [Clare Photography].

Greetings on this fresh, drab October Monday.

If ever there was a season for mediating on the practice of letting go - the fall of fall would be it.

It is well understood by meditators world wide that our attachment to everything staying the same is at the top of the list of 'things that cause misery in our lives'. Cultivating an attitude of 'so be it' releases our grip which in turn opens the door to fresh energy and a more realistic experience. Life is dynamic. Holding on does not make it less so. Instead our holding causes tension and stress.

Letting go - Letting go - Letting go.

Today's six pic series serves to illustrate nature's big let go, or in some cases the appearance of holding on to the bitter end despite the odds.

Should you want to formalize your own meditation experience, check out the Guelph based Insight Meditation Retreat Schedule.
