We can’t let go of something if we don’t see clearly what it is.
Clarity of observation and compassionate presence are the two key ingredients to conscious choice.
If we want to change something and get past something in ourselves, acknowledging it exists is the first step. We need to stop holding it out, down and away from us.
Going beyond it requires first that we attend to that something, that we be with it and see it without judgment, that we allow it, and breathe it’s experience.
With this we can then open into seeing we are the space in which it exists, rather than thinking we exist as it. And with this practice, we will at some point softly put it down.
