Let go of the outside world

Updated: Jul 18, 2022




Letting go is something that I have incorporate into my daily mindfulness practice. Never would I have imagined I’d be so much happier with less., but it’s truly changed my life.


To me there are many stages to Letting go. Let’s start with materialistic thing’s. When I was younger I bought a lot of aterialistic thing’s such as video games, action figure’s, movies, phones, etc. I always had to have the next big video game console. Even as recently as the pandemic I was still buying video game’s left and right. It wasn’t until I started taking meditation really seriously that I realize that thing’s that brought me so called happiness were only me happy in the moment or for short periods of time. What I realized is that true happiness comes from within.


Anther stage of letting go for me was cutting ties with pointless or negative television. In all honesty I rarely watch television, my thoughts wonder most when I do. I will occasionally watch a horror and I still watch football. That’s about it. I don’t get caught up in the Hollywood, celebrity bullshit. I don’t watch politics or the news once so ever. Don’t worry if something major happen’s I’m sure I’ll find out wether or not I want to from someone. It has no value to me or I can’t do anything about it so why fill my mind with it.


The next stages take a bit more practice but attempting to stay conscious of your thoughts will help for sure. Letting go of the past is never easy. I don’t have any great advice but I will say once you meditate it becomes easier.


Lastly is to become able to let go of thought by simply becoming the observer. We around 6,200 thoughts a day. Once you become aware that a thought is just a thought and you simply observe your thoughts in a non - judgmental way then you will spend less time clinging on to a particular thought.


These are the several different ways letting go has improved my life. It’s a every day practice for sure but one that has benefited on so many levels. I now focus much more learning about myself as I never knew I knew so little.


Blissing everyone ❤️❤️❤️

Rain! Sitting in a forest as rain drops begins to fall. Thoughts from the past come into my mind. Thoughts of shame, thoughts of anger, guilt and sadness. As the raindrops continue to pour down on my
