Our director Ananda speaks with Breakfast With Audrey about the power of letting go.
When I talk about letting go, I am not talking about withdrawing or disengaging from life’s challenges. In fact, I am asking you to face up to life and acknowledge your reality. The reality of ‘self’, or soul, is that of perspective.
In this process of letting go, we must consider what exactly it is we have to let go. Really, the only thing we can let go of is the attachment to ideas: preconceived notions of what life should look like. This notion could be something we were taught growing up or it could be something we take on through culture. In wanting to be accepted and valuing relationships, we accept these preconceived ideas. In many ways, they help us to structure reality and allow us to fit in and feel protected by culture. These concepts of how one should behave are useful for a developing personality up to a point. They stop being helpful however, when we can no longer see beyond them and get stuck in a pattern of being conditioned by them.
