Let Go and Be Free

In the same way that a cloud appears in the sky, without trying to be or look a certain way, is what it means to let go.

I can’t tell you that you should let go, because you trying to let go isn’t letting go. One must become like a cloud.

Letting go is an art.

It is when you are fully absorbed with your experience in the present moment, without any judgement.

Now, what is judgement on present experience?

It is the memory of past experiences and the knowledge you have acquired along the way. These memories are making guesses and judgements on what this present experience is, if its good, bad, pleasurable, or uncomfortable. All judgements arise based on past memories of what you think an experience is. Yes, judging something as “good” is a judgement.

Labeling an expereince  “good” creates the experience of something being “bad.”

Now since you are taking your present experience and comparing it to different past experiences in your life you are never fully living now.

Living fully in the present moment is such a beautiful peaceful experience, because it’s free of any label.

It’s free of “me” interfering and judging it.

If you let go of yourself, who you believe yourself to be, and how this moment should be…. is when you find your true self.

Your true self is self-less.

Your true state is the state of no-self. No judgement. No thinker of thoughts.

This post was inspired by the book I am currently reading, The Wisdom of Insecurity, by Alan Watts. It’s a brilliant book that goes into detail on the reason why were constantly battling states of anxiety and fear, and goes deeply into the nature of them. I recommend for anyone who is struggling and trying to find themselves, or just anyone who is in for a great read.

Get Rid of Your Beliefs

Your beliefs are what is holding you back in life, and keeping you from being truly happy and free. Because of who you believe yourself to be, you automatically set boundaries and limitations for yourself that you want to achieve within this life.

Your belief is like a cloudy distorted screen that covers the world. In other words, it closes you off from the Truth of reality.

The Truth of reality is beyond all belief and perception.

The Truth is before all beliefs and perceptions.

Reality is just what is, with no human belief covering it.

If you rid yourself of all your beliefs, the world of possibilities will open up for you.

If you stop believing that you’re not good enough, or that you could never be “successful”, you will find that these were just illusions, or distractions that you’ve put yourself in. You’ve put an illusory box around yourself, one that isn’t real or true. It’s an excuse to stay in your comfort zone and keeping you from living your life completely free.

Most likely your beliefs were installed upon you by society and what other people have told you who you are, what kind of person you need to be, and stay as. The reason why is because they feel comfortable keeping you in their box, under their beliefs. This is how they know themselves. By judging and putting a belief on you, they feel more secure with who they believe themselves to be. It’s a way of knowing who they think they are.

If you try to exit that box some may get uncomfortable and try and keep you in it, even though you know its an illusion.

You must rid yourself of all your beliefs, and find out what’s true.

This is real freedom. When you stop believing that you have to be someone, and just let go and be.

Enlighten yourself, and free yourself from all beliefs and limitations.

The most real state is the state of nothing, where no thing is clouding your perception, and you perceive the world with no judgement.

Then you are free.
