From The Critics"Our lives are filled with useless battles because our minds are filled with useless thoughts," according to Hugh Prather, the best-selling author of 15 books, the most famous of which is Notes to Myself. His latest release is The Little Book Of Letting Go: A Revolutionary 30-day Program To Cleanse Your Mind, Lift Your Spirit And Replenish Your Soul.
He says that "failure to let go can eat up every small chance we have to be happy," and he filled his book with "releases," which are simple exercises for letting go. The releases first bring into awareness what is being held on to, and then shows how to let it go. None of them require any tools or equipment other than a willing mind. He begins with an exercise on "letting go of the fear of letting go."
Other releases cover mental pollutants, emotional fixation, misery, control, inner conflicts, negative honesty, the ego mind, and spiritual specialness.
Prather emphasizes the role of thought and provides suggestions for identifying the ones that can trigger negative emotions. He calls these the "T-thoughts." The releases are designed to help you let go of the T-thoughts and unclutter your mind. While simple to do, the releases are exceptionally powerful and most are immediately effective. Readers can do the releases in the order presented, or pick and choose among them.
"There are only three things you need to let go of," Prather says, "judging, controlling, and being right. Release these three and you will have the whole mind and twinkly heart of a child." He combines humor and real-life stories with straight-forward and easy-to read writing to make The Little Book Of Letting Go practical as well as pleasurable. It's essential reading for all those who wish to rediscover their twinkly hearts.
