Read an Excerpt

Learning to truly let go in life is an art. Letting go of trying to control our life, letting go of our identification with the ego self, letting go of our story of suffering--all demand a certain amount of inspiration, focus, and experimentation. And, as with any art, letting go can be developed over time, with practice.

Although certainly not the only way to discover spiritual freedom, learning to consistently let go and surrender in life is a powerful pathway to take. Yet it is not all that demanding: the only real 'doing' involved is that of stopping the attempts to control, manipulate, and hold on to things. It does involve vigilance and awareness; yet it is ultimately effortless.

In essence, letting go is a way of simply saying yes to the Freedom that is already present within us. It is a way of stepping through the doorway into the vast Silence within and discovering what has been true all along--that we are the Freedom, the Love, the Joy, the Peace we have always been seeking.
