In a difficult world there is no point making our journey heavier than it has to be. We hold onto things that weigh us down, and we do this needlessly.
So we know that letting go is the answer to everything, but this is not always easy. As with everything, we need tools to practice with. The Buddha taught four ways to let go, and Ajahn Brahm presents this teaching in a wonderfully engaging manner.
You don’t have to be a Buddhist to benefit from this teaching, everyone can understand it and put it into practice. As with so many things, of course, to be a practitioner of the Buddhist meditation technique will make it much easier to do.
