Attachment is the origin, the root of suffering; hence it is the cause of suffering.
– The Dalai Lama
You’ve probably seen or read something like it before on the Internet.
A beautiful image with a short quote that says something to the significance of “let it go” (if you don’t believe me, type “let go” into Google and look under the images tab).
And I’m not talking about the Frozen theme song, I’m talking about the idea of letting go of things in your life, whatever that may be.
But rarely is it actually explained how to actually “let it go”. More often than not it’s become no more than a slogan for happy living, with vague guidance at best.
What I do find interesting though is that most of us seem to realize intuitively how important it is to live without clinging to things, even if we’re not exactly sure how that’s supposed to happen.
