Loslassen

 

Pfingstrose Coral Charm

Wer sein Leben festhalten will, wird es verlieren. Wer es jedoch um meinetwillen verliert, der wird es gewinnen.
Matthäus 10, 39 (NT)


 

Hast du etwas lieb...

Hast Du etwas lieb, so lass es frei.
Kehrt es zu dir zurück, so ist es dein.
Kehrt es nicht zu dir zurück,
so hat es dir nie gehört.

Zugesprochen Konfuzius (551-479 v. Chr.)
chinesischer Weiser, Sozialphilosoph

Empfehlungen

  • Loslassen – Setz dich an einen Bach und sei einfach da. Das Lied des Wassers wird deine Sorgen aufnehmen und sie hinab zum Meer tragen. Marcel Proust (1871-1922) französischer Sozialkritiker, Essayist, Romanschriftsteller, Aphorismus

 

Einsichten

  • Wir brauchen nicht zu lernen, wie wir Dinge loslassen können; wir brauchen einfach nur zu lernen zu erkennen, wenn sie schon verschwunden sind. Shunryu Suzuki Roshi (1904-1971) japanischer US-amerikanischer Sōtō-Zen-Meister, Quelle unbekannt

Der Träumer (Klosterruine Oybin), ~1835
Deutscher Maler Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840)
  • Der Durchbruch zum göttlichen Licht vollzieht sich meistens in Augenblicken, außerhalb der Meditationszeiten und stets dann, wenn er nicht erwartet wird. Manch einer wird das Erleuchtungserlebnis zum Beispiel ganz plötzlich und unverhofft während dem ruhigen Verweilen in der Natur zuteil. Gerade in dem Augenblick, wo wir entspannt loslassen oder besser – selbst Loslassen geworden sind – wird uns alles geschenkt. Zensho W. Kopp, deutscher spiritueller Meister, Dharma-Nachfolger von Zenmeister Soji Enku, Zen und die Wiedergeburt der christlichen Mystik, S. 163, Schirner Verlag, Darmstadt, 2004

 

  • Im Kreise von direkten, ehrlichen Menschen fühlen wir uns wohl. Sie sagen ihre Meinung, und wir wissen, woran wir bei ihnen sind.
    Indirekte Menschen, die sich scheuen zu sagen, wer sie sind, was sie wollen und was sie fühlen, sind nicht vertrauenswürdig. Sie bringen ihre Wahrheit auf andere Weise zum Ausdruck, auch wenn sie sie nicht aussprechen. Und das trifft andere oft überraschend.
    Direktheit spart Zeit und Energie. Sie macht unsere Opferhaltung, unsere Märtyrerrolle und Tricks überflüssig; sie trägt dazu bei, dass wir unsere eigene Stärke anerkennen; sie schafft respektvolle Beziehungen. Melody Beattie melodybeattie.com US-amerikanische Autorin von Selbsthilfebüchern über Koabhängigkeit, Kraft zum Loslassen, S. 166, Heyne Verlag, München, 1991

 

  • Lass los, was du festhälst. Und alles wahrhaft dir Gehörende wird wie durch einen Zauber unmittelbar in deinem Leben erscheinen. Paul O. Williams (1935-2009) US-amerikanischer Sciencefiction-Autor, Haikudichter, Professor emeritus in Englisch, Principia College, Elsah, Illinois, Die Quelle in dir, S. 70, Rowohlt Verlag, Reinbek bei Hamburg, 1991

 

  • Freiheit und Glück bestehen im Loslassen, nicht im Sammeln und Bewahren. Wolfgang Joop (*1944) deutscher Modedesigner

 

  • Das Loslassen habe ich jetzt fest im Griff. Humoristisches Paradoxon

Zitate von David R. Hawkins

⚠ Achtung See Power vs. Truth, Januar 2013

  • Sobald die innere Absicht besteht, die Liebenswertigkeit aller Dinge zu sehen, zeigt sich, dass alles, was existiert, seine eigene Reinheit und Identität besitzt, und dass alles gleichermaßen für seinen Dienst an der Menschheit geehrt zu werden verdient. [...] Wir lernen, dass das Loslassen aller Denkpositionen uns erlaubt, den Wert alles Bestehenden zu erkennen und das Liebenswert-Sein in all seinen Ausdrucksformen zu würdigen. Ob die Maus, die an der Seite der Mülltonne entlang läuft, als anbetungswürdig oder widerwärtig angesehen wird, hängt vom Betrachter ab. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 79, 2006

Engel loslassen

Ich ließ meinen Engel lange nicht los,
und er verarmte mir in den Armen
und wurde klein, und ich wurde groß:
und auf einmal war ich das Erbarmen,
und er eine zitternde Bitte bloß.

Da hab ich ihm seinen Himmel gegeben,
und er ließ mir das Nahe, daraus er entschwand;
er lernte das Schweben, ich lernte das Leben,
und wir haben langsam einander erkannt.

Recommendations

  • Let go and let God. US American proverb

 

Insights

  • To let go does not mean to get rid of. To let go means to let be. When we let be with compassion, things come and go on their own. Jack Kornfield jackkornfield.com (*1945) leading US American teacher in the vipassana movement of Theravada Buddhism, meditation teacher since 1974, author, The Art Of Forgiveness, Loving Kindness And Peace, S. 155, Rider, Bantam, reprint edition 29. April 2008

 

  • Data that goes into the subconscious during a trauma cannot be released from the subconscious until a shift of the same magnitude or intensity is again attained. As a result, though we might be able to recall the traumatic event, we cannot change any attitude we may have toward the experience (trauma). Neither can we alter how we feel or release the experience until we reach the amplitude of the original traumatic event again. Rev. Rosalyn L. Bruyere (*1946) US American spiritual teacher, white honorary medicine woman, energy healer, aura reader, Wheels of Light. Chakras, Auras, and the Healing Energy of the Body, Touchstone, 1st edition 12. April 1994

 

 

  • The ultimate aim of the quest must be neither release nor ecstasy for oneself, but the wisdom and the power to serve others. Joseph Campbell, Ph.D. (1904-1987) US American mythologist, expert in comparative mythology and comparative religion, six part PBS television documentary The Power of Myth, interviewing host Bill Moyers, (book 1987), 21-26 June 1988

 

 

  • One note about resistance to the idea of letting go in general, is that many people consider their emotions, desires, dreams, lusts and even thoughts to be the most intimate things they know. They identify with these phenomena, and believe them part of their true self. […]
    Only by letting go of the desire can you remove the distortion that allows you to get that which you no longer desire! Larry Crane, US American representative of the Sedona Method, An Introduction to the Larry Crane Tradition Release Technique and Lester Levenson's Teachings on Love

 

  • Releasing feelings and desires leads to firsthand understanding of the fantasy nature of thinking, emotions and desires.  All these occur only in our minds, are completely subjective, and have only the most tenuous existence in the moment. Only our belief in that they are real and the importance of thinking, feelings and desires gives them any reality. Lester Levenson (1910-1994) US American physicist, enterpreneur, founder of the Release Technique/Sedona Method, cult leader, No Attachments, No Aversions. The Autobiography of a Master, Lawrence Crane Enterprises, Inc., January 2003

Quotes by David R. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • One's reluctance to letting go of thought is the illusory identification of the thoughts not only as 'mine', but also as being the 'me'. The mind tends to be proud of its thoughts as though it were preserving a great treasure. Dr. David R. Hawkins, The Eye of the I, S. 104, 2001

 

  • A person who is familiar with this will feel the compressed energy and begin to release it without waiting for the mind to create an excuse that justifies it's release. The more sophisticated mind does not need an outside event to release it's angriness. It just knows that it is building up some suppressed angriness and sits down and says, "I had better look at this." It then starts letting go of the energy of it before the mind gets around and creates something 'out there' to relieve itself. It is as though the events in our lives are almost like safety or release valves, providing a way to decompress this energy tank. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Healing and Recovery, chapter 3 Handling major crisis, S. 241, 2009

Fallacious concept of property

  • The 'letting go' of materialism and worldly gain is facilitated by the realization that everything belongs to God, and that humans have only temporary custody or stewardship. Thus, in reality, there is no 'my' anything. In fact, nobody even 'owns' their own body, for it belongs to the world and returns to the world from whence it came. As a paradox, it will be noted that the ego/self believes that it has ownership of its possessions and properties but, upon examination, the opposite is true, that is, one is owned by their possesssions and properties, not the reverse. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 193, 2007

 

  • How long are you going to hold onto? About one second. That. I'll tell you how long to keep it. Let it go – just let it go (snaps). Surrender it the instant it happens completely and totally to God, the instant it happens. Why? Because you develop the capacity to do that. So the reason for spiritual training then is you develop a powerful capacity to let go of anything and you never know when it's going to come up. 'So and so just died'. (claps hands once). You just let it go the minute – you let it go (snaps). Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Devotion: The Way to God Through the Heart, DVD 1 of 3, minute ~40:40, 27. September 2002

When discouraged and believing that surrender doest seem to work

  • So you try to let go of it. It doesn't always let go right away. But the very fact you were willing to surrender it, and that you did actually go through the process, is already a karmic merit. So that eventually you're building up. [...] One might say, undoing the negative karma. And now, all of a sudden, one day you let it go and it disappears. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Devotion: The Way to God Through the Heart, DVD 2 of 3, minute 1:45, 27. September 2002

Letting go required to go to the extremes.

 

  • So here is the ultimate sacrifice. – You can do it at home folks. So you let go of wanting to change or control, or derive, or experience the experiencer. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Alignment, DVD 2 of 3, 16. April 2005

Letting go the stack of grieving over losses over lifetimes

  • Question [Posed by a mother who had lost her father and her only son]: I ask God to relieve the pain. Trying to relieve the pain. It has been there since three years.
    Answer: What are you getting out of the grief?
    Reply Questioner: I can't let him go.
    Answer: You have a program that says you can’t let him go. It means you won’t. If I said to you, "If you don't let go of it, I am going to kill you this instant!" […] You would let it go. You are working it for all the juice you are getting out of it. You are feeding off the grief. You are getting hooked on it. You are living off of that juice of that grief. I want you to give it up. Surrender the grief to God so you can be of service. […] your narcissistic self-indulgence. It is normal, but it is also normal to reach a state of satiation and say, "I have got to do something now for other people." What is the best way to bless that situation except to say, "In His name, I will alleviate the grief of others." What you do in their name […] forget the Memorial Services and all that crap. Do something for others instead of being selfish and self-centered. Do something for someone else in their grief. Dedicate your life in the name of that child to others […] your willingness to surrender that to God […].
    If God said from Heaven, "I WANT YOU TO LET GO OF THAT NOW! SAY, 'I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!'" There is more than one lifetime on this. You have had lifetimes of losses. Let it just continuously run. Let it run. Let go resisting it. Let go labeling it "grief." You feel inner sensations and emotions. Don't label it "grief." You are feeling a painful feeling. It doesn’t need a name on it. It is just a painful feeling. Sit with the painful feeling. Be at one with that feeling without resisting it. Just be with it completely, 100%, and that is how you eventually disappear the stack. Then you have the energy to work on other things. This is a stack coming up from not just this lifetime. You say, "It is because I am a parent." Everyone is a parent! In previous times, losing most of your kids was routine. I would say these are stacks suppressed from other lifetimes. Sit with it and let it go. Loss is part of the human condition. It is biological. Elephants feel it. It is a biological instinct going way back in time. Elephants push the bones of their former mate around, grieving. I have had to sit on stacks for months or years that just ran and ran. Then it suddenly lets go and I am a free man. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Satsang Q&A, Creative Life Center, 2 CD set, 13. September 2006

Letting go – Poem

Letting Go

To let go doesn't mean to stop caring;
It means I can't do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off.
It's the realization that I can't control another.

To let go is not to enable,
but to allow learning from natural consequences.

To let go is to admit powerlessness,
which means the outcome is not in my hands.

To let go is not to try and change or blame another,
I can only change myself.

To let go is not to care for, but to care about.

To let go is not to fix, but to be supportive.

To let go is not to judge,
but to allow another to be a human being.

To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
but to allow others to affect their own outcomes.

To let go is not to be protective,
It is to permit another to face reality.

To let go is not to deny, but to accept.

To let go is not to nag, scold, or argue,
but to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires,
but to take each day as it comes and cherish the moment.

To let go is not to criticize and regulate anyone,
but to try to become what I dream I can be.

To let go is not to regret the past,
but to grow and live for the future.

To let go is to fear less and love more.

Not tied or bound

 

If I could only let it go

Drop what's in my hand, without a second thought.
But with layers, layers, layers of frustration, hold on with all I've got.
Take the anger. Grip it tighter. Grip it tighter yet.

This feeling of discomfort; closed as a fist can get.
I open up my sweaty palm and roll the object 'round.
Notice that it's not attached; that I'm not tied or bound.
I am it, or I have it.
Why struggle to hold on?
If I could only let it go, my hurting would be... G o n e.

Find my comfort. Focus Inward. Live with open hand.
I needn't grip things any longer, blown away like sand.
At core I'm silent, I'm at Peace.
Air in a bubble, finds r e l e a s e.

No more with pain or darkness, no longer hurt by lies.
No longer blinded by scales, which once covered my eyes.
This is what the wind feels like. Unhindered by confine.
Set free all my frustrations; they're here but they're not mine.

 

* * *

 

Rob Slanina, Canada

 

If you love someone let them go.

If you love someone let them go.
If they stay away then they were never yours to begin with.
If they come back then they are yours to keep.
