Let go

To achieve the strength we need in living, an inner life must be lived apart from the world.
To wear the whole world as a loose garment is the key to serenity.
Loosen your hold on earth, its cares and its worries.
Unclasp your hold on other people and material things.

Let go of resentments, they hurt only you, not the person, persons or institutions you resent.
Relax your grip, and the tide of peace will flow in.

Live in today, not in regrets over what happened yesterday, not in the fear and apprehension of what tomorrow may bring.

The past is gone as a cloud of dust.
Tomorrow may never come.
We are faced with living just one day...today.
