Letting go in Lent

Friends, as we enter this holy season of Lent, I’m reflecting on things my clients have taught me over the years about the sacrifice of letting go.

1. Give compassionate permission to the thing you need to let go of to let go of you.
2. Give compassionate permission to yourself to let go of it yourself.
3. If you can do neither, hold on to it with one hand only in your mind’s eye, and free the rest of your body in compassion to live free.
4. Give permission to the Divine to help, out of compassion for yourself.

Peace.
