  • Mood:

in a flexible and wise way

From perennial favorite Meditation Matters, where Ellie Finlay notes, "this is an excellent way of clarifying the distinction between letting go and indifference:"

Once we see that everything is impermanent and ungraspable and that we create a huge amount of suffering if we are attached to things staying the same, we realize that relaxing and letting go is a wiser way to live. Letting go does not mean not caring about things. It means caring about them in a flexible and wise way.
