Presence, Forgiveness, and Letting Go


“Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are cause by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.” — Eckhart Tolle

Yes.

Forgiveness and presence are powerful forces to use to change yourself and give a wake up call to others around you to do the same.

Letting go sounds so easy. And it is. And it isn’t. Practice presence and forgiveness. Start with yourself. Then pay it forward.

  1. More on letting go:

    “Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.” — Rachel Naomi Remen

  2. A great quotation I once heard from a Buddhist monk I think is applicable here, and that I try to keep in mind:

    “Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better yesterday.”

    Forgiveness for others, and for ourselves. Nice post brother.
    -Eli

  3. I just got done catching up on your blog. You’ve given me a lot to think about … the conference sounds like it was a great one. I need to get there next year.

    Thanks for writing down everything you’re experiencing. It really does help those coming behind you.
