Letting go…

One day, Ajahn Chah came upon a large, heavy branch that was lying in his path and which he wanted to move out of the way. He motioned to a disciple to get hold of one end while he lifted the other.

Then, they held it ready to throw, he looked up and asked, “Is it heavy?”

And after they had flung it into forest, he asked again, “Now, is it heavy?”

It was like this that Ajahn Chah taught his disciples to see Dharma in everything they said and did.

In this case, he demonstrated the benefit of “Letting go”.

Think about it, how much burden we are carry on? We refused to let go the past incident and allow it to repeat again and again in our mind.

Nothing is more precious than peacefulness…

How can we enjoy freedom and peacefulness?
