The art of letting go

at by Anonymous

Yesterday I had the pleasure to visit a Museum of sepulchral culture in Kassel, Germany.

The art of letting go appeared to me when reflecting upon it. Death, the art of letting go; of loved ones, family, friends, physical body and all achievements. Death is a very crucial lesson in life, if not THE lesson in life. Yet I find very less space for that in society;        the art of letting go, the art of facing death, and all the small deaths we face every day. But with death, amongst all sadness and grief,

there also comes relief, it also brings something new, an expansion of oneself, of what ones takes oneself to be. With death also come acknowledgment and preciousness of life right now and that all things have a beginning and an end. Like blossoms in the sky.

This is just what comes to mind for now. I feel touched by the atmosphere of the culture that has established around death. I wish to  value death more and face it for what it truly means – personally and collectively. To treat death as an integrate part of life. I feel if we integrate and welcome death and subsume its pain, sadness and fear the more we can also see its treasure. The more we can also value our life, relationships and gifts.

Do you know what I mean?

The more we might be able to know what is important, really important and what isn`t. The more we know where to place our focus and how to use our resources, energy and money to really implement what is of truth value to us. I mean it, I say it!

No! Is a complete sentence. A Lama once said.

Death can also be a great helper, facing death.

Yes, it rings the bell and you know: „Okay! This is what I will do now. This is my focus now.“

You know all the dreams you always had and always brush aside to realize them at another perfect time, place and circumstance.

Now is the time! Now is perfectly fine!
