Letting go

Many years ago I had the best ever sports massage in the spa at The Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. It was so effective that I became really emotional. I was overwhelmed by the feeling of tension falling away and realised that I hadn’t felt so relaxed since I was a youngster.

We build up so many worries and tensions over the years, burdening ourselves with responsibilities, holding our fears in our bodies, becoming literally bent out of shape.

Having recently renewed my interest in Buddhism I have become better at observing my thoughts and more aware of how our thoughts create our reality. I am also, most importantly, getting better at noticing the gaps in between my thoughts.

In those gaps, fleeting and rare though they are, I experience the same blissful feeling of letting go that I felt all those years ago in San Diego.

It’s nice.
