the wisdom & mechanics of praying & letting go (21:48)
Updated: Sep 26
Here I lay out a model for how prayer & letting go work. I contrast those practices with the habits of worrying/obsessing & with the vanity game of cycling between pride & shame. I argue that in praying & letting go, we break our entrancement to our own minds & conditioned ways of thinking, which creates space & receptivity for fresher, wiser outlooks to arise, either within us in the form of insights or epiphanies, or in our environment in the form of sychronicities, teachings, and other serendipitous happenings.
