To let go means putting a full stop to all the mental activity with one simple thought: ‘I am a being of peace’.
Thought creates consciousness, so if we repeat this phrase slowly and attentively, our thoughts and emotions stop expanding and inner peace is restored. The essence of our being is peace – complete freedom from overload.
To return to this essential peace means observing the minds antics and deciding to put a full stop on them now; no lingering. Of course, the mind does not listen at first. We have to gently and firmly repeat the direction ‘stop’. If we do not, those wasteful thoughts will continue to take away our peace.
