Many people have admitted. For most refugees, when settled
in the United States, each person's luggage only has a few
sets of clothes and a few necessary items. But over time
everyone buys too much...
Likewise, when you were a child, your soul was very holy,
but when you grow up, there is a collision with people, with
life, everything is more and more, and right and wrong
things make you become dominant in many things. You are
tired because you work and think too much. However, physical
fatigue is not scary, what is scary is mental fatigue. When
the mind is tired, it will affect the mood and will
jeopardize the health of the body and mind.
In fact, each of you has fatigue brought by others, and
there are also fatigues created by yourself. However, some
of you will be immersed in it, but some will get out. The
difference is that you can adjust your state of mind or not,
and can you let go of unnecessary things.
The reason why your mind is tired is because it often
insists on holding on and refuses to let go. You should
know, in life, there are always some memorable things, but
there are also certain things to let go of. Letting go and
insisting on holding on, which way should you choose?
In my opinion, the courage to let go is a kind of treasure.
You are always troubled because you have not learned to
forget. All things are hidden deep in your mind, so it
cannot be erased. Life needs to understand that, what should
be remembered carefully, what should be forgotten,
forgotten, what can be changed, changed, what must be
received cannot be changed.
Real life is like that, there are things that are reluctant
to accept. There are times when you want to live a happy and
comfortable life for yourself, but because of the people
close to you or the events that arise, it can't be as
expected. Therefore, life always contains many regrets.
Your life is ultimately still held, controlled, and
responsible for by you. So, what needs to be let go, you
should not keep, what should be cherished, you will not let
go. If holding it but not happy, not happy, it's better to
let go. If nostalgia, can not let go, then accept suffering.
The most regrettable thing in life is:
- Easily let go of what should be kept, insist on keeping
what should be let go.
A lot of times, you insist on holding on to what should be
let go and end up creating misery for yourself. But there
are also many times, letting go is not about losing but
getting more. Because you always feel that in this life,
what you have achieved is still not enough, it seems that
you are all trying to accumulate, trying to do addition.
However, did you know that a lot of famous and successful
people have been doing subtraction all their life? Reality
has proven that the more successful people are, the more
they will pursue a simple life, moreover, they will not let
material desires and interests control themselves.
For example, Facebook founder Mr. Zuckerberg, the world's
youngest billionaire is a staunch supporter of minimalism.
When you open his closet, you only see a row of light gray
T-shirts and a row of hats dark gray. His daily car to work
is a Honda car worth $ 16,000. He always wears a gray
T-shirt and jeans, so much so that even the employees think
he doesn't change his clothes every day!
It turns out that famous and successful people that you
still admire in every way, have been doing subtraction all
their lives. They are not bound and controlled by material
desires, so they always feel happy with their lives. A
Japanese TV series called:
- My house is empty, there is nothing
The main character is Satō Mai, a girl who harbors anomalies
in her mind just like her house. The house is so messy that
the bag can't be found, and the guests who come to the house
don't know where to sit. Until one day after her heartbreak,
when Satō Mai saw anything that belonged to her
ex-boyfriend, she got angry and threw it away. But what happens?
- The more she threw away the result, the more comfortable
After she experienced an earthquake herself, she was buried
the mess that filled the house, and even the rescuers could
not find her. And a saying by Satō Mai left a deep
impression in the hearts of viewers:
- Excess items will most likely take your life.
The redundant things in the present life, although not as
deadly as in the other movie, will waste a lot of your time,
and mental and physical strength. Indeed, the more material
desires you have in your heart, the more chaotic your inner
mind will be. The more redundant things there are, the more
important things will be submerged in them.
So, Yutaro Matsuura, a Japanese scholar once said:
- The things that are with you day and night are the most
reliable, closest, and most unfaithful friends.
You should have a careful selection of items, either don't
buy or if you buy, have a place to use. In fact, it's not
because the living space is too narrow, but because there
are too many redundant things.
Everyone hopes to live in a spacious, comfortable home. But
constantly buying more and hoarding makes redundant things
more and more and squeezes your living space. In general, a
very simple moral in society, everyone has a position and a
life commensurate with yourself, you should also know
enough. But when people today are too immersed in material
desires and immediate practical benefits, it is not easy to
The more one understands how to let go, the more will be
achieved. Handling and letting go of the excess in life, you
will feel light, pure, happy happiness that material things
cannot bring. That's why people who know how to live truly
happy will do the subtraction:
- Subtract a little material, add a part of the purity
- Minus a little lust, add a piece of well-being
And you will understand, happiness does not come from
outside, true happiness only comes from within. As long as
you let go of external desires and desires, you will feel
its value and joy.
Letting go of unnecessary things, first of all, to relieve
all worries, make you happy. The latter is to give you a
chance to grow. The mind must know how to let go, then life
will bloom, if the heart is no longer heavy, the body will
be free. The unnecessary things you need to let go of are:
1- Let go of the face
Sometimes you bow your head, to see clearly the way you
walk. Many people find that you yourself have too many
things, all of which are not pure, or unsatisfactory, but
cannot let go. The face makes you unable to let go,
ultimately suffering and sorrow because of the face.
Sometimes you lower your head, to see clearly the way you
are walking, you know that but don't go.
2- Let go of the pressure
Are tired or not tired is decided by each of you. In the
soul room, is not cleaned, it will be covered with dust.
Sweeping away the dust of the world can only make a gloomy
mind bright. To clarify the situation, only to be able to
say goodbye to all troubles; throw a few tasteless
sufferings, happiness will fill the space.
On the contrary, if your heart is not cleaned, it will be
covered with a lot of dirt. Cleaned up, naturally, it will
become brighter, more beautiful. When things are handled and
arranged clearly, it is possible to push the mess away.
Similarly, by throwing away meaningless suffering, there
will be more space in your heart for joy to linger.
3- Let go of the past
Only by letting go of the past can you live a happier life
in the present and in the future. Try to change your mind,
regulate your emotions, learn to calmly accept the present,
learn to calmly face your destiny, learn to see life in a
positive way, and learn to think of the positive side of
things. Learn to calmly face all difficulties, learn to look
at the good in everything in life, you will find life
meaningful. Letting go of the past, your heart can receive
new joy, can change your mood
4- Let go of the inferiority
Immediately remove the word inferiority from your mind. You
should know, not everyone can become a great person, but
anyone can become a strong inner person. Believe in
yourself, find your right place, then you will have a
valuable life. Perhaps everyone has a strong inner self.
Therefore, by trusting yourself, and determining your
position, you can find the value of this life.
4- Let go of laziness
Determined to change your destiny, the best secret is to
bring every simple thing you do to become a master. Always
remind yourself that you have to move forward, you feel
happy, healthy, and honest, and you will definitely have a
brilliant life. Remember, trouble arises from laziness, and
great harm comes from unnecessary leisure.
6- Let go of negativity
If you want to be a successful person, then there is no
reason not to try for yourself. Let the positive energies
repel the negative thoughts. Learn to live a noble life.
Live honestly without pretense, live tolerantly without
being narrow-minded, live happily without worries, and work
hard instead of laziness. As long as you want, you can
completely perfect yourself in the best way throughout your
life. As long as you want to be able to do everything on
your own. No one can influence your results except you.
7- Let go of resentment
Instead of complaining and blaming the situation for every
failure, seriously think that failure is also an important
preparation step for future successes. Efforts to overcome
shortcomings and promote strengths and weaknesses are more
important and necessary.
Resentment and seeking to shirk responsibility will only
make each step toward your success heavier and slower.
Letting go of resentment, and calmly accepting failure, is
the mentality of a forward-thinking person. Resentment
cannot change the situation, only the effort to rise up can
bring hope. As long as you don't intentionally bury
yourself, just think about shining, one day you will shine.
Don't live a life full of sorrows, and don't think life is a
betrayal. In fact, you are also given as much as others, if
you want more, you only have to try to get it yourself!
8- Let go of hesitation
Don't dream, don't hesitate. Instant action, unlimited
success! Once you know the situation, you shouldn't be weak
and indecisive. Once you see a path clearly, you should just
walk, don't look back. Take action immediately, that is a
common trait of successful people.
If you have a good idea, take action immediately. If you
come across a good opportunity, take it immediately. Instant
action, unlimited success!
Space is limited, learn to let go of annoying things, and
you can have more space to contain better things!
9- Let go of the narrow mind
People's hearts are tolerant, and heaven and earth will also
naturally become more open. Tolerance is a kind of virtue,
tolerating others is also a way to pave the way for your
soul to become relieved and at peace.
Tolerance is the greatest gift of the soul, it requires as
much effort from your brain as it does when you keep your
balance while riding a bicycle.
10- Let go of doubt
If you still have doubts in your heart, your work will be
difficult to accomplish. Do not use your skepticism to judge
what others think. Do not baselessly doubt others,
otherwise, it will affect the lasting friendship.
Please evaluate everything objectively and transparently
when the necessary evidence is gathered. That way you won't
have to worry about hurting anyone, nor will you be tired of
doubts. To help you let go of your worries, you should keep
the following in mind:
- Learn to control yourself
You can't control the actions of others, and you shouldn't
even try. But you can control not only your actions but also
your thoughts. You can stop reliving the pain, and choose to
move on. You just need to learn how to do it, it's not
- Humble attitude
Because no one likes someone who is super smart and
especially hates someone who thinks they're smart.
Therefore, you are best to maintain a modest attitude with
Every one of you knows that happiness is built on the
foundation of peace and self-sufficiency. This is the dream
of life that everyone aspires to achieve. Buddha taught
that, if the heart is not lacking, it is called rich. Being
needed by others is called precious. Pleasure is not a
personality type but a type of energy. The best way to deal
is to forget about it.
- Non-competition is compassion.
- Not arguing is wisdom.
- Not hearing is purity.
- Not looking is self-possession.
- Forgiveness is liberation.
- Knowing enough is letting go.
All the causes of suffering, anxiety, and insecurities, come
from grasping at too much. In other words, the attitude of
not being satisfied with yourself, wanting to get anything,
wanting more without giving up on anything. Living in the
world, being a human should not be too strict, working does
not need to be too perfect, joy cannot be enjoyed, should be
understood in moderation, and tolerance towards others is
for yourself. Your body is partly flexible, one way back.
If you know how to let go of unnecessary things in the
present life. Let go of the interests, let go of the hatred
that you hold. At the same time, by giving up the pursuit of
calculating for yourself, and leaving away the greed,
hatred, and delusion in daily life, you will find joy and
serenity in your soul.
Because when you know how to let go of unnecessary things,
your mind will be clear to overcome the temptations of
greed, hatred, delusion, and conceit, and then you will see
the joy around you. If you can let go, your heart will be
open, whoever says anything you don't like will also ignore
it without accepting it. If you do something offensive, it
is easy to forgive, but if you are angry or sad, it will
only take a few minutes or a few hours, at most overnight,
and then forget it all so that your life can be peaceful. As
a child of Buddha, you let go but always keep the full
responsibility of a human being. To make bodhicitta more
solid, to repay the merits of parents' birth, to still
fulfill all tasks, all duties.
Because when your soul is pure and happy, you are gradually
approaching the goal and success in life that you expect.
You work better, live more passionately, be kind, forgiving,
and open, and learn more things...That's why in life when
you know how to let go of all your troubles and worries,
your life becomes simpler and easier. So, in each of you
know how to let go of troubles so that your mind is calm and
your heart is at peace.
In short, letting go is the art of making your body and mind
peaceful and happy. Money, beauty, power, position, and full
of other material comforts, if you don't know enough, will
bind you into delusion and sin.
It is a miracle that the more you let go of unnecessary
things, the more peaceful, light, and peaceful your mind
becomes. It is completely opposite to the habit of
accumulating greed, making you often worried, and insecure,
for fear of loss, being robbed by others. When you know how
to let go, you always open your heart to help others, and
make them happy, you know how to connect love, share life,
make people feel secure, don't worry, don't be afraid, and
respect each other.
Letting go of material comforts is difficult, letting go of
the mind contained the temptations of greed, hatred,
delusion, and conceit, which is even more difficult ten
thousand times. Therefore, a cultivator is to grasp the end
of the rope and maintain a firm stance:
- It is better to live a simple life, first to cultivate to
become a Buddha, and then to save sentient beings.
To be able to realize ambitions and noble dreams, you must
know how to let go of the smallest things. You learn to
follow your mind naturally without judgment, if you are
greedy, you know greed, just know it clearly.
Although you know for sure that you still haven't really let
go of all the evil minds that harm people, you are still
determined to persist and constantly observe it, there will
be a day when you will completely master it all without
