Best-selling author Hugh Prather has a knack for putting his finger on the pulse of America's emotional and spiritual angst. In the Little Book of Letting Go he gives voice to the internal chatter that prevents us from enjoying or pursuing our true desires. "Within our human heart we all feel the call to be simple, to be present, to be real", Prather writes. "Yet throughout the day, the world urges us to be at war with ourselves and each other: 'Be resentful about the past.' 'Be anxious about the future.' 'Be dissatisfied with what you do see.' 'Be guilty.' 'Be important.' 'Be bored.'" Prather compares these thoughts to the stale clutter in the back of our refrigerators. By cleaning out our minds, we allow room for fresher and more nourishing foods for thought.
In this little book on mental cleansing, Prather uses personal stories as well as step-by-step exercises to help readers understand the rewards and process of letting go. For example, in the section on letting go of guilt and hurtful actions, Prather suggests that for at least one day readers "rise from sleep and make your purpose only this: 'I will go through this day harmlessly. I will hurt no one in my thoughts or in my actions, including myself.'" Prather includes numerous similar kinds of assignments in all of his chapters, including how to let go of..."Mental Pollutants", "Misery", "Prediction and Control" and "Spiritual Specialness". --Gail HudsonReview:
'Learning to let go is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and share with others. When you let go, you won't be sweating the small stuff - or even the big stuff.' Richard Carlson, author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
