Sometimes it's easy to let go. If you make this journey of looking to see if there's something you’re holding on to, often it's going to be just a little thing. Trungpa Rinpoche said, "If it's too big; you can't let go of it yet, so practice with the little ones. Just start noticing all the little ways you hold when it’s actually pretty easy and just get the hang of letting go."
That is extremely good advice. You don't have to do the big one, because usually you can't. It's too threatening. It may even be too harsh to let go right then and there, on the spot. But even with small things, you might—even just intellectually—begin to see that letting go can bring a feeling of huge relief, relaxation and connection with the softness and tenderness of the genuine heart. True joy comes from that.
