I am working toward a daily meditation practice and weekly blog practice. Part of where I am right now involves non-attachment: to self, to thoughts, to things, to identity, and so forth. It requires being very present to right now, what [I] am doing, thinking, planning, reviewing and releasing. Releasing is a big agenda item, letting go of old thought patterns, habits of thought and how [I] believe them, shape them into a self who acts and lives a certain way, rehashes the same thinking over and over and is resistant to change. Change is essential and releasing opens the way for new, better practices to unfold and blossom.
