Letting go during centering prayer is meant to continue the rest of your day.
What do I mean by this?
I mean we should never hold on to thoughts and emotions that are not productive.
They stop us from accomplishing the daily tasks that we need to complete.
When I become worried, I let it go.
When I become anxious, I let it go.
When I become frustrated, I let it go.
When I become afraid, I let it go.
It is okay to acknowledge emotions but they will often stop us dead in our tracks.
We need to let them go so we can move on.
I realize that at times there are thoughts and emotions that we need to deal with.
I do not suggest repression.
I suggest that we let them go so we can move on with our day.
Later in the day if we need to deal with them, we can.
