“Meditation aims precisely at softening the mind and rendering it more manageable, so that you can choose to concentrate or to relax, and most

importantly to free yourself from the tyranny of torments and mental confusion.”    

From ‘The no-nonsense meditation book' , Neurologist Steven Laureys

" Whoever dares to let go naturally becomes a kind, gentle person, and greatly increases the chance that others will behave just as warmly.

The opposite of letting go is holding, keeping, possessing, a behavior that is close to addiction. Holding on often prevents the much-needed

renewal or regeneration in your life."

From 'Lâcher prise pour trouver le bonheur' or ‘ Loslaten om gelukkig te worden’ , Lama Zeupa
