Relax Your Mind and Discover the Wonder of Your True Nature

A practical and empowering approach to the age-old quest for letting go of the thoughts and feelings that block happiness, impede change, and hinder self-acceptance

Anyone who has dipped a toe into any of the world’s spiritual traditions knows that letting go and letting be is key. But how? In this fresh, frank, and accessible guide, Peter Russell allows readers to see that the things we get hung up on are generally not concrete, like tangible problems in the present, but are instead thoughts, feelings, interpretations, beliefs, or expectations. These are “no-things”; they exist only in our minds. And we can strip these no-things of their power and let them go by making a simple change — a change of mind. Russell boils this “letting go” down to remarkably easy methods of accepting, acknowledging, recognizing, and even befriending what we tend to run from. This paradoxical practice generates peace of mind, fresh perspectives, and wisdom in action. In turbulent times like ours, this is a true power, one available to us all.
