Renounce within

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE This technique is based on a Zen Buddhist spiritual practice. In this technique, all you have to do is mentally give away everything that you think belongs to you. Don’t be deceived by the simplicity of the technique. It is a very powerful technique to heal our restlessness and tune ourselves with Existence. All our restlessness is because we are always struggling to possess more and more, to achieve more and more. When we realize that nothing we possess is actually ours, a deep healing and acceptance happens to us. In the Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna says: Ananyaschintayanto maam ye janah paryupaasate Teshaam nityaabhiyuktaanaam yogakshemam vahaamyaham When you live totally in tune with the Existential power, that same power takes care of running and enriching your life materially as well. Just the understanding that Existence gives and takes at the right moment is enough. Then you know that what is happening is the right thing for the moment and life is flowing as it should. This creates a mental gap between you and your wealth, and that gap is the true renunciation. Duration: 10 minutes INSTRUCTIONS Sit by yourself for a few minutes as soon as you wake up in the morning. Close your eyes and visualize that all your things belong to Existence. None of it is yours. Existence is so gracious that it has allowed you to have it. Now, you are going to return everything to Existence. One by one, visualize giving away your most precious possessions. You can visualize giving them away to someone, or simply picture yourself without them. Your money, your home, your car, your jewelry - whatever you are holding onto most tightly, give away that first! One by one, see yourself without these things. Give away everything that you always felt you could not live without. As you do this, have the deep understanding inside that Existence will provide for you at every moment. There is no need for you to hold on to anything. Whatever you really need, whenever you need it, will be given to you by Existence. Feel the gratitude flowing in you towards Existence. Experience this deeply, truly. Let this truth overwhelm you. You will find a tremendous release happening inside you. This technique can directly create a shift in your consciousness. You take the leap from the material life to the spiritual life.
