Renunciation is realizing…

Renunciation is realizing that our nostalgia for wanting to stay in a protected, limited, petty world is insane.

Once you begin to get the feeling of how big the world is and how vast our potential for experiencing life is, then you really begin to understand renunciation… Every time we are willing to let the storyline go, and every time we are willing to let go at the end of the out breath, that’s fundamental renunciation: learning how to let go of holding on and holding back. ~ Pema Chodron
