Renunciation of what?

happinessRenunciation is not so much about ‘giving up’ but more about ‘letting go’. Letting go of the ‘need’ to have something or someone or to be somewhere.

What ties me down is not the ‘thing’ itself but the ‘need’ within the self that surfaces for that. It is not about what I have or what I enjoy, but the ‘need’ for that in order to keep me emotional, mentally and physically comfortable and safe. It is an indication that there is some degree of dependency.

It may not be easy to identify, but when I am able to renounce this ‘need’ which lies behind ‘things’, and when I am able to let go of that ‘need’, then I set myself free spiritually.

This, to me, is true renunciation.
