YK’s 365 Release: Day 61

There’s the expression, “what I would give to do xyz”.

I realize with this 365 Release I could be willing to eventually give anything and everything up. I have been releasing things even beyond what I write about daily. What was once so difficult for me to let go at the start of my 365 Release, now has become simple. I feel I can release everything now.

But there are certain things I won’t or can’t release for now. Some of my favorite and defining books look like this on the inside because I love subtext, margins and incorporating notes. I’m the only one that can really use those. I won’t give up my favorite pair of jeans because they are so worn, no one can really accept them. I am not giving away books that were written by my professors, friends, family. I am not giving away any of my meditation items or gifts.

At least not yet.

Who knows where my non-attachment practice will be at day 300. Maybe I’ll want to just give everything up by then.

I’ve definitely reached a point where I almost want people to come over and “shop” at my house and take whatever they want. I’ll have to contemplate that one further.

Today, I’m releasing dozens and dozens of books. Because this 365 Release is really catapulting me into a place where I am actually learning non-attachment effectively. That means, this practice is already a success.

If you want books, please let me know. My books fall in the following topics: critical theory, race theory, queer theory, political education, revolutionary theory, philosophy.

[I created the 365 Release Project to practice non-attachment, letting go and change by giving away 1 thing a day for 1 year. The background, vision and guidelines to the 365 RELEASE project are here. The running list of everything I have released is here.]
