Casual discussion amongst spiritual friends.

I agree with this.
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Like I said before I don't want to get into a debate, so I won't. I edited my last post for this reason, after reflecting on the potential frustration I might be causing some people and also because saying such things tend to require lots of clarification and then those clarifications require lengthy discussions and on and on it goes until both parties are still convinced of their original positions and nothing has been accomplished.
I am sorry, my mindfulness lapsed and I made an unskilful post, I hope you understand why I don't wish to continue this discussion.
Four types of letting go:
1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
