I’ve usually found the practice of letting go to be very helpful, in the vein that clinging is often a source of suffering, and so with letting go one can lessen the problem. I have tried to cultivate a spirit of letting go. But lately I’ve been wondering whether it’s possible to let go of too many things, to let go of essential motivations. There has been a distinct decrease in my enthusiasm for studying dhamma and meditating, and I have been feeling a little lost and lacking direction.
Is there such a thing as letting go too much?
