Sisiter Stan on letting go:

It is not easy to die to old ways, but letting go does more than break with some of our past and deplete what we thought was important. Every little death we die, every little letting go, turns us into something new. Every search, every new question about what is, forms and shapes us, and it brings new freedom, new life.
