If the monkey doesnt let go of the tree he is stuck to it. If the bird doesnt fly out of the nest he dies in it. The snake that keeps its skins looses its ability to stretch. Hands with gloves cant feel or heal. Hold on to your breath and your life will end. All of these things show us that life depends on letting go and if you do not, you will end up in the ultimate letting go. Slow death or connecting and letting go only you will know which train you chose.

Depends on your idea of marriage! and also worth taking in to account your partners idea also. Thing is these ideas change! Better to start in the right place at least.

They look attractive and worth a try, but how long can you wear them for?

As long as you like.

After reading testimonies it seems the pain is very likely to return once they take the product off so perhaps its best to leave on until the earth is recycled.


"I just have to let you know what a difference your socks made. One evening I was a bit exuberant in doing some stretching and woke up the next morning with severe pains in the front of my ankles and down my shins. I could hardly walk down the stairs to get my new socks. I put them on and within about 20 - 30 min. was able to get around the house. The severe pain was reduced to a bearable ache and I was able to get through the day. I took them off in the evening and almost immediately the pain in the front of my ankles increased again. I can't tell you how your socks helped me. My only thing now is to have you guys make a longer sock that will cover my shins... up to the knee maybe like knee socks.
Thanks again for a great product."

If an adult doesn't let go of his/her past, they are ruled by it.....

Keep adding to the list people, it's a good topic.

Life is about both attachment and detachment. The monkey who does not hold onto a tree has no home, the bird who does not return to the nest gives its babies no chance for life, the snake that isn't attached to skin has no protection, a hand with no glove can be cut and bruised, and the person who does not breathe back in is just as dead as the one who doesn't breathe out.

Ebb and flow, attachment and detachment, life and death, they're all integral parts of existence so to have one without the other is silly in my opinion.

a reply to: 3NL1GHT3N3D1 One wise person said, [ the problem is not enjoyment, only attachment to enjoyment] Is that possible? Dont know but can try, a little detachment may help the result.

I appreciate what you are getting at with this thread in terms of how we must learn to release our attachments. However to actually be truly free of all that binds and deludes us, we must recognize the Reality in which all appears (and disappears). On that basis we can discover that we are already fundamentally free of what arises in any given moment.

Our fundamental being or awareness itself is not actually bound to anything - that is why at root we never feel we age. Does awareness or consciousness actually age in your experience? Fundamentally, awareness does not age, nor is it attached (or detached) from anything arising.

Awareness simply is. Awareness is not any thing arising, yet is not separate from any of it. A paradox indeed.

I liked the poem, ancient thunder. Well done.

But the terms attachment and detachment describe no process, method, nor behavior in humankind. Hence, "letting go" is only ever a metaphor, and a monkey, only ever an analogy.

Consequently, life does not depend on letting go.

Great reply and very helpful, yes I agree with that view. That is the ultimate view, on other levels there are other views, more mundane, but very real to those who perceive them. We all are at some point of discovery with regard to the nature of consciousness and our self.

Scientificly you are spot on, I often notice that you are.

Yes, this is so true and you are so right. Life depends on nothing in particular and everything at the same time,would have been much more precise. On the other hand, what I meant was a life most definitely depends on letting go, specially during certain important moments, events. Just like our friend in this video.
