F**k It

Posted on the 04 February 2013 by Macnelliebus1 @macnelliebus

Not F**k Off.  F**k It. A short hand way to let go of what’s not useful, what causes us suffering.  A Western approach to the Buddhist idea of non attachment.

Our brains get a small burst of instant relief when we swear.  It’s why women turn the air blue in delivery rooms.  Sadly it doesn’t work so well for habitual swearers.  There has to be something a bit taboo about the swear words used.

But back to F**k It.  I’ve just spent the weekend on a F**k It course with John Parkin and Gaia Pollini who run courses at The Hill That Breathes retreat centre in Italy & other places.  We spent a lot of time relaxing, breathing, chi gung-ing and doing exercises on letting go and doing what we love.  I’d done most of the career change execises before.  I didn’t really get into the free form movement to trance music.  What I did get out of it was finally a bit of understanding about letting go, allowing things to be easy and learning how to slowly, step by step, start listening to my body.

So here’s my F**k It list:

Fuck It to – sadness, purpose, money, security and being liked.

Try it.  It’s fun.
