themiddlepane said: To fully let go of myself, it seems that I also have to fully let go of everything I love including my wife, kids, family, and friends. I have to essentially let who I am die in order to be at one with everything. If I die, does that love die? Or is love a passing emotion and just something else that I hang on to longer than I should?

You don’t have to let go of anything. You have to realize that everything has let go of you. You are not attached to anything in reality. Everything will die and change regardless of your love and attachment. 

Therefore renunciation isn’t an act but an awareness. It is an awareness that all things will pass away, that all things are not yours, and that you exist among and yet beyond it all. 

When your love for your family and friends can simply be called Love, you will Know. Dying from a smaller world into a larger one. 

Namaste, my friend.
