Don't worry about being sure about the feeling being wanting approval or control etc, that's just you mind analysing it. When you hear the releasing question, just notice the feeling and notice where it arises in the body, welcome it and then release it. sS long as you release and you feel lighter, it doesn't really matter if you can identify it to a particular want, you've still released.
It is exactly as it is written, anything you want, even a parking spot, release on it until you are hootless. This is a way to keep Step 4 (Release Continuously) in place. Examples:
"I wanted to fly with nobody on the seat next to me to have both armrests to do my 90-days homework. There was someone next to me. I released until I didn't care. Right after the plane began to move, he ran to the rear side of the plane and stayed there."
"Parking spot. I always release on them when I go to the mall, I always get them."
"Daily release on have a day that just flows"
Oh I see. Thank you guys for quick replies, I really appreciated and those example really help.
I always understood this to mean 'get everything by releasing only, without the need for action (which may also be combined with releasing but does not need to be)' So one could make a distinction between 'releasing to get rich, along with suitable action' or 'releasing to get rich without even the need for for acting to make it happen.' Is that right? If it is not right, I cannot see why Lester would have made a point of adding the word 'only.'
Thus you could lose weight by releasing, in support of a diet and exercise. Or one could lose weight only by releasing without other steps. And though it sounds surprising, Lester apparently claimed to have done exactly that: lose weight while standing on scales, without the usual actions which would also be required. I quipped in a recent post that the butt method probably does not work for keeping fit, but it is hard to avoid that impression that Lester would have said it could. A tough one, and an interesting question!
When you know that there's no "you" to take action, it doesn't matter.
Things just move. The earth rotates, trees grow, planes fly and human bodies take action. Who cares how do you get the goal as long as you release until you get it?
Lester mentions in 'the way' that action does happen, but that you are not the 'doer'. It's like you're watching your body move. So it's not that you sit in a room and do nothing (since releasing is still action). it's just that the body does things and it feels effortless. Or, sometimes the body doesn't even have to do anything either. Either way around, its feel effortless. Hope this helps!
