Hey Sunny,

http://www.buddhanet.net

There should be good examples of minfullness meditation here with detailed explanations of the practice. It's something I do a lot and find really helps. Try a few techniques until you find something that works for you. There'll be days when nothing works and other days when magic happens.

The 'letting go' is actually not becoming attached to your thoughts as they arise more than letting go. What I mean is the thoughts arise largely all on their own, the trouble starts when we latch onto one or more of them and start actually 'thinking' about it. Know what I mean. It's like a babble thread. You can see the original post, and acknowledge it but whether you become attahed to it or not is a separate thing. You can read it and let it pass without response and without thinking any more about it. Or you can start to attach to it and start really thinking about it and respond and have it on your mind all day or even for days, or worse yet this single thought that didn't even originate in you can cause your thinking to shoot off in a dozen different directions that have you off balance in all kinds of ways for days. Does that make sense?
