Relax, Think, and Let Go

"You have to allow things to happen. The more you sort of relax -- it doesn't mean you don't pursue something or work at it, but the more relaxed you are as you're doing it, the more open you are, the more you can see the different options that you have. So as you release the pink bubble, symbolically you're saying, "OK, I want this to happen, and now I'm open. And I'm willing to have it happen, and if it's not going to happen, I'm willing to see something even better."

What does Gawain mean when he refers to the "pink bubble?" He is referring to a visualization of a thought as contained inside a pink bubble. The idea is to visualize a state of affairs and capture it mentally, as if it existed in a bubble or another form of display, and then let go of it, to let it exist among other thoughts as one of many possible options which one may or may not elect to pursue.
