“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
“Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain, but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.” ~ Unknown
This journey of life can feel overwhelming at times. Western society has conditioned us to strive to be the best at everything. We learn at a very young age that we will be loved when we are the best.
“If there’s no breaking then there’s no healing, and if there’s no healing then there’s no learning.” – One Tree Hill

“Detachment means letting go, no attachment simply means letting be” ~ Stephen Levine
Non-attachment is not detaching. To detach is to move away from. To remove. To detach is to separate. Separation leads to duality. Duality between the heart and mind produces an internal separation which can bring conflict and suffering. Detachment can also result in suppression. I am always preaching that we should not attach to our thoughts. That we should sit with our emotions and just let them be.
