I know, I am aware that attachment to events, feelings, thoughts can keep me from fully living in the present moment.
As I loop over scenarios and re-examine what happened, I try to catch other perspectives, but so doing, I dwell in the past.
Buddhism speaks of non-attachment or non-clinging. I know that it’s something i strive for.
As in this daily dharma from tricycle.com:
The Mind of No-Clinging
There’s no school that says, ‘Cling.’ Liberation is about cutting, or dissolving, or letting go of, or seeing through the attachment to anything. The description of the mind of no-clinging may be different in the different schools, but the experience of the mind of no-clinging is the same. How could it be different?
And so I consider this.
no one feels the vibe
everyone feels the chaos
what have i missed
how to resolve
how to smooth
attached to what ifs
