Attachment to the impermanent

We are wired for attachment

in a world of impermanence.

How we negotiate that tension

shapes who we become.

We create an identity figure, we call him/her “I”, “me”, “mine”, our vaunted “Ego”.

 

The “Ego” attaches to approval, pleasure and control.

 

Approval, pleasure and control are completely impermanent, somewhat abstract, and a road to suffering.

 

Try letting all that go, breathe, enjoy what your eyes see without comment.
