Attachment to things influences our mood, behavior, wellbeing

The Tennis Court Oath of the French Revolution.

Our moods ebb and tide. Thoughts and emotions impact these changes.

 


The Zen Buddhists point the finger at attachment, identifying with our thoughts and “Ego.”

 

Judging an event, a person, or a situation attaches a ball and chain around our ankle.

 

 

We will defend, argue and sometimes fight to uphold that judgment. This is exhausting and drains vital energy.

 

 

Judgment is “Ego” based, emotionally charged. I, me, mine can be pissed, enraged, jealous, anxious, traumatized or joyful.

 

 

These emotions and moods can change instantly with external stimuli or focused attention.

 

 

Look at this election, people hating for their attachment to one party or the other, belief in a proposition.

 

 

Strong negative emotions remove us from our chance at happiness.

 

 

Hate and happiness are never in the same ballpark, never linked.

 


Where one is present the other is absent.
