Overcoming Attachments

“Be open to everything yet attached to nothing.” Buddha

We cannot avoid the feeling of attachment. Once we start to get used to things, once we setup routines the more we get to be attached. The harder it is for us to remove ourselves in the picture.

And that overcoming attachments is simple to say but hard to take into action.

I like what the Buddhists call non-attachment. As everything in this world is temporary, and that these things, events or people will eventually come to its end. 

Once they have fulfilled their purpose in your life, they will leave. And the hard truth is you have to let them because if you don’t, it will only cause you unending cycle of pain and suffering.

Acceptance is the key. Because if you do, it will liberate you and you will never realize that you have surpassed the test and moved on to the next level.

Let go of the attachments but take note of the lessons it brought as these lessons will be of great use in your future.

“Most of our troubles are due to our passionate desire for and attachment to things that we misapprehend as enduring entities.” Dalai Lama


Life has an interesting way of telling me that I am a special chocolate chip cookie baked personally by the hands of God (well, just as everyone of us!). I am loving the challenges. A widow at a young age yet keeping a positive view of the future. Still a believer of magic, fate and true love, taking each day one small step at a time. I have a grand dream! ;-)
